We had looked forward to dinner on Easter Sunday. I rated it poor but it was probably terrible. Admittedly it was at the end of a busy day for the staff, but everything was bad. We started out with dry rolls and an ok glass of wine. There were three of us and we all ordered the lamb dinner. We... More

First of all, great food! Like everywhere in America, SOO MUCH FOOD (too much from us coming from Australia) but definitely enjoyed every bite. The service was good too and we didn't have to wait too long for our meals. Ps, two of us had salads and they were very tasty.

We had one of the most enjoyable Monday night dinners we have ever had. We are long time fans of the Wine Cellar Tastings, but this was our first "dinner" at the Inn in years, and we will definitely be back.

Just had dinner here this past Saturday night. The food was excellent - short ribs, gnocchi, buttermilk onion rings, crab cakes, and a few appetizers. Everything was excellent. The staff Jesus, Junior, and Lupita were very gracious, and even when the restaurant was full, we never once felt ignored or excessively waiting for anything. Definitely will be back.

Went for dinner with friends on a Saturday night. The wait staff was helpful and attentive. The appetizers took a while to come out, but they were well presented and enjoyable. We waited again for our dinners, but they were all exceptional. I was lucky enough to decide on the short rib which was fantastic. Desserts were good as was... More

Went for Sunday brunch. $ 35.00 per person which is pricy. Omelet was good. Chicken and shrimp was terrible. Other sides were just ok. Mamosa's were ok. Save your money and go to a diner.

My boyfriend had been wanting to try this restaurant for a long time so we came here on a weeknight thinking it wouldn't be as crowded and we could have delicious meal. We were put in the small room with 4 tables and a fireplace. Loved it. Wish my meal didn't come out ice cold and had to send it... More

Was taken to this restaurant by two very dear friends for brunch. When we first arrived the room we were seated In was very chilly (bar area). They did take care of the situation.
