Crab Cake Too Die For!
Dec 12, 2014 by: B M from Baton Rouge, Louisiana
What a wonderful place to enjoy a wonderful meal. That sums it up for me. It is an old gem being kept by two compassionate people.
Great food & service in historical inn
Dec 02, 2014 by: Jim M from Boonsboro, Maryland
We had Sunday brunch with a group of about 15 of us for a family reunion. They food and service were impecable and the inn itself is very intersting. I hear that it is also very nicely decorated for Christmastime. Food was delicious. I highly recommend it.
Reminded Me of Birthday Dinners as a Child
Nov 17, 2014 by: Judy J from Owings Mills, Maryland
When I was a child, my mother took us to a restaurant in DC for our special birthday meal. This place reminded me of that time. The restaurant is really old (1732, if memory serves). On the inside you can not really see the history because of the decorations (the Christmas decorations were all ready in place). Hundred of snowflakes, glass balls and package ornaments hung from the ceiling. Lights and all manor of Christmas decoration were in every nook and cranny. Our server, Bruce was great and we enjoyed our experience at the restaurant.
Best Restaurant in Maryland
Nov 17, 2014 by: Kimo688889 from Chicago, Illinois
I back up this hyperbole by noting that Tammy may be the best waitress in Washington County/Boonsboro/South Mountain area. Started with cocktails and both wife and I had crab cakes. These are the real thing with real crab and not Mrs. Paul's filler. Salad was fantastic and sides were abundant. This was Filet Night, but I could not resist the Crab Cakes. I also had a half dozen Oysters Rockefeller and it was fantastic. Large party was coming in later that evening and they had asked that we dine early at 5:30 and we felt we had the place to ourselves, which we did not. This is a must for my Civil War-Wine Tasting Tour and hope to return. Bill with tip came to about $100+
Birthday Dinner with reservations
Oct 26, 2014 by: Maggie D from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
Made reservations in person 1 week prior to our requested day for 5:00 PM seating for a particular table in a quite corner of the main dining room. Upon arrival at exactly 5:PM the Hostess informed me that she could not give me the table I requested as someone came in a little earlier than us and wanted to sit there so we can just look around and pick another one or wait 20 - 40 minutes until they finish (restaurant was empty, why couldn't she have sat them somewhere else ?) She acted like this was a routine occurrence when it comes to reservations, they mean nothing. Service was just ok, not up to fine dining standards, some of the food tasted questionable, the only 2 items that were halfway decent were the Filet Mignon and the French Onion Soup. I had picked this restaurant for the reviews on their Beef Wellington since this is one of my husbands favorites, but this one was " Not Worth The Money " also as some reviewers mentioned they definitely need to do some refurbishing on the entrance and main walkways from the parking lot, a little dangerous if walking in heels. Very disappointing evening, will not be revisiting this establishment!
