We were sat in library room by the fireplace. They seemed short staffed. We waited awhile to place drink and food orders. Seemed like our are was deserted by the wait staff. They did give us champagne for our anniversary which was nice. The food was all excellent.

Outdoor dining was very well done. Beautiful tent and spaced seating. We felt very comfortable during this crazy times. The food was outstanding. The Asian salmon burger was delicious as always and the Calamari New England Style has a nice twist and delicious balsamic drizzle. This place never fails to deliver great food and excellent cocktails. ( yummy dirty martini with blue cheese olives)

Enjoyed a wonderful Easter brunch. Lived in nearby Paramus for years and finally went for holiday brunch. Was definitely a nice place we will visit again. Food and service was amazing. Service was a good balance of making sure we were ok but not overly intrusive. Wonderful atmosphere with the various small rooms for dining rooms.

Easter Brunch was a flop! Ordered the deviled eggs, they were still icy when served! I ordered Eggs Benedict on a biscuit. The biscuit was the size of a silver dollar. The eggs were well cooked and the “Taylor ham” was extremely thinly sliced, the size altogether about the same as 2 thumbnails put together. My daughter’s salad was ok.
We tried dessert- chocolate lava cake. Unfortunately tasted like boxed cake... we also got 2 mimosas. There were ZERO bubbles. Really poor food in a once great place. It was poor immediately prior to quarantine as well, but thought it was a fluke. I guess not!

We had a relaxing comfortable dinner in the bar area accompanied by a warm fireplace. Our waiter was skilled at his work and a polite young man. Appetizers were good. Warm pretzel with cheese and hot! Mustard dips. Buffalo wings. We had pasta dish and burgers. NY cheesecake was outstanding. A wonderful local restaurant in an historic inn.

Great menu and specials. Food is always delicious. Attentive and friendly service. All precautions for COVID are in places- tables spaced out in large heated tent, servers wearing masks and gloves- felt very safe there.
Prices are a little high but it’s a great local place and always a good experience.

As always, the food and service were great. The servers are very attentive while not rushing, and everything we ordered was delicious. The precautions in place regarding COVID-19 make for very comfortable dining. The tents are large, well heated and tables very well spaced. They take everyone’s temperature, everyone is masked (until seated at the table, and menus are paperless through QR codes. I felt very comfortable dining outdoors there.
