So this is on the first floor of the Inn. You can hit the bar, there are a couple dining areas, the staff was very nice, good stiff drinks, and everything I ate was quite good. I hope to go back next year!

The blackened chicken Alfredo was disappointingly bland. Not terrible, but nothing special either. Caesar salad to start was the best part of the meal. We were seated next to a large family with a very loud unruly child, and the decor is such that noise...More
