We stayed 2 nights here in a beautiful room with all the little extra touches. Breakfast has a menu which is unlike any other B&B, with everything made from scratch. Served on tables with real linen, fresh flowers and china. It is leisurely, taking almost an hour from start to finish. The restaurant serves dinner with reservations recommended as the... More

We eat here for events and planned meals. Have never had a bad meal. New Year's Eve celebration was a blast.

As long as Chef Neil Annis is in charge, do yourself a favor and visit The Inn and Garden Cafe when visiting Onancock, VA on the Eastern Shore of Virginia. With only one exception, (The Eastville Inn Restaurant in Eastville) not one other restaurant has gone so far out of their way to please a vegan customer such as myself... More

Our group of five enjoyed the excellent food and patient service (some people were late). We sampled house-made apple cider with Fireball liqueur along with portabella mushrooms on pastry both provided courtesy of the chef. The Orange Crush cocktail was a hit, as were the three tapas/appetizers we tried. The apple slaw over pulled pork was the favorite. Four of... More

The staff was very friendly and accommodating, and the food was great in terms of presentation, inventiveness and, most of all, taste. Highly recommend and can't wait to go back!

We only stayed here for one night on our trip going south, but would return if in the area. JUST FOR THE BREAKFAST. One of the best breakfast we every had in a B&B, and we have been in many here and in Europe. Sandra actually gives you a menu with about 8 choices. We did not have a chance... More

We always make sure we go to the Inn and Garden Cafe for dinner. We had their scallops and eggplant dish. The scallops were done to perfection!

This is my second visit to this pleasant, cozy cafe. The table setting is crisp and classy with fresh flowers and chilled bottles of water awaiting us. The service is very efficient and pleasant and not rushed. Our table started with apps and the littleneck clams and cold tomato basil soup were standouts. The clams came in a tasty broth... More

Our dinner for four last Saturday night was world class. The service was very attentive but not overbearing and the food and drinks excellent. The taste and presentation of the food was also exceptional. The cold tomato and basil soup served with a mini grilled cheese sandwich was original and yummy as were the main courses of scallops and a... More
