THe Weekapaug inn is back!
We have spent the last 6 years summering in Weekapaug and always hear about the wonderful times spent at the Weekapaug Inn as well as the fantastic service and food. So, we have been anticipating the re-opening of the Inn for quite some time and the Inn lived up to all of our expectations. The service and ambience was fantastic and the food was equally impressive. I would like to see a little larger selection in the future but I am certain adjustments will be made in season. Looking forward towards our next time there.

Reopened Weekapaug Inn Fabulous!
This was our first trip back to The Weekapaug Inn since its several years-long closure and transformation. EVERYTHING in the Inn has been tastefully updated with modern amenities and sophisticated taste without losing its century-old charm. We had both dinner there and, because we were staying at the Inn, breakfast the next morning and both meals far exceeded our expectations. My wife had one of the specials, a monkfish and I had half portion of the most delicate gnocchi with a lamb confit...everything locally sourced. We split a scallop appetizer and strudel desert. Breakfast was similarly excellent with orange juice squeezed only after you order it! The staff was wonderful and both meals were perfect in every way.

We were celebrating our Anniversary, and the Inn helped make the evening perfect. We were seated at a table with an exceptional view of the pond, greeted by name and wished a Happy Anniversary! Our meals were outstanding and service excellent.

Great spot, great service!
From the moment we arrived until we walked out the door we were treated like royalty. The food was superb and the environment perfect for an early spring "summer tease" dinner. Great location.

Ladies' Lunch on Derby Day
We had a wonderful experience, appreciated meeting the General Manager of the Inn, as well as the tour of the gorgeous guest rooms by Grace, who was delightful.
All the staff we encountered were both friendly and anticipative, clearly well trained in providing personalized service.

Weekapaug Inn for dinner
We shared a special dinner with another couple and the very competent waitress picked up on the celebration of two birthdays. We were surprised when our deserts included a birthday message written in chocolate! The restaurant is gorgeous and the view was worth a million dollars. The menu choices are few, but everyone found something to be excited about. The food was creative, delicious, and wonderfully presented. My only complaint is that the portions were small for the money and seemingly sacrificed for the art of the presentation. Not one of us is a big eater and I did not feel full when we left. With the most inexpensive bottle of white wine on the menu, the check, with tip, was nearly $300.

We chose this restaurant to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The entire staff went out of their way to congratulate us and make our evening memorable. We were given a lovely table with a view to the water and a personal note was waiting at our table when we arrived. The server was attentive and knowledgeable. We were allowed to sample our wine before making a choice. The appetizer, a variety of cheeses was delicious . Three different types of dinner rolls were served to us, all of them warm, fresh, and unique. Our entrees included locally grown vegetables, and we sampled items which were new and exciting for us, e.g., fiddleheads and grilled ramps. It was a lovely experience in this beautiful, newly renovated inn on the RI shore.

We met a friend for dinner at the Weekapaug Inn - we were staying there and chose to eat at the restaurant - service was great, our table was terrific w/ a view of the water - it's hard to say what it would be like with a full room of people since it was quiet that night -
our food was very good - local, nicely cooked and presented - we all were happy with our choices -
We would definitely return to the Weekapuag & eat at their restaurant again -
5/22/2013 12:00:00 AM
It took us a while to get to the renewed Weekapaug Inn. Wish we'd come sooner. Very nice on all aspects. We'll be back for sure. Nice to have it in the neighborhood!
5/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
What a gorgeous place. The ambience was elegant , but relaxed. We had a fabulous view of the pond, complete with watching people dig clams.
The food was good to very good. Two of us had the garden burger, which was very bland. However, the other 2 people in the party had more tasty sandwiches. The home-made potato chips were out of this world.
Service was good.

We throughly enjoyed kunch
We throughly enjoyed kunch at Weekapaug Inn. The Inn has been beautifully restored. Loved the architectural features, the Audubon art & painting on the steps, the bay view, & the interior design. Just a gorgeous place. Lunch was excellent. Enjoyed chatting with the wait staff & one of the chefs from the kitchen. Will be back to experience dinner on the outside patio when the weather is good.
6/9/2013 4:00:00 PM
Enjoyed my first lunch here. It was a quiet, rainy day but the views in the rain didn't disappoint. Nice menu, good food, a little pricey but not over the top. Service was pretty good though it always seems the fewer people the less stellar the service seems to be wherever you go. Frozen lemon soufflé over a shortbread cookie was outstanding.
6/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful Food, Staff and Location
The Weekapaug Inn is a truly lovely place with excellent food, attentive and friendly staff, incredible views of the pond and beach and heart stopping prices.
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
The atmosphere and service are very good as were all aspects of our luncheon experience. The décor is lovely with an updated feel of the past. Will definitely return for lunch and dinner and probably a weekend stay.
6/26/2013 4:00:00 PM
This was our fourth meal at The Restaurant at Weekapaug Inn, and it just gets better. We were celebrating my wife's Birthday, and it couldn't have been better. The view was enchanting and the food was spectacular.

