Love this restaurant. The food was fabulous -- even had a lower-priced salmon dish on the children's menu for my fish- loving kids. The staff was very friendly. The building is a historic structure frim the 19th century. We were allowed to tour it and it is truly beautiful.

My family and I celebrated my 75th birthday in the Wine Room of The Worthington Inn. The inviting space accommodated our group of ten perfectly. We had a lounge area for cocktails and appetizers and a dining table for a seated dinner and dessert. The service was excellent, the food delicious and attractively plated. Vance and our efficient waitress were... More

I have been wanting to go to The Worthington Inn for a long time but it just didn't seem to work out until I purchased a Dining Original gift certificate from there. My husband and I knew we were going to be in the area so we went for an early dinner and we enjoyed it so much! It was... More

This is one of my family's favorite restaurants in town. We love it day & night. The food is always great, the servers are sweet and everyone seems to genuinely care about the food they serve. Speaking of food, they use a TON of local ingredients if you are into that sort of thing. They also serve a more casual... More

Very good food and service. You can either sit in a formal, small dining room (there are many small, intimate rooms) or in the pub/bar area or outside on the porch or patio.

We had been to the restaurant many times and usually had a wonderful meal and good service. Our experience recently has made us rethink visiting again. The bar area is charming and historic, but when the staff congregates around the host area chatting about business things in a less than professional manner, it certainly takes away from the ambience. Another... More

We had a table of 12 for the monthly Chefs table event. The food is fabulous and themed. This month was Bastille Day. The food in each of the five courses is explained on why it was picked and prepared. Wine is paired with each course by an expert from a wine shop across the street. Great information for foodies...

I found the Worthington Inn while driving past one morning. Without searching for reviews, t was obvious local and I made it a point to have an evening meal with a co-worker while working in the area. And I was a great choice. We arrived a little after 8:00 pm and was told dining closes at 9:00 pm. But we... More

This is a gem of a restaurant. The food is so delicious and freshly prepared. There are unique choices, made with local ingredients, especially in house preparations. I love every meal I have there.

Had dinner on a Thursday night. Restaurant was not crowded, and gave us a quiet corner. The couples enjoyed a leisurely meal and a great opportunity to catch up after a very long separation. Service was attentive without being annoying. And the food was enjoyable, especially the desserts!
