We had a birthday dinner with 7 of us. The food was FANTASTIC and the service was terrific. This exceed all our expectations as the owners made special arrangements to accommodate our party. Food was perfectly prepared and the sitting was elegant and fun. I would recommend this for any time you want to have your expectations exceeded beyond FANTASTIC.

Every meal served at the inn during a corporate retreat was delicious with layers of flavor! My favorite was the grilled salmon served at dinner! Perfectly cooked and served with a caper sauce!

We have been huge fans of Inn On The River for many years because of the relaxing atmosphere and beautiful surrounding area. The dining experience is definitely the "icing on the cake" (pun intended). Most recent experience was very unique with a quail appetizer and duck entree. Chef Lupe always produces the the best menu with the highest level of... More

My mother and I stayed one wonderful night while visiting family. Very peaceful place to stay. We sat for an hour on the green, grassy lawn which is next to the River. Many places to sit. Too cold to swim this time of year but the pool area was very nice. The location is perfect and we walked everywhere. The... More

This place serves dinners in two sittings on Friday & Saturday nights from a monthly prix fixe menu. The appetizer was a tomato and mozzarella tart. Crisp and flakey. Followed by a mixed salad with candied pecans, strawberries, mandarin, and shaved parmesan. Excellent, fresh, and light on the dressing. Main course was steak with vegetables. Steak cooked medium rare and... More

Last night was our first time for dinner and we were extremely impressed and completely satisfied. You choose your 4 courses from a monthly menu the morning prior to your reservation. We were greeted upon arrival, once seated, the 6:00pm dinner service began. You will have an hour and a half experience of well prepared food, a view of the... More

From the moment you walk in the door, until you walk out the door to leave you are taken care of. The staff is unbelievably kind and attentive. The grounds are so nice you feel no reason to even go anywhere. But you should, the little town of Glen Rose is a nice getaway to do just what the sign... More

We go here often and it is a quiet place with excellent food. It is a perfect retreat. Sit on the bank of the river and watch nature.
