I had some good memories of this magnificent old historic inn from my childhood, and even though I had heard less than stellar reports of the dining room, I wanted to like it, I really did. So my husband and I stopped in for an early (4:30) dinner one Sunday, and made our way to the dining room, assisted by...

We went to dinner for my wife's birthday, there were 4 of us. When we were seated, we were the only ones in the dining room but then again it was 6:30 so a little early. We were a little concerned since there were no clientele in the dining room and then we found that the bar tender was also...

Used to love going to love this place when I was a kid, but now 30 years later, we tried it again for my Dad’s 75th Birthday party and it has fallen down hill. Where do I begin? We were supposed to get a private room for a party of 30, but Elaine decided to move us into the main...

I went to Rider's Inn for my girlfriend's grandmother's birthday. I read reviews like I do for most places whe I am visiting the for the first time. I ordered the pot roast. It was cooked properly and the sides were made to order as well. The server's attitude however, were less than to be desired, but I was satisfied...

We had been there many years ago for a very special occasion so the place has a special place in our hearts. We have gone back a few times over the years and have watched it go downhill. Used to be known for the potato leek soup. We had it this time and swear there were no leeks in it...

I stayed at Rider's Inn on 10/21/2016 (last week) after flying in from London for the funeral of one of the most important people in my life. I was booked in for four nights and had asked for the quietest and nicest room available. As you'd expect, it was also the most expensive. The first night was quiet and comfortable...

Over the years my family, friends and relatives, as well as co workers, have gathered at Rider's Inn for many different reasons....dinner, holidays, celebrations, grab a drink, sit outside and enjoy the weather and the ambiance of the stoic building. I would highly recommend this venue to all as the food is above average and the ambiance is relaxing.

Thank you sooo much for your kind words. Your comments came to us over an inquiry about the cost for Easter Brunch. We are unable at this time to know what it will cost but it will be fabulous and a good bargain. Thank you again and we hope to see you over the Christmas holidays. Remember we have the...

My friend and I went here for the Sunday brunch. It was a complete buffet that included breakfast and lunch items. Everything was tasty and presented well. Our waiter Nick was on top of things. It is a bit pricey but worth it if you are hungry. Make sure to try their desserts.

“Ask for a room away from the bar for a more peaceful night of rest.”

“*TIP* If you are a sensitive sleeper, request a room away from the bar side. There is live music often played in the bar, which can get a little loud. If you are easily bothered by sound, don't sleep above the bar.”
