“Service Personified - A Foodie's Delight”
Reviewed July 14, 2014

Recently enjoyed a superb dinner at The Boar's Head Inn in the Old Mill Room while entertaining guests from out of town. The four different appetizers and dinners were all impeccably served by Nancy with a wonderful supporting cast. This experience provided us with some of the most attentive and impeccable service in the wonderfully charming ambiance of a room overlooking beautiful grounds, gardens and a lake. The menu is creative and thoughtfully presented to appeal to a wide variety of tastes and desires and Executive Chef Bill Justus shows his culinary skills in each beautifully presented dish. Kudos to this fine establishment.

“Old World Charm”
Reviewed July 7, 2014

If you're looking to slow down and eat in peach and quiet, with old world service and attention, and real linens, then this is the place to go. Located in the Boar's Head Inn and Spa. They have an extensive brunch and the food is very good. There is an outside dinning area also in good weather.

We were seated promptly, but by a young expectant Mom who obviously was not having a good day and couldn't even come up with a smile let alone a pleasant welcome. We then waited ten minutes to be offered a drink and had to ask for bread for our table. When our waiter brought our drinks he unexpectedly asked if we were ready to order and we said we would like to enjoy our drink for a few minutes and then we proceeded to wait another 15 min before he returned to take our order. The meal was average for the pricing. The seared foie gras was overpowered by the buttermilk cornbread it was served on, the crab cake was more filling than crab. The pork tenderloin was the better of our choices and dessert was quite good. Service is the key though. Sometimes restaurants that have been touted over the years as THE place to go, sometimes forget the basics of really good service and the public who maybe isn't part of the crowd that always visits, are put off by pretentiousness and poor service. It is a lovely facility, but without pleasant, attentive service it is a turn off.
