We did not stay at the B&B but drove 25 miles on Saturday night to have dinner there on a strong recommendation On arrival we were pleased to see beautifully maintained grounds and a classic 19th century inn that is very well maintained. On to dinner. Was it the best dinner I've very had? No. Was it in the top 10 ever? Considering the whole dining experience (food, service, ambiance price) most certainly... yes. We were seated promptly and from the beginning started noticing the little things: the cloth napkins folded fan shaped in the wine glasses, classic cutlery, etc. They only have about eight entree selections on there menu.....lamb, beef, seafood, chicken were all among the choices and one of the somewhat unique things they do is to standardize the side dishes. In other words the menu said all entrees came with "potato, vegetable, salad and soup" and there were no choice there which I suspect is done to simplify matters in the kitchen. Everyone got a spinach crab bisque that was hands down the best crab bisque I've ever had. The salad was fresh cold and served on chilled plates. Rolls were homemade and had just come out of the oven. One choice only on the potato (smashed) and veggie (al dente asparagus spears). My crab cakes were excellent, others at the table had a rib eye and seared scallops and were very happy with them. Service, well above standard. Price, much less than I would have expected. Two entrees, a beefeater martini and a bottle of chardonnay for $69? Really? I wish we live closer because we'd be back a lot more often
