We went to the Inn for dinner this past weekend based on recos from friends. They were not terribly busy, but the service was a touch slow. No bread was brought to our table, but we saw another table had some, so that was odd. Maybe you had to ask for it? The appetizer was good (carmelized onion & tomato tart w/ goat cheese). I had the special - chicken - which was average, and my husband had a filet, which was good - juicy, cooked perfectly & good flavor. The mashed potatoes for both of us were thin & watery. I had carrot cake for dessert, which was cold & a little hard & dry. My husband ordered the chocolate velvet cake, but they'd run out of it, so he just had icecream, which he said wasn't anything special. Our biggest disappointment was the total lack of anything seasonal on the menu! It's October in the Piedmont for crying out loud! No pork, no apple pie or tart, no sweet potato soup, or pie - you catch my drift.
