I have eaten her several times and the food has always been great. The service, however, is not so greatt. I have had reservations to go unrecorded twice, and a 4 course meal served in the wrong order.

We attended an alumni event that started with a Friday evening meet and greet session and a gourmet dinner in the dining section which comfortably seats 50, or so. The dinner was superb. There is a beautiful, large, outbuilding where the Saturday night affair was conducted. It had plenty of room to seat us all with room for a small... More

Sandra is a wonderful host and the included breakfast choices were fabulous. Fresh fruit , fresh bread, scrambled eggs with smoked salmon ,creme fresh and caviar drizzled with ruffle oil was to die for.

To celebrate our anniversary we decided to go somewhere that was not one of our usual haunts. Inn & Garden was close and we had heard good things. We both ordered the lamb chops as this was not the type place we would order steak, and we do not order chicken when we go out, nor crab cakes. Portions were... More

My wife and I went there for the immaculate B&B, but we found the attached cafe to be a real gem. We had fresh salmon for dinner and a B&B breakfast (from a menu) the next morning. Both were superb. The owner, Sandra, was a lovely person who we observed treating all her café guests like family.

Six of us had Sunday Brunch at the Inn. The food was fresh and delicious! Plus, we had a fun time! Part of the fun was that they were short staffed that morning so we pitched in to help and they were cool enough to let us do that!

Ate one evening meal while staying at the Inn. Food was outstanding. Only negative might be that the dining room is a bit noisy when a larger group is talking.

It was a holiday weekend and we had not made a dinner reservation but a local advised us to try here since it was "out of town." It isn't downtown but within walking distance. The woman who greeted us, seated us & tended bar was very nice. The waitress Courtney seemed a bit nervous and inexperienced but she will be... More

We stayed two nights at The Inn & Garden and breakfast was included. It was a full breakfast with fresh fruit and home baked sweets and then a full course on top of that. The egg dishes were fabulous, the French Toast was exceptional. We weren't hungry until dinner after this extravagat fare.
