“Once for breakfast and twice for dinner!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

Although three courses were offered for dinner, we never did more than two. Plenty of food but not excessive. Varied menu of salads (loved the roasted beet and orange), appetizers and main courses. Local wines were offered. Wine and beer pairings were suggested. Breakfast can be from the menu or a buffet. We chose from the menu and were very pleased. Lovely view of the golf course, patio, trees, etc. Service was excellent!

“Quiet Dining in Historic Inn”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 22, 2011

Although we have been going to Shawnee for over 30 years (my Dad bought a timeshare there almost at the beginning of timeshares), we hadn't eaten at the Shawnee Inn for nearly 20 year due in part to fluctuations in ownership and upkeep. This weekend we had a late lunch in the River Room and were pleasantly surprised. Prices were moderate+ ($7-15), there was a nice selection of salads, pastas and sandwiches, including a bison burger and lobster mac& cheese which we ordered. Both servings were large (I took 1/2 the mac & cheese home for dinner), tasty and fresh. Service was wonderful and it's a nicely decorated and comforting room overlooking the grounds towards the Delaware River. This was shoulder season so the restaurant was only open on weekends, but the place was not at all crowded, very sadly. I give credit to the new(er) ownership for trying to resurrect this grand dame of a resort --so much history as it hits it's centennial- it can't be an easy road.
