The grounds are gorgeous, and the people are wonderful! We wandered around, decided to eat there, it was early in the evening, there was no room but we were brought to the small pub area, where we had a great meal with lovely surroundings. The risotto was great, the ribeye perfectly cooked. I love finding these places!

This is a great restaurant. We stayed at the inn where the tavern is located so we ate here a few times. Each meal was very special. The atmosphere is great as well.

Good selection, good presentation and really good food. Menus are new each Tuesday. When they run out of any entree, it's not on the next days menu. Good and fresh tasting fish.

The Whales Rib is classy but also it is a very relaxing atmosphere. The building itself is comfortable, with the open -ceiling barn in the dining room and, quaint barroom. Whether you are there for the first time or for the twentieth, you're sure to feel the same...welcome.