Having stayed at the inn for
Having stayed at the inn for a long weekend my husband and I enjoyed a number of meals there. Our dinner at the restaurant was the best meal we have had in a long time. The food was sublime. I am still thinking about the lobster ravioli. Our server was delightful and accomodating. After the first course the hostess came over and asked if we would like to step outside to see Saturn through the telescope. What a treat, that was!
The Thursday night clambake on the lawn felt like something from a bygone era. Lunch, breakfast and Sunday brunch were all delicious, well presented and unhurried.
The Weekapug is one of those special places that stays with you long after you have gone.

Lovely Water View Restaurant
Great food with an emphasis on locally sourced ingredients. Serene and beautiful view of salt pond, quiet and conducive to conversation. Attentive service. You really do not want to leave.

We found the meal & service
We found the meal & service to be impeccable. I had eaten here often as a child when my grandparents stayed at the Inn. I had also had dinner here a few years ago before the renovations & new ownership. The menu was very diverse & everyone in our party of 5 chose different appetizers & entrees. They all proved to be delictable treats,especially the raw-tuna gazpacho. The service was also exemplary with charming touches such as fluffing up the chair pillows when anyone left the table. One trainee, who was assisting our waitress stacked the plates when she cleared them in a large pile which detracted from an
otherwise great experience slightly.
7/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful dinner with friensds. Fantastic views, superb wait staff, delicious and decorative meals, what more can you ask for? The manager was very accomodating for any further stays ath the resort. Spectacular property for an era gone by.

Back to the future
The Restaurant at the Weekapaug Inn is just a lovely romantic spot. It serves farm to table cuisine which is all the rage these days. The food was very good. I had the lobster poached in butter which is just as decadent as it sounds accompanied by summer vegetable succotash and blue corn polenta. It was all beautifully presented and tasted wonderful. There were other intriguing dishes on the menu but some of the accompaniments were not quite as appealing as the local Stonington lobster so I went with that. It is a bit pricey especially for such an out of the way place but it is definitely a place for a special treat.
7/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wonderful in every way
The Restaurant at Weekapaug Inn has it all. Charm, elegance, delicious food and great service. They source many foods locally and they are prepared exquisitely. I definitely recommend
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Weekapaug inn restaurant is world class, reflecting the owners' ongoing commitment to excellence.
7/26/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very personable staff
The staff could not have been more personable. Delicious bread, great "Weekatini" , excellent blueberry crisp!
We will definitely go back with friends.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
The dining room is intimate with great views of the salt pond. The ambience is casual elegance. The complimentary sparkling or still water is lovely. The menu is limited but fresh and local fare is a highlight. 1/2 portions are available as small plates, but the lobster ravioli 1/2 portion was minute. The coffee is a local brand brewed in a french press. All the food was delicious and the desserts are generous.

Surpassed our expectations
What a gem! Nothing like it in the area. Superior food, like the Ocean House, but in a much cozier and more intimate setting. The wait staff is very professional and proficient, but friendly and attentive . Menu a little limited--but very good . The old Weekapaug inn required all men to wear jackets and I noticed quite a few of the guests still did--out of tradition I expect,because jackets no longer required, and the over all effect was one of old world gentility in a newly renovated and modern atmosphere . I loved it!
8/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
We've dined at the Inn almost weekly since the summer began. Each time exceeds the last memory of exceptional food, attentive service and "to-die-for" views. We've recommended to every foodie we know.

Limited menu was a bit disappointin
Limited menu was a bit disappointing, but overall a very nice dining experience.

