We spent the day exploring Mt. Vernon and decided to have lunch at the Inn Restaurant. The service was great and there was a nice selection of meal options. We all had a great lunch and really enjoyed the atmosphere.

This is a wonderful way to end a day at Mount Vernon. The restaurant can be accessed without going into Mount Vernon or you can reach it by going through the gift shop. As Mount Vernon closes at 5:30 we went through the gift shop...More

After our tour we came for a late lunch. We were told our wait would be no more than 30 minutes and it was even shorter than that. Our family loved the skillet cornbread. It was a real hit and not very expensive. I usually...More

I got the shrimp and grits. They were not cooked enough. Hard and had to chew like cow feed. My friend got the fried chicken. Very over fried and dry!!!! Our waitress was not friendly or helpful at all, Her tip reflected that as well.

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The site shows that there are reservations available but none for the day I will be there. I have a large party (7) and don't want to wait for 45-60 minutes. From the reviews it looks like you don't have to have a reservation. Can I wait for a table since I can't get a reservation for my date?

It's best to call - we went just for their Valentine's Day special dinner. It wasn't very intimate, but the food and ambiance was amazing!
