I went once for a convention and couldn't wait to come back with my husband. A meticulously maintained inn with a lush tree covered back yard that goes down to the river. We enjoyed lovely rooms, eager to please staff, wonderful breakfasts with china and fresh flowers looking out on the tree covered yard with pool. We sat in some chairs along the river and just read one morning. We went for the wine tasting and gourmet dinner event. It was held outside in perfect weather and couldn't have been more enjoyable. My husband loved it all. A definite 5 star and A+ experience.

All courses were good. Very good service and we enjoyed our quiet evening as we were the only people there that evening.

The au gratin potatoes were the best I've ever eaten. The menu is limited but has never disappointed. At a business retreat the luncheon offering was excellent. The setting is charming and romantic. BYOB. An added benefit.

We have been frequent patrons of Inn on the River's weekend-only fine dining experience for several years. They have a monthly 4-course prix fixe menu with various selections for main course and dessert. Monthly menus are posted on their website (www.innonriver.com) Restaurant is BYOB with no corkage fee.

We have never eaten a bad meal at this establishment, and love that we can enjoy a really nice bottle of wine with our dinner without paying restaurant markups and settling for a mediocre bottle of wine. No corkage is also a plus. The dining area is intimate and quaint, bordered by picture windows that look out onto the lush and manicured back yard of the Inn.A lovely setting for dining.

Along with the great food and view is the personable staff. They aim to please and have always treated us as special guests, even though we don't stay at the Inn (we have a weekend home nearby).
