Dining at the Colonel Blackinton Inn on the summer patio is like being away at a perfect idyllic paradise. The food is great, the ambiance is spectacular, and the music is so special. We really enjoy the very talented and rich voice of Tony Cerbo on Tuesday evenings.

We sat on the patio to listen to Gaye Barboza. It was a cool evening with a blue sky & moon shining bright. A lovely evening was had with the best waiter Bernard, excellent food, music & ambiance! We enjoyed the Cajun red snapper special & ribeye! Yum!

My wife and I are regular patrons of Blackinton and this was the first time we were disappointed. We both ordered the sirloin. My wife ordered her sirloin medium rare to rare while I ordered mine medium rare. Both arrived over cooked to medium at best. Not even pink. I have a broader tolerance of cooking temperature so we only sent back my wife's sirloin. In retrospect we should have sent both back since the event was a celebration of my birthday but found ourselves eating separately. The server agreed immediately that it was over cooked and was gracious and apologetic. The restaurant did indeed take her entree off the bill. As I said, this was the first time we were ever disappointed. My birthday was on a Monday so I am guessing the Monday chef may not be the executive chef. We will stay away from Monday's.

Server very attentive and knowledgeable, very accommodating when one guest requested modification to a dinner special . Food served hot cooked to order and generous portions. We were not rushed during our meal which allowed us time to enjoy this special time together, the great food and fantastic atmosphere

We have been here many times and the drinks and service were wonderful as always! Sadly I must say I was severely disappointed in the food this time. The special menu was all seafood Which seems a mistake in itself. Only seafood with no non-seafood options...? ultimately I ordered the red snapper which was sub-par for the Colonel. It seemed rubbery and overcooked and was nothing like a high class red snapper should be served. This being mine and my wife's anniversary dinner I cared more that she was happy with her Fra Diavolo and Creme Brule which she said was amazing as always.

We have never been disappointed with this restaurant. The food is excellent... there is not another place nearby that comes close to it. Our server, Olga, was the best. Attentive and efficient. Finished with an after dinner drink at the bar. Friendly!

Took an elderly aunt out to lunch. Reservation was for 1 PM so it was mostly after the noontime rush. She said it was the nicest place she has been in years and while she said initially she would take 1/2 of her meal home she ate the whole thing, including dessert. Service was efficient and unhurried. She can't wait to go back and we always go back 4 or 5 times per year as we live about 40 minutes away.

THE INN IS A COLLECTION OF SMALL ROOMS WITH THREE OR FOUR TABLES PER ROOM. UNFORTUNATELY THE CHOSE TO ASSEMBLE ENOUGH SMALL TABLES TOGETHER IN ONE ROOM TO ACCOMODATE A LARGE PARTY OF TWELVE IN A VERY SMALL SPACE WHICH LEFT ONLY TWO OTHER TABLES IN THE SAME ROOM ;OUR PARTY OF FOUR AND ANOTHER PARTY OF THREE WERE UNLUCKY ENOUGH TO BE SEATED AT THE SMALLER TABLES. THE PARTY OF TWELVE TURNED OUT TO BE CELEBRATING A BIRTHDAY WITH ALL OF THE NOISE CAMERA WORK AND DRINK SERVICE REQUIRED. WE COULD NOT HEAR EACH OTHER ACROSS THE TABLE AND EVEN THOUGH THE FOOD WAS AS GOOD AS ALWAYS AND THE SERVICE DID NOT SUFFER WE COULD NOT ENJOY OUR VISIT. WHEN WE GO TO A HIGH END RESTAURANT OF THIS CALIBER WE EXPECT A MUCH MORE CONSIDERED EFFORT ON THE PART OF MANAGEMENT WHEN THEY ACCEPT A PARTY AS LARGE AS THAT. OUR MOTHERS DAY OUTING WAS NOWHERE NEAR AS ENJOYABLE AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN .

Quaint historical feel - lots of different rooms, comfy chairs and good food. It wasn't terribly busy but the service was soooo slow. A brunch for 4 took like 40 minutes to make and it was just french toast and eggs...nothing elaborate. We ended up being at the restaurant for almost 2 hours - too long for breakfast but the food was good.

We originally made a reservation for three for the Friday night before Mother's Day, then were hoping to add two additional people. I called the restaurant, they suggested the alcove area overlooking the outdoor patio, which was perfect. We truly had a wonderful dinner, celebrating Mother's Day. Thank you.

Impressed from previous dinners at the Colonel Blackinton, I made reservations for a special birthday dinner. The room was very loud from the noise of a large party in our room and then followed up by another smaller party that was even louder. While our meal was very good, we sat down at 6:30 and didn't get our check until 8:30 for a party of two! Very, very slow. Our waitress was friendly and efficient. I'm not sure why it took so long for the food to arrive from the kitchen as it was a Sunday evening and only moderately busy. Based on the reputation and quality of the restaurant, I was surprised that there was no recognition of our special occasion.

This was our second visit to Colonel Blackinton's to celebrate special occasions. The service was excellent, and portions very large. Food was well prepared and very good. Three of us had the pan-seared walnut salmon, and one of us had chicken parmigiana. All portions were very generous.

The atmosphere is elegant but relaxed, and it was very quiet in the back room by the fireplace.

All in all, a very pleasant atmosphere and good food. We're looking forward to visiting when it's warm enough to have a drink outside.

All four meals were very good. The prime rib was a bit fatty but tasted rich and moist. The waitress was attentive and explained the specials clearly. The service was prompt and efficient. The noise level was a tad loud but the rooms are so small it would be difficult to overcome that.
