Our company christmas lunch was here last winter. It was a delicious meal and the private room we had was perfect. It has an old house feel yet class and elegance too. I would definitely recommend coming here.

General Warren Inn is a throw back...literally. It breathes of history. You can almost smell the smoke from old clay pipes as you dine on classic American fare. This is a great place for a quiet date night for the the crowd that is past hitting up the bar and club scene. Food is good and can be hearty. Not... More

This inn Deserves a superior Rating!!! The food is extraordinarily well prepared, the service is excellent by caring staff who relate to their clientele.

Yes, you have to take advantage when things are going well and there is no other way to finish a good day than having a delicious dinner in a nice restaurant. General Warren gave me both experiences. The service was very good. The building is beautiful and with easy access. But let's go to the food. For appetizer I wanted... More

This is a beautiful historic inn. We sat in the main dining room and the ambience was very colonial. I tend to like places like this. The staff was very attentive the whole evening. They made excellent suggestions and were able to answer many questions about the menu. I had a mesclun salad and for a starter the Duck Confit... More

I had only ever been to General Warren for banquets. The dinner menu is very pricey, and appears to be a "special occasion" spot. However, recently, I have enjoyed a couple of fine lunches here. Both the historic bar and the patio offer comfortable casual service, with reasonable prices for drinks and sandwiches. The outdoor patio is surrounded by greenery,... More

My wife and I had an anniversary dinner at the General Warren. This was my second visit to the restaurant and my wife's first visit. The beauty of the building and the property is second to none. We chose to dine on the Terrace where one is surrounded by well kept greenery and flowers. Despite the July temperatures, the evening... More

...but my recent visit was such a disappointment and not at all what I've experienced in the past. The ambiance outside was delightful as always, but the food and the service were off. Our waitperson took time to explain that the menu had been revamped. As a recent reviewer noted, prices have increased , however my dinner plate was half-empty... More
