The hotel is pleasant. The bar is great. I prefer a drink at the bar with business friends. They serve food for lunch and I presume for dinner as well, but I've never eaten here. This is ijn the dead center of downtown.

Thank Upperny

We went before a show and had reservations. We asked for hot tea and were given hot water that was actually brown from the coffee machine and when we asked for it to be replaced, the new water still made our tea taste like old coffee. There was only one waitress, yet about four bartenders. They were out of a few menu options and once we ordered our food, we sat for almost an hour without any word from our waitress. The table next to us, which came in a good ten minutes after we did had their appetizers and meals served before we even got our food. The food was absolutely nothing to write home about... The chicken panini had two measly pieces of chicken and the paninis weren't even on ciabatta bread. While we ate, out waitress didn't come to our table once to see if we needed anything or how our meals were. I am myself a bartender and waitress and usually have some empathy for servers when they are busy but there was no excuse for this!

Went there before a show at Proctor's. There was only 1 waitress for 10 tables, but on a friday night sharing a building with a theatre, it wasn't enough. She was friendly though. The drinks were good but tiny, a margarita was served in a double glass, the burger was a half pound, over cooked and served without mayo, which was on the description: "burger with lettuce tomato and mayo" only mine wasn't. The fries cost an extra $2 with a burger, and there were maybe 15 of them. So for $23 I got a giant overcooked burger, 15 sweet potato fries, slow service, and a 4oz margarita. I should have gotten an $8 meal from Bombers.

We went here before a show at Proctors. It is located inside the same building as Proctors sharing a common indoor walkway with other shops as well as the theatre. Parking was conveniently located around the back for $5 or accross the road in a parking garage for free. We paid $5 for the well lit lot just outside the back entrance. Safe and close! We did not stay at the Inn we just had dinner before the show. Drinks were good, but small for the cost. Dinner choices were a $24.95 buffet that they have every show night 6pm - 8pm or a light fare menu which is really just snacks and a couple salad options. No sandwiches or soups to consider it a meal. We chose the buffet as it included soup, 3 salad choices, 3 meat choices, veggies, potatoes, coffee and dessert. The buffet was ok at best. The stuffed sole was dry and needed a sauce, which we used from the chicken marsala. The service was good, Erin did a great job. You can see the people lining up for the show and can sit at your table until just before showtime. Although, the food wasn't great, the atmosphere and location trump the food so we'll go back for our next show. We may just do snacks next time though.

Bar in this boutique hotel serves light fare menu that is great. On nights when Proctors has a major event they offer a buffet meal.
