My partner and I went to the Carversville Inn on a Saturday afternoon for a spur of moment lunch. We were greeted by the hostess when we walked in and offered inside or outside dining. We opted to sit out on the porch. The tables are pretty much roadside but there is very little traffic if you don't count joggers and bicyclists.
There was one person at the bar and not a soul in the dining rooms and only one other couple dining outside when we arrived.
Marybeth took our drink orders. Not a lot of wine choices and only bottled beer so we just had water.
Orders taken, we were served warm bread with fresh butter. Very nice.
I ordered the catch of the day, which we were told was Panko breaded Halibut with tomatoes, onions, capers and olives served on top. To call it catch of the day would be a real stretch. The fish was a thin commercially prepared portion. It wasn't bad, just really disappointing. It was served with saffron rice, a few green beans (7) and two pieces of squash.
My partner had a grilled Reuben served with mixed greens. The greens were okay, but the sandwich was not. She could not taste the sandwich meat due to the overpowering cheese and vinaigrette dressing. She said it was not good at all.
Bring plenty of money. Carversville inn is a bit pricey. Just shy of $40 with tip and no drinks or dessert for a sandwich and mediocre meal is just a bit too much.
Probably won't ever go back. But it is a beautiful setting.
