Fine dining in a hard-to-get-to location. The food was really well prepared. The ride there and the location itself feel like you're stepping back in time, but the recipes are up-to-date serving high-end fine-dining American cuisine.

A very nice menu with food cooked to perfection. Steaks so tender you could cut with a fork! The mashed potatoes had a hint of pesto which was a nice surprise. A nice get away for a delicious meal.

First off ... the food was amazing. The Inn's restaurant is amazing ... remodeled inside yet kept the original look. The property is a real treat. Beautiful gardens, great little accommodations ... a beautiful barn in the back that can be booked for weddings ......More

We didn't actually eat here, but we did stop because of the history of the town. It is a cute unique place. There is even a rope swing in the garden. So cute and a step back in time.

My husband and grandson ate here and had a delicious breakfast. They both loved the sausage gravy and biscuits as they were served on "johnny cakes". Also, my grandson had a huge hamburger at lunch the following day. It filled up a 14 year old...More

I'm sure that the chef would be happy to accommodate your dietary needs. I'd mention it when you make reservations, so a variety of options could be offered.
