Beware of the strawberry soup. It tastes like melted ice cream. It was definitely too heavy to eat before a big meal. The salads were nothing special, the shrimp and grits were overwhelmed by the barbeque sauce they were drenched in. We should have dropped in for coffee and the bread pudding even though I drank all my coffee long before the dessert came. The waitress didn't offer a refill until we had already paid. We were underwhelmed at breakfast, too. It was nothing special....especially for the price.

This restaurant uniquely combines simplicity and sophistication. We had two very nice breakfasts and diner with fried oysters, seafood gumbo, pheasant/mushroom soup, crab cakes and lamb rack. The food was excellent! Bravo chef!!!!

All of our dishes were very well prepared and tasty; the selection was surprising broad for the size of the restaurant.

Everything was delightful. Only issue was shower water didn't get hot-- hot water from sink, but not shower; not sure if this was just a one-time issue or a regular problem. But the champagne and chocolates in the room, the lovely antiques, the breakfast and all the small touches that made us fee so welcome made it memorable and special. We hope to go back, and I would be very happy to recommend the Inn to my friends and family.
