The Old Rittenhouse Inn is one of the most historic Inn's in Bayfield. The Inn has been exquisitely maintained providing outstanding atmosphere for a wonderful dinner. The staff are outstanding hosts. Our waiter has worked at the Inn for 40 years, a statement of the owner's valuing staff. Our dinners were outstanding; scallops and steak stuffed with oysters. We were... More

My husband and I recently were in Bayfield to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary and we choose the Landmark as our "big" night out to celebrate. We were not disappointed! Amazing service, our waiter was knowledgeable, helpful and very personable. We split a bottle of great red wine and both chose the tasting menu. The dishes were thoughtfully prepared... More

Many of the restaurants in Bayfield have great food, good service and interesting ambiance. But this one is a step above. It's fancy without being pretentious. The wine is finer, the service superb, and the prices on par with the other places in town. It definately the place to go for a special evening.

We stayed at the bed & breakfast so decided to do the 5-course gourmet meal. Was very fun and very good! Loved the level of service and quality of food. My husband had the Hereford Ribeye and I did the Seared Scallops. The dessert was not necessarily up to par with the rest of the meal, but the rest of... More

We received the breakfast complimentary since we stayed at the Inn. There were nice choices. I had quiche and whitefish( whitefish very good but super small piece) and husband had bacon and scrabbled eggs with some different touches. But both meals were barely warm. The yogurt and fruit side dish was ok with some very small croissants. I did not... More

While guests at this B&B we had breakfast here every morning and dinner one night of our stay. Service was attentive and pleasant without being obtrusive. The food was uniformly delicious--each breakfast had a different first course of pastry and fruit. The dinner we had was really wonderful. We both opted for the $59/person chef's menu. It included a soup... More

Wonderful place for a special occasion. We had steak and fish for dinner one night, the food was excellent and the service was attentive. The surroundings are just beautiful. We also ate breakfast there twice (because we were staying at the Inn) and the food was quite good, There was a choice of quiche, egg dishes, or pancakes, along with... More
