It was a nice and cozy evening. The waiter was attentive. The food was just ok. It was very expensive and I probably will not go back because of the price.

Everyone in my group enjoyed their Christmas Eve meals, but I thought $85 per person was definitely too much. The pea soup was outstanding, and the duck breast was very good. Those who had the steak (filet mignon?) gobbled them down. It's a charming spot,...More

Lunch outside on a temperate day in November is to be cherished. It was lovely. Nice patio and tables far enough apart that there was privacy. My Santa Fe chicken salad had avacados, corn, tortilla strips and lettuce in a spicy dressing. It was good,...More

Eating lunch out doors at this restaurant, we (and many others) moved tables to try to escape from the bees. However, they followed the food wherever we went. This spoiled eating outside on a nice day. They should locate what is causing bees to swarm...More

The Old Angler's Inn is tucked in a hill side surrounded by the C&O Toe Path with nature trails. The restaurant has a cozy bar downstairs, outside seating and private rooms upstairs. We recently enjoyed a wonderful dinner and were spoiled by the amazing staff.
