Rex's Innkeeper is an interesting place. Yes, it's a little dated, but it's a nice addition to a small city. It definitely has curb appeal with pretty landscaping and a fireplace at the front entrance. I joined a group of friends for dinner on a Wednesday night. Everyone had already ordered and I decided to order the fried cod dinner. At $12 something, it included a trip to the salad bar, a choice of potatoes, and 3 large fried fish fillets. The salad bar had your typical 1980s staples: 2 soups, lettuce, veggies, and a few pasta and jello salads. Everything was seemed pretty fresh. I had a little of the clam chowder and a small salad. My hash browns were your typical greasy diner hash browns and the fried cod was suspiciously uniform in size, shape, and breading. I suspect this came out of a box in the freezer. Still, kudos to the kitchen staff, I wasn't that hungry when I arrived, but I managed to eat almost everything. My friends all ordered the prime rib and were very happy to take home leftovers. I learned afterward that prime rib IS their specialty... if I had only known. Our waitress was very sweet and polite and more than accommodating in providing all 7 of us with separate checks. I think my favorite part of the evening however, was the cute little room near the entrance we sat in. It was perfect.

I wish there was an Innkeeper in every town. This is the classic supper club with all the great standards on the menu and salad bar. The salad bar was excellent, I really enjoyed the marinaded vegetables. The wine list is acceptable, and reasonably priced. The main course was the delicious prime rib, for only $15.95. All the servers were pleasant and professional.
This is a gem, if you are in the area it is a must stop. Plus the outside has wonderful landscaping.
A complete package.

Wow! Where can you get PRIME RIB, the Sunday SPECIAL for the $11.95 with all the trimmings, just the right amount of fat for juicy great taste with salad, soup and veggie with a waitress that really loves her job.

Our family had a wedding dinner and reception at Rex's Innkeeper on June 1, 2013. For the most part, the meal was great. My husband and I wondered about the chicken that was served: it seemed a bit red inside. Could that have been the type of chicken or the seasoning? It must have been ok, because no one became sick. It's a nice place to have a wedding or any other event.
