“Very good, but not great”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

This is a very good restaurant, but the staff wasn't the friendliest I've ever dealt with. They were serving brunch when we were there, and a neighboring table asked them to make something that wasn't on the menu, but would have been very easy to put together using ingredients that were already in use (I think it was a BLT or something), and the waitress completely blew them off. We've eaten there a couple times, and the food is fine, the decor is cool, but I wouldn't go out of my way to stop there.

“Horrible Food, Rude Hostess”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

I rarely take the time to write reviews, but I felt the need to warn people about spending their hard earned money at this restaurant. I can not speak for the inn itself or the bakery items.

A friend of ours invited our party of nine there at about 4:15 PM on 5/3/13. He had once had a nice experience and good meal at the restaurant about a year ago. We were (far from) greeted by an unsmiling hostess who told us we were there too early and it would be a long wait unless we came back at five. When we returned at 4:50, she looked at her watch and snipped something like, "It's five already??" Wow. Sorry to inconvenience you by patronizing your nearly empty restaurant!

Our waitress, a blonde with a British accent, was charming and efficient. No complaints there. Then the food came. It was beyond horrible. Many of us ordered a chicken and pasta meal that was nothing short of terrible, soggy, and bland. The cheeseburger was "um...edible", according to my son, who was trying to give his most polite but honest response.

The friend who treated us to this awful meal apologized profusely and was clearly embarrassed, as he previously had a positive experience. From the curb, the inn looks delightful and perhaps that was once the case. Our meal was miserable... which makes me more than suspicious that some of the the recent rave reviews are PR generated.

“Bakery is the Best!”
Reviewed June 5, 2013

Great atmosphere, good friendly service and good food. Bakery is homemade, so either save room for desert or make sure to take some home with you! Nummy!

“Recomended for families”
Reviewed May 28, 2013 via mobile

I would recommend this place, we just tried it with our 2 young children. The waitress was very accomodating, because it was off the vacation season we could be aside in a quiet spot so the kids could run around without being annoying to other people. The food is good, we had the whitefish and the chicken that were both fine. There is a children menu.
