Outside seating is very pleasant. Service was attentive, friendly and timely. Food was so so. Prior dining experience was much better from a food perspective. Will give it another try and hope the meal was an exception.

I have been there twice in the past 2 months and each experience was wonderful. The staff is personable and helpful. The food is delicious...great combinations and wonderful side dishes. And best of all, the menu was different both times which makes every dining experience unique.

Food was terrible. Ordered flank steak medium. Got a murdered steak with black potatoes. I couldn’t tell the difference between the black steak and the black potatoes. My bad for not sending it back for what I paid! But I skipped lunch and was starving. The server said she would tell the kitchen. No one came out and looked at my meal or gave me a discount for a plate of charcoal. First and last time there! With dessert and tea and tip $55.00 for that atrocity!

Food was just okay. We were three people and they brought out three pieces of tasteless bread, which we tried one piece. Food was not bad but nothing special. We had several items, stuffed portobello, pot stickers, Brussels sprouts, Caesar salad with chicken. The best item was the pot stickers. Chicken on salad dry and tasteless, probably cooked earlier in the day. Actually dipped the chicken in the potsticker soy sauce to give it some flavor. Was disappointed.

John I appreciate your feedback but may I ask why you didn't mention any of this while still at the restaurant? Your server informs me that good feedback was given when she asked about the food. Anything unsatisfactory would have been taken off the bill and replaced with something delicious had we received this feedback at the proper time. Please consider contacting me at 609-882-1150 so we may discuss a resolution. -Steve

Plenty of options on the menu. We tried a variety of apps including the brussels sprouts, scallops and shrimp cocktail. Entrees were delicious- ahi tuna with wasabi mashed potatoes, chicken aglio, carmelized scallops and shortribs. Even went ahead and ordered dessert! Not only was the food great, but the atmosphere was inviting. Outdoor patio looked like fun, but with a humid day we chose to sit inside. We'll definitely be going back!

Two girlfriends and I had such a wonderful dining experience last evening. The outdoor area is very attractive and has such a great ambiance, so we chose an outdoor table. The servers were very efficient, accommodating and personable. We spent 5 hours at our table ordering course-after-course of great dishes and wonderful drinks. The Pineapple Mango Sangrias were superb. The Coconut Shrimp and fries were excellent, as was the spring rolls, Caprese salad, and the chicken teriyaki potstickers. Inside there was a guitar player. Had the weather not been so gorgegous, we would have enjoyed sitting inside listening to the music. So it was a lovely evening all the way around!

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.
