Wife & I went on a Tuesday night and it was about 1/2 full. Interior is understated but pleasant. We ordered an appetizer Filet tips with gorgonzola in a pastry with a Bearnaise sauce - one of the best apps we've had.

I travel often and try to eat at local, non-chain restaurants. Outside Inn was recommended by my business partners and got favorable ratings in Trip Advisor. It was a pleasant surprise in Sierra Vista. The restaurant is on the small size which is okay. Very comfortable. I had the daily special -- a spicy Mahi Mahi. The sauce was spicy... More

My husband and I wanted to try this place, it wasn't bad. The food was good, with the exception of my lobster, it was spoiled. They credited my dinner, otherwise everything was good.

Restaurants come and go in Sierra Vista, but The outside Inn has been a constant for the last 23 years. When we have a special occasion, this is where we head. You can be guaranteed... More

David and Dawn always go the extra mile. For my birthday David prepared my absolute favorite, Beef Wellington, with a pate coating inside the pastry crust. MMMMNNNN... Yumm!

As always, this is one of my favorite places to eat in Sierra Vista. Dawn and Dave Bain are the best hosts, and Dave really knows his wine.

I go here all the time. This is a small, family run restaurant with a cozy atmosphere. The food is decadent and eclectic, the menu is seasonal. The wait staff take the time to know your name and preferences, it makes you feel special. The dessert is to die for, you can never go wrong with Outside Inn, my only... More

This fine restaurant seems appropriate for a much bigger city. I wish we had one like this closer to home. The chef definitely has some special skills.
