Sunday brunch was even better than pre-pandemic. Especially liked the prime rib and lobster bisque. Everything else was very good too. The deserts could be better though. Overall a well deserved 5 stars.
The food and service was outstanding! Our server Shahiara was outstanding. I highly recommend the Mendenhall Inn.
Turtle Soup is something you need to experience, rest of menu outstanding as well
Service was excellent and it was really nice to see the Mendenhall open again .... but the Brunch Buffet food just seemed to lack the luster that it used to have .
Selection of food at brunch was excellent. Nicely displayed.
Excellent food amazing staff always a excellent experience
Time after time, service, food and ambience, the best.
All aspects of the meal were fantastic--soups, entrees, and of course the bananas foster for dessert! It was unfortunate that they couldn't prepare the dessert table-side, as that is all part of it, but it still tasted amazing. It is a pricey restaurant (2 people, over $100 with no alcohol) but the food is extremely good.
Food was delicious and our waiter was caring and knowledgeable.
The overall dining experience was good.The Food was good with the exception of the soup which was just ok. Our server Andrew was attentive and provided quick response to our request.
Great menu and selection and excellent service. Has the feel of an upscale establishment
We had an early dinner at Mendenhall for my husband's birthday. My husband had the strawberry feta salad and lobster tails. He said the salad was the best he ever had and the lobster was done to perfection. My beet salad and duck were delicious. They gave us a complementary chocolate lava cake with a candle for my husband's birthday. The service was excellent. We will definitely go back.
Enjoyed a lovely, quiet dinner on a slow Wed evening. Service was attentive, if a bit fast paced. We received a complimentary dessert in celebration of our wedding anniversary which was a nice touch.
Went for Sunday brunch. Food & service were excellent.

My husband and I celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary at Mendenhall Inn restaurant last night. It was the perfect dining experience! Our waiter Shahriar was great! He was friendly and attentive and made us feel special. His dining suggestions were spot on. We thoroughly enjoyed the prime rib and crab cake surf and turf. It was the best prime rib I've had. I started with a delightful caesar salad and my husband had the lobster bisque which was delicious too. Our waiter even surprised us with a complimentary lava cake. I highly recommend Mendenhall and look forward to a return visit.

I love the Mendenhall Inn and have eaten here many many times. Unfortunately, the brunch was not up to par. There were not many people there and we had a noon appointment time for 6 persons. The food was probably put out for the 10:00 am seating and left out and not replenished. The eggs benedict and creme brulee french toast were so hard and dry you could not even cut through them.
We just recently had dinner at Mendenhall and very very pleased. The food was excellent and waiter Andy was very attentive to us and our needs. It was an enjoyable evening with our family celebrating my 70 th birthday. The ambiance of Mendenhall has always and continues to be superb. Love to eat here and it is always special.

Food was not worth the price, Scallop and Shrimp dish had 3 small Shrimp and 5 small scallops. Prime Rib did not appear to be 12 oz as menu stated. $ 90 bill not worth the price nobody minds paying for the right meal.
Our dinner was good but not great.
Portions where huge.
Always enjoy Mendenhall- outstanding service from Andy!

We chose this restaurant for a Friday dinner with another couple because of the prime rib featured on the menu. Reservations were readily available and there was no wait when we arrived. The location is a bit off the beaten path and part of a small hotel/conference center. We passed through a large reception area and bar to reach the sizable dining room. It was elegantly decorated with widely spaced tables and comfortable chairs.
Our waiter was attentive and knowledgeable about the menu and wine list. We ordered salads to start and my wife and I requested the prime rib for our entrees. The salad was crisp and dressed well. My prime rib was roasted to perfection and came with potatoes and green beans. For dessert we ordered the bananas foster. All three courses were delicious and as good or better than similar fine dining venues in the Wilmington area.

Excellent food. Expensive but a great place to celebrate a special occasion. Service was a little slow but it was very busy on a Saturday night. We were in no rush and the wait was worth it due to the high quality of the food. Highly recommend it.
Thank you for your review! We are glad you enjoyed your meal with us. We try to stay as competitively priced as we can with rising food costs. We hope you dine with us again in the future!
Jess was our server and she is indeed outstanding. Answered all our questions. Pleasant , gave us helpful suggestions from the menu. She definetly did a super job opening our bottle of wine. It was a great dining time to celebrate with my husband.

We had an excellent evening! We were treating our friends for their birthdays. The quality of food and portions was just as superb as it had been before the pandemic.
The only negative was that there was a slight musty smell, probably because they had been closed up for so long
The restaurant has just reopened after closing during the COVID epidemic. There were very few people dining while we were there. The service and food were excellent.
Thank you for your review Mimi! We are thrilled to hear that you enjoyed your meal with us! We noticed you dined with us on a Wednesday evening. That was actually our fist weekday fully back open in the dining room and were still trying to get the word out! Weekdays were normally just in the Tavern. The full restaurant is now open Wednesday - Saturday (Soon to be Sundays for Brunch and Dinner too!) We hope to see you again!
