“Nice view from their great deck”
Reviewed July 28, 2013

Had a very nice dinner at the Aurora Inn and it was so good we came back the next day for breakfast. Both times we sat on their deck overlooking the lake.

For dinner we loved their fondue and seafood chowder. The scallop dish was excellent.

For breakfast we had the eggs Benedict and it was perfect.

The prices are a little elevated but the atmosphere more than makes up for it.

Highly recommend this place if you can get seated on their outside deck.

“Good food. Inadequate staffing”
Reviewed July 14, 2013

The food was good. Check with the sommolier for local wine choices. Staff was friendly and helpful. Unfortunately we were left out on the deck during a thunder storm without any offer to move. When we ran for cover, our wet food and wine was slow to follow. The restaurant service was poor underlying the excellent quality of the inn.

“Excellent!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Lovely lunch, great crab rolls and sausage pasta, good local wine selection. Service was very good, friendly. Ambience great. Location is the Aurora Inn, built 1833 and lovingly restored. Tables on a beautiful patio, overlooking the lake. Small, intimate tables inside. Will definitely go back for a dinner and stay-over.

“Menu Change”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

The view is spectacular from the deck. The food we had was excellent. I have one admonishment. On the lunch menu is a fondu with pretzel entry. We did not order it because, well, really, pretzels? What we found out later by observing someone who ordered it was that the pretzels were big, wonderful looking homemade pretzels. I think the menu should do a better job of describing this obvious treat. Also, I wished there had been a cheese and meat platter option. All cheese and/or all meat was too much of one without some of the other. I would still highly recommend this lovely Inn for a meal.
