My wife and I enjoyed a quite and romantic diner at the Tavern at the Armory on a Monday night. We had a table by the fireplace and our server Kim was great.The menu is higher than most but the quality and taste are worth it. We plan to return next time we want a romantic night out.

We've been coming here for at least 8 years and have often stayed at the Inn. We've always enjoyed the food and ambiance. This year it was terrible. The chowder was yellow thick and favorless goop with no clams at all. Not etible! We were so disapponted. The sliders were terrible as well. The bun fell apart because it was... More

Thank you for bringing your dining experience to our attention. This appears to be an example of overall sloppy service which we do not condone. This will be addressed as it is not the way we want to be perceived. We pride ourselves on great food and service and I am sorry that you only received half of that. More

Crab cakes were especially tasty. Salmon for dinner, also excellent. Dessert was a key lime tart which looked lovely and tasted as good as it looked. Waitress was personable and... More

I had a nicely presented breakfast for $18. It was not awesome but it was fine. The ingredients were high quality, but it seemed a bit pricey for what it was.
