We were the early risers of the day so practically had the place to ourselves. The breakfast buffet was top notch with plenty of variety and the staff was super attentive. Great way to start our day.

The Sunday brunch is 10:30 until 2 pm. We were able to get there after church. The ambience is almost like 1931. Elegant friendly and responsive servers, just like the good old days. The Bacon, Beer, and Potato soup was new for us...and delicious. There was nothing outstanding nor disappointing at the salad table. The generous serving of roast beef... More

The actual restaurant room is beautiful and bright. Menu looks creative at first glance, and we had a hard time deciding what to order because it all sounded so good. When meals arrived, we were both disappointed - food was bland and average. Salad was a pile of mixed greens with barely any other veggies, tuna was overcooked. Decided to... More

We stayed at the Mimslyn Inn while taking my boyfriend to the caverns for his birthday. We had dinner and brunch at Circa '31 and the food and service was excellent.

Friday lunch buffet was very good. Place is clean and comfortable. Staff friendly. After main dining hours you eat in basement at Speakeasy - bar and club atmosphere.

We enjoyed the Christmas Eve Dinner Buffet & Christmas morning breakfast. The cost for the buffet was not bad...$33 per person. It was really just average. But the atmosphere was fantastic! Loved the historic inn.

We were staying in the hotel for our son's wedding, with family and friends. Cound't believe we could get such an excellent meal AND a bottle of wine for a price well below what we would have paid elsewhere. Service was outstanding.

The meal was served heaped on the plate in layers including turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and green beans. A buffet would have been much better and much more appealing. The sweet potato apple bisque was a good starter, and the food was tasty even though it was piled high. The dessert was another story. The piece of pumpkin... More
