When I made the reservation on OpenTable, there was nothing that specified inside or outside. Due to that fact, I assumed the table would be inside. When we arrived, we were told that our table was reserved for outside dining. We were not dressed appropriately for outside dining, but tried to deal with the cold temps for a little bit. My husband and I were both too cold so we asked to be moved inside. The hostess checked and we were able to go inside.
I made a note on the OpenTable reservation that it was our wedding anniversary, but that wasn't acknowledged during our dining experience.
My husband had the pork chop dinner, which he enjoyed. I had the beet salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was very very dry.
Our server, Cameron, was absolutely fantastic. He was very attentive.

Though it did get a little chilly, we ate outside in front of the fireplace. It was lovely, but it would have been nice to get a heads up, as we might have dressed more appropriately.

Food and service was great but the ambiance - due largely to Covid doesn’t line up. Years ago I had a meal in an upscale restaurant after hours with only one other table and skeleton crew in a fairly sizable place. Food and staff were great but the atmosphere was dominated by swinging doors and distant kitchen noise. This was like that experience only the restaurant wasn’t closed, it was just void of atmosphere inside. While Covid is to blame I note other restaurants in the area that manage to pull off liveliness, despite the reduced crowd, so there is the feeling of “getting out”. They seem ideally distanced already given set up! More specifically the dozen(?) sizable chairs upside down on bar during open hours (put them elsewhere or at the bar with discreet note that bar seating is not available), seat the tables so guests aren’t facing the doors or right next to them- or better yet remove tables close to high traffic altogether. Music, either live or piped in would reduce the din of restaurant noise and make for a more relaxed dining experience. The food is wonderful however and the service is great -we’ll be back I’m sure, but we’ll hope for an uptick in atmosphere next time.

Over all the dining experience is just ok. The setting is lovely if a bit dated inside. The food is first rate bar food but the service is not great. It took over an hour for a burger and mac’n cheese- very good but someone was in the weeds! The drinks were very good but again not enough servers. No bus staff so waiters and bar staff had to do it all. Hosts fluttered around more interested in their IPads than guests - not great. In summary- great bar food if you have lots of time and wish to be left alone.

Perfect location for outdoor dining on a pleasant day. Comfortable and seating arranged for privacy and health & safety. Server, Daniella, was excellent. Drinks were clever and enjoyable. Food was fresh and tasty - we only shared a salad and mac/cheese but it hit the spot. Did not feel rushed - it was a perfect location for a visit with an old friend.

We enjoyed great food and service throughout our stay. Our server David was excellent, and everyone followed Covid-19 safety protocols. They forgot the prosciutto on my mother's sandwich and brought her a fresh meal as well as a complimentary glass of wine--way beyond what we expected. I highly recommend the inn and restaurant. We will definitely be back! This is 5-star dining for a very reasonable price.

The food was very good but not for the price. The portions were small for the price but very delicious.The waiter we had was quiet good.
I was confused as to why they ask if its a special occasion, my daughters birthday but did nothing special for her. I thought maybe a free desert or a cupcake with a candle of a birthday song but nothing.
I don't think we will return. Too bad because with a little fine tuning it could well be a great restaurant.
