Our dinner was wonderful, as usual. I ordered the swordfish served over spinach and risotto with mushroom sauce. My husband ordered the seafood and linguini. Both exceeded our expectations.

Had a great dinner at Blooming Grove Inn last night. Celebrated my cousin high school graduation. Food and service were great. Finished the night off with some excellent banana cream pie. Can’t wait to go back for the next occasion.

The food was average at best. We went to the Blooming Grove Inn primarily for the banana cream pie dessert and you can imagine the disappointment when we were informed they had run out when we were ready for it.

Blooming Grove Inn
Responded on June 16, 2021

Your server received wonderful feedback from your party regarding the entrees. “Food was average at best”? We feel that this review was written entirely over the fact that we ran out of our signature dessert. We would very much like to have a discussion and provide some insight on what went on behind the scenes to cause us to run out of something that we always strive to have available. We hate to see someone’s entire experience ruined over a piece of pie. Please return our call ASAP.

Outstanding every single time. The ambience is perfect for a date night but also cocktails with friends Everything is fresh, service is on point and the servers are knowledgeable about the menu, which is a nice change from most restaurants. If you haven't been, go! Get the scallops, salmon, their vodka sauce and anything with their risotto. The meatballs and French onion soup are phenomenal as well!

Made a reservation specifically for an outdoor table. Once we arrived we were told “we don’t accept reservations for outdoor seating... and we have a private event happening outside so no, you can’t sit outside”. Pretty rude.

Blooming Grove Inn
Responded on June 4, 2021

I apologize for the misunderstanding. Knowing that we blocked the outdoor seating option for June 3rd months ago, and because there was nothing in the notes of your reservation indicating outside and because severe thunderstorms were forecasted I was caught off guard and surprised when you said you had an outdoor reservation. I knew that was impossible. I certainly did not intend to be rude and will be contacting you to discuss further as I am limited here to 500 characters.

The outdoor space is wonderful. We all truly enjoyed our meals. I had a reservation and had asked for tables under the tent. There was a blues band playing and it appeared their fans had all come out. That is a wonderful thing but after eating they stayed at the tables to listen to the band. Tables weren’t being turned. That put a strain on the staff and other customers. We watched one group leave. We did wait, eventually got a table under the tent and a great meal. We love the blues but found it odd to hear it at 7:00 pm during dinner.

The weather was beautiful and we were lucky to get seating outside. We enjoyed the musical entertainment of Joe Zook and Billy Holt! They were great! I had the seared scallops which were cooked perfectly. Our party of 6 all agreed that the food was delicious! Cocktails were also yummy! Can’t wait to come back!

We initially went to see our friend Joe Zook perform and we did enjoy him tremendously. However, we also enjoyed the restaurant. The food we ordered, salads and the salmon entree were delicious, all fresh, well prepared and eye-appealing. Service was attentive and friendly, the drinks were good and the setting very picturesque (outdoor dining). Should Joe Zook (or another performer we like such as Jerry Monk or Paul Plumeri be there we will certainly return.

We came here for Mother’s Day after attending a service at a local cemetery. The outdoor setup was phenomenal- super safe and the fire pits kept it warm and looked so pretty. The service is very good and the food was excellent but the menu is definitely rich and heavy. I wish they had a couple lighter options but I guess it worked for the cold, rainy day. We will definitely return when we are in the area.

The Blooming Grove Inn has a very nice, big patio for outdoor dining. On a drizzly evening, we were kept dry by a tent with open sides. We appreciated the fire pits separating the tables. Our food was delicious and the service was friendly.

I thought the menu was extremely limited and disappointing. I have gone to this restaurant numerous times in the past and always loved my meals and thought they had a nice selection.The food we did receive was very good. I told the waitress that it was a birthday and she came out with a piece of cake but no candle.

We have not been here before so tried it as a new place to celebrate a birthday.
All the staff are welcoming, friendly and attentive. The atmosphere relaxed. The food is phenomenal.

We had a 7:00pm reservation and were seated right away in a cosy corner table for 2 it was a Saturday and was continually busy. My partner ordered Cheese Bites (5) followed by Coconut Shrimp (6) and shoestring fries. He was pleased with his choice, although not something he would normally choose, he enjoyed it.
I ordered bacon wrapped Scallops (5) and the Braised Short Ribs which came with mashed and roasted carrots and asparagus and gravy. Both of my courses were exceptional and my partner who had to have a bite of each agreed. He was a little jealous and will order my meal next time we go because there will definitely be a next time!

Definitely recommended - 5/5 Stars!
