We had dinner here while staying at the Inn. It was amazing! We were able to sit outside on the deck and overlook the water. Our waitperson was attentive without hovering, a delicate balance to achieve. I had the steak and he had the Fruits de Mer (fruit of the sea).. both were amazing! The Caprese salad was good, small,... More

We stopped here for appetizers/drinks one evening and sat on the deck/patio. There was no wait/crowd and we seated ourselves. It was a stunning view and prompt service. We ordered several appetizers, which were decadent, and dessert, which was also very delicious. The bread is so good! While we've never actually ordered a meal here, the appetizers are very large....

This old fashioned restaurant is located in a beautiful setting! The views of the bay from the rear patio is wonderful. The interior of the restaurant is old world dark wood, etc. Parking is fairly limited so go early.

Charming and rustic. A delightful log Inn built in 1907 on the shore of Penn Cove. The dining area overlooks the water and is very charming. The halibut that I had was delicious. They only serve dinner two days per week, however. The remainder of the week and restaurant and bar are closed.

My hubby took me here for our anniversary. It was a very quiet evening because there were a few diners around. It was also dark so the water view was not visible. The food was great - I tried the duck confit and hubby had the halibut and tuna poke. I would try the flame grilled beef tenderloin next time... More

First of all is the service i received here was excellent. Staff was friendly and helpful. The salad was perfectly dressed with on the ground garden petals. Food was perfectly seasoned. I only wish they didn't over cooked the beautiful steelhead!

Since the Inn restaurant has reopened we have visited 4 times each time hoping that it had improved. The environment is splendid but the food and service very disappointing. Not sure we will go again.

I'd avoided the inn for a while after hearing some negative reports, but finally tried it for lunch with a friend. We were given a small but well curated menu with several small plates and burger/sandwich options, each with an interesting twist that elevated it from the usual preparation without being gimmicky. I ordered the tuna poke and my friend... More

My wife and I had a wonderful meal. My wife is a vegetarian and usually the comment is - well we have salads and pasta. Well not here, the chef said I will create something for you and HE DID. He delivered it to the table and explained what he had created and my wife was thrilled with the meal.... More

We were staying at the Inn and had dinner our first evening. Our waitress was very friendly and helpful. The food is excellent. The dining room is part of the Inn itself which dates to the early 1900 (1907?) and is authentically charming
