We had dinner in the dining room. Very nice table linens and fireplace. We ordered short ribs and mushroom linguini. Both were very good and large portion. Waitress was fabulous and fun. For desert we had the apple dumpling with ice cream and salted caramel. It was very good and somehow we ate the whole thing on already full stomachs.

So, my wife wanted a date night and we decided to go to the Afton House Inn because it has a good reputation for quality service and good food. The service was adequate and the food, mostly, was not good. We came into the hotel lobby and proceeded to the dinning room. After waiting a few minutes someone says that... More

We first visited on Mothers Day 2016, the buffet was overpriced, cold and just plain terrible. We called and spoke to the manager who sent us a $50.00 gift certificate to come back for a second chance. Bad mistake, we visited for dinner last night and the food again was terrible. Way overpriced, bland, Don't waste your money!

I have eaten at the fine dinning area of this restaurant 3 or 4 times now with the same result. The food is horrible. They will tell you how they have this great chef that is so creative. The food has no flavor and it is just your usual foofy food with bad preparation. This time they out did themselves... More

Took 90 minutes and it wasn't good. The pasta is extra salty and just not good. Couldn't finish it. I don't recommend eating here. There are much better choices.

It had been years since we visited the Afton House and thought we would try it again. They put us in the old dinning room which had very little ambiance. The food was okay but for the price should have been much better. The waitress was obvious new and not very well trained. She asked to take our order when... More

Great service, Lynn was a wonderful waitress. We were with another couple and three of the group had prime rib...which I obviously should have had. I had the shrimp scampi, and it was about 5 shrimp in a whole lot of pinko bread crumbs. It was tasteless and not good. The rice was awful and the vegetables were cold. Certainly... More

Three of us went to the Afton House for dinner. We had the spicy chicken drops and tomato bisque soup. For entrees we had the almond walleye, dejon-style beef, and the beef with blue cheese sauce topping. For desert we shared the creme brûlée. All courses were excellent.
