I was planning on going to a little place for Thanksgiving dinner near my home, with my youngest son home for a quick visit he looked at where I had chosen and said, "Aah, NO!" After searching around the web on the old iPad he stated he found the perfect place. The Accomac Inn, brother he was not kidding!
The drive was about 1 hour from home and traffic on T-day was no issue. Once off US Route 30 the road is a twisty old two lane that quickly turns into a cool short trip all of its own. At one point one finds the signs pointing this way to the Accomac. After a final right turn, it is down a steep, twisty small road with small jutting rock cliffs towards the river. Hard to believe your still in south central PA.
Parking is on the left of the still smaller road, there are houses nearby and my son commented this seems like a private driveway. The old stone inn is beautiful. There just is something about a big river and an old stone house/inn.
One walks up the stairs, just a few, a ramp for those physically challenged or using a wheel chair is available as well and onto the long screened in porch. I definitely plan to visit during the summer. Entering the Inn you are greeted by the host/hostess and immediately you feel welcome. We Arrived 45 minutes early and went to the small bar off the left of the foyer.
We were greeted by Heath at a small, what I can only assume is Oak and Mahogany bar, Gorgeous. Heath is very talented at his craft and knows his mixology, more importantly absolutely a gentleman and smiling! Wow, I forgot what it was like to have wait staff smile.
About thirty minutes and a few adult beverages later with our stomaches growling, the again SMILING friendly hostess advised us our table was ready and escorted us to the second floor over the porch and a great view of the Susquehanna.
The restaurant at this point was busy but the service was perfect. After adjusting to our table a young man provided water and took out drink order. Shortly later our waitress Chaplin chimed in, another cheery smile and warmth. She answered all of our question, knew the menu inside and out and the menu was quite extensive, not the regular menu but the Thanksgiving Day menu. We chose a small sampler plate called the Terrine of Game, duck, pheasant, rabbit as well as pork belly and scallops. Main course, Mark had the Stuffed Flounder with crap meat and it was superb. I had the Lamb with small sweet potatoes and tiny brussell sprouts, Incredible, and I do not like sprouts. Dessert was apple cider/pie ice cream and a small pecan tart with ice cream with espresso.
Anyway, we had a great time and definitely were thankful for the great food but I think the expressions and what appears to be geniune concern to make your visit perfect is what I was most thankful for. Yes, I dropped 215.00 bucks for two hungry guys but in my humble opinion it was worth every dime.
I do not see how you can not have a great experience at my new found favorite restaurant!
