We went for our monthly girls night dining out and picked Yantic River Inn. I thought it was good, although apparently some in the group didn't like what they ordered. I ordered the turkey dinner, turkey was moist and stuffing was very good. Also came with salad bar. I was surprised that they allowed salad bar as a side substitute... More

Went to a dinner theater performance here. The performance was very good. But the buffet provided was marginal at best- nothing special, pretty bland and not as advertised (substituted roasted potatoes for pasta which many were disappointed in). I commend the new owners for really cleaning the place up. The bar area looks really good. But the quality of the... More

The salad bar was limited,... More

They also let us order off the "Early Bird Menu" which had a lot of choices for $11.95, all included the salad bar. The service was very good for our party of 12.... More

I have had taco salad ($10) here before and it was delicious. Last night it was terrible. The meat (and little of it) tasted like fried hamburger with no seasoning; thus the whole salad had no flavor. And there was not even a trace of shredded cheese.... seriously, on a TACO!!! Ordered French onion soup ($7). It was basically broth... More

I had eggs for breakfast with shells and they weren't bothered that they were on my plate, When I asked for another plate, they said I'd have to be charged.
