I have trouble even giving this place 1 star.
Its a cute town, with a romantic backdrop of trees and old time village feel, but the service is horrendous, so much so that I will NEVER go back (and I've eaten here in the past - the food is ok).
My cousins and I were out for a hike - all of us live with in a 45 minutes of here and grew up hiking in this area. We figured we would turn it into a nice afternoon and get lunch here as well. My cousin purchased a gift certificate from http://restaurants.com since it was available for st. peter's inn.
We arrived there - ordered drinks, and promptly told our waitress that we had the gift certificate, and she told us she didn't think they took them any more. She got her manager over, and he was the RUDEST manager of a restaurant I have ever encountered. He obviously stereotyped us that since we were in our late twenties and hiking we might not even purchase much food, so the first few words out of his mouth were "o good you haven't ordered yet". Really sir? Good start.
He then proceeded to yell at us because we bought the gift certificate, and went into detail on his problems with http://restaurant.com and how they won't take his name off of their list, and that he will NOT honor any gift certificates from there. He treated us as if this were our fault and basically kicked us out.
Now, he could have done several things to make this situation work for everyone:
a. could have just offered us a smaller discount on the food $10 instead of $25 for example.
b. could ahve said he couldn't honor it this time, but would be willing to give us a $10 voucher for our next meal.
c. could have just thrown in a free app or something instead.
But no, he yelled at us in front of all of the clientele already at the restaurant. He treated us as if we were 14 years with no money, when in reality, each of us easily would have spent at least $40 each on food and drinks, and would be willing to come back on more than one occasion. He should have just honored the gift certificate or offered some different discount and taken up his battle with http://restaurant.com instead.
Worst experience at any restaurant. Food is nothing special, and terrible service.
