Charming, comfortable, friendly service, good food if not terribly original. Quiet even in the bar (early on a Sat evening). Just came for a light bite and this was just the right place. Not too casual, not formal. Service was not rushed. I will be back!

The Montville Inn is a great restaurant. I've eaten dinner there three times and have enjoyed each meal. The servers were friendly and accommodating and the food was delicious.

I've been going to the Montville Inn since it was restored several years ago. The dining room and bar area are great for private dining or just watching a game. The food has always been good, and sometimes great. Bottom line is - it is pretty consistent. Service has always been good and remains to this day.

Had an OK dinner and drinks. Service was good. If we were closer I can see re-visting but since a bit of drive for us I doubt we will return. We were seated right near the entrance so I left with the feeling we didn't get a feel for the place at all. Next time will asked to be seated... More

My husband and I came to the Montville Inn for our anniversary dinner. Everything from the time we pulled up to valet park to the time we left was done perfectly: drinks - lemon meringue martini, fresh bread, calamari two ways, chicken Milanese, shrimp scampi, warm white chocolate bread pudding; all of it was amazing as was the attentive service....

Was very disappointed at the Inn since last visit. Been awhile and the menu is a disaster - all over the place. From subs to Chinese to Mexican. In addition to a menu that tries to appeal to all and appeals to none, it took a long time to get our food... so when we finally got it, it was... More

My wife and I went to the Montville Inn September 7th, late afternoon, we pretty much had the place to ourselves except for a group of people at a corner table. Our waitress took our order and was very knowledgable and pleasant. While we waited, we noticed that the folks at the corner table were very obnoxious and loud, and... More

I met some friends here for a lunch recently. It was a quiet afternoon and not many people were there. I have passed by in the evening and the place is usually crowded. From the minute I stepped in I was welcomed by the hostess and then the wait person. There is a lovely porch upon which you can dine... More
