We go to Rex's about twice per year, simply to see a band or enjoy a drink. The food we had at Rex's previously was bland. This is a nice supper club, however, the menu options and taste offerings need to be improved.

Rex's Innkeeper has a wonderful salad bar and soup, excellent steaks and specials, friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. In summer the flowers and gazebo are lovely.

The prime rib at Rex's Innkeeper is always the best. They also have an amazing soup and salad bar. After dinner I would always recommend either a Pink Squirrel or Grasshopper ice cream drink.

I was happily surprised to see broiled scallops on the menu and they were delicious. My husband had the Prime Rib which he enjoyed also.

We did our annual golf outing lunch and with 175 members and family style chicken, Swiss steak, potatoes, dressing, gravy, slaw, etc. which was quite tasty. The microphone worked perfectly and it appeared a good time was had by all!!'

Nothing spectacular. Food was average but waitress was very pleasant. Certainly nothing to write home about.

Went on a weekday early evening. There was a business meeting and a couple of family birthdays going on. There were only two of us yet we were told that we would be called when a table was available even though tables were empty?? Waited about 20 minutes...finally went up to the hostess desk...then she said it wouldn't be too... More

Nothing to get excited about here. Just another supper club with a really big local following so it can be uard to get in at times. Prime rib is a 6 out 10 and that was about the best thing abyone had. Very salty food which is typical for most supprr clubs. Nice little town. Not much going on there.

The only thing going for this place is the salad bar. There is nothing spectacular about the food here. I would even say it's a good old fashion supper club that the townspeople flock to for certain menu items. I would not waste another penny eating at this restaurant.
