My salad was good I had an Asian with cashews. Nicely dressed, crisp and a nice size. My lamb that I was hoping would be nicely baked or broiled came smothered in a gravy and was not medium rare as requested. I ate the green beans they were good but the potatoes were abundant but blah. There was a hint of lemon but basically just white potatoes roasted no deep flavor. Drinks were fine and reasonable in price. We did not have dessert as most were ice cream in a glass in some fashion. This is a nice restaurant but not what it use to be "fine dining". It's more like a Sunday family dinner. My take is get away from the banquet food/ veggies, give some variety, save that for your big wedding parties if they are willing to accept it.

Granted, as management said, a large party was late and arrived about the time we did, but still after waiting and waiting, we had to ask a maintenance man to find our wait staff, two people as it were who were splitting the duties for the table. When we were finished with the main part of the meal, only one of the plates of two diners was removed. The Eggs Benedict were congealed, not runny, the bacon so darkly crisp that it fell apart, the crab cakes just not good. After waiting, we had to ask a passing waiter for coffee and, as he passed, the maitre'd for our delayed check after which, another extended wait, we finally took the payment to the front desk. What a disappointment indeed.

You should remove the table. Remedied. Otherwise good, a little pricey. A 4-5x markup on wines is gross.

The soup, appetizers and salad were good but the dinner took quite a while, was served Luke warm and wasn’t thrilling. The filet was good but the scallops were tiny and disappointing. Overall it was a good night but food quality was not up to its normal level.

My only disappointment was the 20% gratuity that was automatically charged to the bill without any communication to me. We have dined at your establishment several times this year and was not present before. While I was going to tip more than than I just did not like the forethought.

They had an amazing buffet, with so many options to choose from. The quality and taste of the food was great, and there was plenty of options even for picky kids. It was a bit on the pricy side, even for Mother’s Day, but it’s the best brunch we’ve been to in the area. Will be back for sure!

They were 4 of us and everyone enjoyed their meals. The table seemed a bit small for 4 people and noise from the private room off the dining room was loud - is there a door to close off that room ? Our server started out great but then seemed very rushed and frazzled. We had to wait a bit to put in second drink orders and also waited for salad dressing. Overall it was a good experience and we enjoyed our meals.

And since the menu prices are clearly stated when we order we have a general idea of our final cost. However, to charge $4 for a small cup of coffee is one thing, but to charge another $4 to top off a half cup (not stated on the menu) is over stepping. Too bad this small detail left a big sting for us. We frequent Mendenhall many times each year for more than special occasions. Also, we are hosting a large party at their sister restaurant, Concordville Inn, which we now plan to use. at least for the next year, when dining out.

Our reception was at the grand ballroom at the Mendenhall Inn. Dinner was outstanding! We had a great night out and the food was excellent. Prime rib and beef filet were cook to order. The snapper soup is the best I tasted in a long time. Salad and appetizer were tasty plus served with a large portion. Cheesecake was the best. Thanks to Andy our server and the whole Mendenhall Staff for a great dinner celebration!

Came in with a cast on leg and they were so helpful and accommodating. Friendly, upbeat service. Menu has a nice range but you cannot go wrong with the prime rib and my husband always gets the salmon -beautifully prepared. Save room for the Peanut Butter bomb that contains a delicious chocolate mousse!
