Very good food. Comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. Bar is a little loud. Call before 3pm for reservation the same day. Ask for a table in the dining room.

Sunday lunch on a beautiful autumn day. The Inn offers indoor and outdoor seating along with an excellent bar and extensive menu in the heart of KV.

This restaurant has a great food and wonderful specials! It is HIGHLY recommended that you get a reservation since, yes, everyone loves the Ausable Inn. Do not pay attention to the reviews that complain of seeing empty tables. It is (obviously) because they were reserved!...More

Something is seriously wrong with the management here. Friday night, peak summer season, they TURNED US AWAY from a 3/4 full restaurant because we hadn't made a reservation. Fine. Next day I called at 5pm to make a reservation and they told me they stop...More

We will try Baxter Mountain next year for sure. We saw it, but went to the Ausable Inn. I'm sorry you have such a distaste for NJ & people that invest there. It seems Keene/Keene Valley is thriving. We enjoyed seeing more... More
