I was part of a group of six that had lunch here earlier today. All in all, a very good choice! We were seated very quickly and Elizabeth, our server, promptly took our order. I ordered the lamb burger and was very satisfied by the quality and size of the sandwich. Everyone else at the table was happy with their... More

This restaurant is adjacent to the Mount Vernon Estate. We had heard rave reviews so waited 45 min. To be seated. Well worth the wait! No reservations taken on the weekend, weekdays only. The grits were the best we've ever had (& hubby has lived in the South). Everything else was delicious & portion were generous. I highly recommend!

On our recent trip to Mt. Vernon, we passed by the 'food court' option(s) and had a great lunch at the Mt. Vernon Inn there at the visitor's center. We were really expecting it to be 'ok' at best, but found it to be excellent, in every way. It was good to get away from the crowds, and have excellent... More

Myself and two friends had our Easter meal at the Inn. We started with drinks at the bar which were well made. The bar staff were extremely pleasant and friendly despite working all day on a holiday. Our table was booked for 4:30 and we were seated in the main dining room. The buffet was substantial but not overwhelming. Salads... More

The restaurant is very beautiful and the food was wonderful! Of course we got the only area of the restaurant the wasn't wheelchair accessible and my son is in a wheelchair. The staff was very pleasant and willing to do whatever they could make him comfortable.

The peanut soup was quite good, but not a 5. The chopped peanuts and water chestnuts were not atop of the soup but incorporated, so the aesthetics were not there. We all had salads - two Cobbs and one wedge. Very nice. My husband and I split one Cobb, and there was a leftover container which I am finished tonight.... More

At the last minute we decided to stop at Mount Vernon Inn to have dinner. It was a great way to end the day. We enjoyed the food and the Inn. When I first came to the area in 2001, Mount Vernon and the Inn was one of the first places I visited. Coming back reminded me of how rich... More

We took out grandsons ages 3 & 5 there to eat while we were visiting Mount Vernon. I had viewed the menu online and was excited with what they had to offer. My husband had the Colonial Turkey Pye and I had Bacon-Wrapped Meatloaf, we ordered Homemade Macaroni & Cheese for the boys to share and that was perfect!! Turkey... More

We were visiting George Washington's Mount Vernon, and as a matter of convenience, decided to have lunch at the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant. Being we were at a restaurant located at a historical tourist attraction we didn't much. We were wrong. The atmosphere, service and especially the food made it the best dining decision we'd made that day. We started... More