Great summer lunch
Unique menu serving the freshest seafood. Dined outside for lunch overlooking lovely hotel grounds and large salt water pond. Dined on apps for lunch including fresh calamari, baked oysters, chips and onion dip, lobster roll and lobster fritters with a wonderful aioli. The oysters were so delicious we ordered a second plate of them. A Weekatini martini, Cosmo and lovely bottle of Vouvray wine rounded out the meal. The wait staff ,which was very attentive and knowledgable , added to a truly wonderful dining experience.
Looking forward to returning and having dinner! Highly recommend this wonderful restaurant .

Relaxed fine dining on the shore
Lovely fine-dining in a relaxed setting at the wonderful Weekapaug Inn. DIning room is bit austere but appropriate for the beach colony vibe.
8/7/2013 12:00:00 AM
I would have enjoyed eating
I would have enjoyed eating outside but was told they can't give the fine dining experience outside for dinner.
8/21/2013 12:00:00 AM
One of the best meals!
One of the best meals we had ever had. Requested a nice table for a romantic dinner and were given window seating with a beautiful view of the water. Food was spectacular - lobster ravioli appetizer, bass special, and duck were all fabulous. Ate at the Culinary Institute in northern CA at Christmas and this was every bit as good if not better. Service was attentive but not intrusive. A real treat!
8/23/2013 12:00:00 AM
Weekapaugh inn fabulous
Our dinner was delicious. Service impeccable, setting romantic. The event after dinner was entertaining, intimate and a great way to end a fabulous dining experience. This evening was to celebrate my husbands birthday.

8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fabulous location Great service.
The service at this Relais Chateaux property is above and beyond. Can not say enough if you are just dining or a guest of the property. Fabulous. They do not miss a beat. Highly recommend and the location is bucolic.
Food good menu changes often. Limited choices. Can also dine in the bar area with a more low key menu. All staff well trained and lovely. Would go back often.

My Fiance and I had dinner hear on Thursday evening. We were seated promptly by the window with a beautiful view of the pond. We both ordered drinks and were surprised with a complementary small sampling of tomato corn salad. We shared the oysters, For Entrees we had the duck and the halibut, All were very well executed. As we were waiting for our dessert, the Pot de Crème, we were approached by the hostess. She apologized for the wait we had when we were seated and picked up the tab for our drinks. Upon receiving our check we were also given a box of 2 chocolate truffles. The entire experience exceeded our expectations, we expected good food and good service, what we got was that extra attention to detail that made us feel really special.
9/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Restaurant was nicely
The Restaurant was nicely appointed and the wait staff were attentive, helpful and very freindly. Food and menu reflected a talented kitchen, in its preperation, creativity and taste. We knew this would be expensive (but not overly expensive) going in but we had a wonderful time and were not rushed at all. If you can deal with the menu prices, I highly recommend a vist.

Old Ocean Charm
The food is excellent and well-prepared - modern twists on classic, hearty food. The service is seamless, the atmosphere cozy and refined and the view is stunning.
9/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent if expensive
Ambience and scenery unsurpassed. Evening at sunset was singularly beuatiful. Menu was not extensive but all of the dozen or so items were pleasant and unique. Great place for a romantic evening.
9/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
AMAZING Once again
A superb dining experience. Gourmet appetizers with the freshest seafood. Quail dinner was out of this world. I never had a meal with such unique flavors. The restaurant invited us to observe the Harvest Moon from their deck overlooking the water with complimentary champagne and believe me when I say it was an exceptional view. Fabulous service from everyone that made sure we enjoyed our dinner.

Better than Ocean House
Real food, thoughtfully prepared and presented, without the pretense of OH.

Beautiful Dining Experience
The Weekapaug Inn's Dining area includes an outside terrace; as we were there in mid-October, we did not dine outside; however, our table was near the beautiful fireplace. The wine list was exceptional, mostly half or full bottles; there were very suitable by-the- glass choices, which was not the usual humdrum list. The scallops were perfect, and the roasted vegetables included a nice assortment roasted to perfection.
Breakfast is in the same dining room, and we sat at a table facing the salt marsh pond. Lobster hash with poached eggs and Béarnaise sauce! Unbelievably delicious. All the baked items were freshly made that morning including a marvelously flaky croissant served with home-made preserves.
10/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
A Wonderful Dinner
We really enjoyed out meal at the Inn. The food was creative and prepared perfectly, and the service was superb. We will definitely be back.

My husband and I stayed at the Inn for the weekend..This whole experience was top notch from the moment we got out of the car. The meals we had here were delicious. The wait staff was very attentive to our every need. We will be returning for our 14th wedding anniversary next fall.
11/13/2013 4:00:00 PM
