Our waitress was terrific
Our waitress was terrific and gave us insight into the college we were looking at as she was a graduate.
The Food was deliciouse as I was looking for a nice fish and vegetables and our teen had a perfect chicken dinner
I chose the restaurant because the menu said they used local farms and suppliers
The food was fresh, simple but right on flavorful
Would absolutely recommend. Ambiance was quiet and very comfortable
It was just what we were looking for after several hours driving

Loads of wine bottles priced
Loads of wine bottles priced at $35. The food was excellent. Dessert was lacking anything chocolate the night we were there but the rice pudding was good. Can't wait to go back.

Fine Dining in Amherst?
For those that know Amherst, you will be surprised to know that there is at least one decent, fine dining establishment in town. You would think that the area would boast more, but there are only a couple of places in town that won't disappoint a person wanting a professional sit-down dinner. Good wine and cocktails, very professional staff and a great menu that is well executed. All without relying on disappointing Tapas-style stingy portions! Good things come at a price - and in this case it is a fair one. I have been to the restaurant 5 or 6 times and have left very happy each time. This last occasion was a dinner for a visiting faculty and we had great food over great discussion. We were not rushed and the evening was perfect.

Best appetizer bar ever!
We had a wonderful time! The food was great and the people all around us were friendly. Mom had a great Mother's Day and we all had an enjoyable time. This is now one of my favorite places. LOVE the appetizer bar! Marian Herrick

We went to 30 Boltwood to celebrate a college graduate and graduation. The family has mixed tastes and dietary restrictions and there was not just something for everyone, but choices left untried for everyone. The service was prompt, the server was friendly and helpful, the food was excellent. Between all of us, a small group of 6, we tried several of the main courses, starters, drinks, sides, and desserts. No complaints, lots of mmmmm's. I hope we get a chance to visit again now that our student moves aways from Amherst and may even detour to be able to eat there again when traveling.

We went for our anniversary. The moment the staff found out they brought us champagne - on the house. A lovely touch. The meal was fantastic - delicious beet salad and scallops for the entree. Fresh bread from a great local bakery. We moved on to martinis. The staff was wonderful in helping us to select from their refreshingly eclectic gins. We had never heard of Blue Coat before and although we did not choose it, we were offered a sample and the waiter brought over the bottle to read the description. Staff could not have been more attentive - the food and beverage manager also came over to wish us well. Dessert was most graciously on the house given our celebration. It was a splendid blend of fine, fine food and attention.

A great fine dining experience!
This was our first visit since the renovation. The food was outstanding and the service equally so. Our waiter recommended a wine that accompanied our meal nicely. The corn chowder (soup of the day) was delicious, as were the scallops, chicken and the roasted garlic potatoes. The chocolate mousse was an excellent way to finish the meal… light and smooth. We will definitely return!

New and Much Better
Lord Jeff has never been better. I don't know when they made the changes but they are great.

One of the Tops in this area
Some friends from out of town visited recently and we decided to take them to someplace nice and someplace new for us. We chose the Lord jeff. Overall we were pleasantly surprised. The renovations were extremely well done. We ate dinner out on the porch. The Inn is located in the center of Amherst and on the Amherst College Campus. The dinning area is quite charming and the furniture is unusually comfortable. We enjoyed a very good dinner. The duck and salmone were great and the pork was good (not cooked as requested)
One other thing that stood out for us was the excellent service that we received. Our waiters were pleasant, knowledgeable, and available at all the right times.

Delicious food need more of it
Brought my family to drop off eldest at local
College. Service was cheerful and flexible but very slow. Food was delicious but with the exception of the salad portion sizes were on the small side.

Seven of us, grandchildren and children, dined at Lord Jeffrey Inn for brunch to celebrate going away to school.We were given a lovely alcove which made our dining experience almost a private one. The staff was exceptional (servers and bar tender). The food was beautifully presented and delicious. Two of us were vegan and we were served an outstanding vegan brunch dish with grains and lovely vegetables. We are looking at our calendars to see when we can go dine again. EXCELLENT.

Birthday dinner evening
Celebrated my husband's birthday, and it was a very nice spot. The seasonal menu changes regularly and because I don't eat pork or beef, I had limited items I could select. Thankfully, a scallop special saved the day. $30 for three scallops, three beans, and 4 pieces of cauliflower was not ideal however. My husband ordered the steak which was a much better value and good (he said). My tomato and ricotta starter was delish, and we ordered the cauliflower soup (special), also excellent. The staff treated us to a free dessert for the occasion and the maple cheesecake was excellent. The staff was kind and accommodating, and their recently refreshed interior was excellent and made for an intimate night. Go early for a drink on the nice patio.

One terrific restaurant
The food here is easily among the most creative and well-prepared in the region. The salads were exquisite, the entrees outstanding and the desserts fantastic. Innovative cocktails, a pretty room and excellent service all add to the experience. We were celebrating our anniversary, and the restaurant was gracious enough to offer us a wonderful, complimentary dessert sampler.
The menu changes daily, so fussy eaters might want to check beforehand to see what they are offering that day. But no matter what you order, based on our experience, it will be delicious and you will be pleased. We will definitely return!

Quiet relaxing evening
We went with friends to celebrate mutual birthdays and were pleased with our choice. The menu though limited offered an entree choice or 2 in each category; meat, fish, chicken and vegetarian. The chicken dish was a perfect comfort food for a cool Fall evening and the cauliflower soup was tasty. We thought the mushroom risotto was a bit salty for our taste and to our surprise were told we wouldn't be charged for it on the bill; the sign of a caring restaurant. The atmosphere was relaxing and quiet for dinner. We will return.

Enjoying a dining experience
Enjoying a dining experience with our family is magical when wonderful food, ambiance, attentive service, elbow room and noise level all allow for great conversation and time together. 30 Boltwood at the Lord Jeffrey Inn was the perfect setting for a wonderful evening.

Had a wonderful dinner that featured locally grown produce. The waiter was particularly friendly and helpful. Ate breakfast there the following morning (we were staying at the attached hotel), and had another good meal. The staff is notably efficient and friendly, Highly recommended.

great dining experience
Took my (adult) son for his birthday; wanted a quiet place where we could visit (we don't see each other that often) and enjoy a good dinner. 30 Boltwood did an admirable job on providing what we wanted. The food (steak) was delicious, good portions - enough for him, a bit more than I needed so I took my leftovers home. The atmosphere was perfect for a good visit, and the staff were courteous, attendant, yet left us alone to enjoy each other's company.

The Lord Jeff is all wrapped up in special occasions during the four years of visiting our student at AC. It fills the role very nicely.
