We visit The Blue Bird Inn often and have always found the food very good.....never a bad meal, however I love their baked tomato bisque. It is a meal in itself. Service is always good and they have a large room with bar which can...More

We made reservations for 1:00 on a Sunday for my dad's 87th birthday. My brother had eaten here before and a coworker also recommended it. We were seated right away in a quiet back area with a few other tables which was perfect. I ordered...More

Food is average. Very good beer selections. Very slow service. Took too much time to take our order and just as long to get our checks

Had lunch here after visiting the Cornwall Furnace. Wide variety of local style foods at fair prices and in a restaurant that dates from 1859.

Visited with Carnivore friends for a Birthday Celebration, so the Vegan Choice (minus dairy based sauce) was Falafel Gyro. The portioning was great, but the falafel balls were very dry and sort of tasteless inside the gyro shell.

We went here during a weekday for lunch and had a very nice experience. The food was great. Good ambiance. Can be a little pricey. I got the half sandwich and soup of the day special and it was very good and very reasonably priced.
