We went to the Wilton House for our anniversary. The service and settings were great. We had a great quail appetizer, followed by filet mignon main course. Fun and neat presentations, great cuts of meat, accompanying veggies great too! We were really appreciative of out desserts having "Happy Anniversary" written on the plate in chocolate syrup. The server was attentive and accommodated our needs expertly. We had a nice table with a view of main street! We will be back!

We go for Sunday brunch whenever we need a pick-me-up and the Joshua Wilton House never fails to deliver. The front-of-house staff couldn't be more welcoming and attentive, the wait staff are consistently outstanding and the food exquisite. Thank you for treating us as friends coming to your home to share a meal.

Absolutely wonderful evening of good food, good wine and good friends. Service was top notch. We had cocktails before dinner and the bartender, Ben, is phenomenal. We will continue to stay at the inn and dine at Joshua Wilton House whenever we come back to visit our Alma mater, JMU. Go Dukes!

We celebrated the 1st anniversary of our little boy, and couldn't find a better place for family dinner.

Everything - a cozy and warm ambience (including real fire place), excellent service provided by Jake, and of course a delicious food - was great, and deserts were just outstanding.

we will definitely do our best to return.

This was my first time dining at the Joshua Wilton House. I had heard great things about it over the years and they certainly did not disappoint! The atmosphere and jazz music was very relaxing. Our waiter, Jake, was very friendly and cheerful; displaying attentiveness without being intrusive. He was also very knowledgeable about the offerings as he described them. The food was superb. The a la carte pricing was perfect because, instead of being restricted to a strict multi-course meal, it was possible to enjoy multiple appetizer and entree offerings for a wide range of taste experiences. Lastly, it was nice to be able to eat and talk at our leisure without feeling like we were on the clock. From start to finish, the experience was top rate. A perfect way to celebrate the holiday season. Highly recommended.

Very poor service. For a "fine dining" restaurant, they have missed this crucial component to the dining experience. We will not be back.

What a great Sunday Brunch! I went for a birthday and had such a wonderful time! Our waitress was wonderful and extremely helpful as there were dietary restrictions for one of us. The restaurant is so quaint and was definitely worth the trip!
