Excellent dining experience. We were celebrating our anniversary and the food & service were wonderful. Great lunch menu.
Excellent food with great ambiance. We enjoyed the salmon and the crab cakes.
We try to eat here on each visit to Mount Vernon. The restaurant continues your journey back into history while seeing the world George Washington lived in. Visiting at Christmas is especially nice because you have the opportunity to see the restaurant decorated for the holidays. If you are able to plan ahead I recommend making a reservation to ensure you are able to secure a table.
Mount Vernon Inn is a great restaurant. Cozy atmosphere, great servers, and menu selection is fantastic. Not too pricey. Highly recommended.
Loved it, as always!
First, arrived early. No offer to be seated early so went to the bar. Happy hour foods filled us up. Very good.
Our Server, George, was absolutely outstanding! My son and I had a REALLY delicious lunch (turkey pot pie and Jambalaya). The atmosphere was very charming and cozy. So glad we found this gem! And thank you George for helping make our visit to Mount Vernon so memorable!
Ambiance, food and staff were superb!
Ordered he 7 oz. filet with mashed potatoes and asparagus. Steak was medium as requested with a beautiful crust.
Very disappointed in this visit to Mt. Vernon. Meal took forever to be served. Food was not that great for the price. Mt. Vernon has definitely declined in selections of food and the quality of the food. I would probably select another place to eat with guests the next time around. Sorry!
The Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant is a lovely setting and right on the Mount Vernon Estate. The Restaurant is connected to the Mount Vernon Education Center. The menu is full of comfort foods. At the suggestion of our server, we had the Hot Apple Cider, which was yummy and hot on a cold wet afternoon.
I had the Turkey Pie, which was too large a portion. Two of us should have split the entree so as not to waste food.
My companion, who was not feeling well, had the Cornbread Skillet and my Side Salad. Though tasty, the cornbread (with real corn kernels) was large for an appetizer portion.
We had a reservation so we were seated immediately. However, the dining room was not full and a reservation may have not been necessary. The dining room was quiet and the server attentive, almost motherly questioning my lunch companion whether she was not satisfied with the cornbread since she was not finishing it.
I'd return to the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant but with foreknowledge to share the entrees.
Food was excellent--some of the best I've every had at a restaurant. Service was quick and very discrete. Atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. A very enjoyable place, recommended as a prelude to a tour of Mt. Vernon.
Our first visit but not our last! The specialty drinks (Eggnog Martini and Hot Apple Cider with a Caramel Liqueur) were the perfect start to an outstanding meal. We each chose the filet and both were perfectly cooked. All of the food was seasoned well but our mashed potatoes were not even warm. Our waiter was the most attentive and polite server we have encountered in a long time. The entire meal was a perfect appetizer for the candlelight tour of Mount Vernon. We will have already recommended the restaurant to friends.
The food was disappointing. Everything we ordered was very spicy- including crab cakes! The menu selection was quite small, and the peanut chestnut soup just tasted like liquified peanut butter- we didn’t taste chestnuts.
The house wine was so poor- we sent it back. So although I love the ambiance- the food is not worth returning.
The food and ambiance was amazing. Our server was incredible. I had veggie risotto and of course the peanut soup. Two friends had the fort and soul, the other friend and my husband had salmon and soup. Everyone was thrilled. My husband commented when check came that we had paid more a burger joint we had gone to recently in DC. Enjoyed the restaurant more so than the Illumonation.. I have always loved the Inn at Mt. Vernon. We will be back in spring
The service was so rushed we couldn’t enjoy our meal. Our salads and appetizers arrived at the same time. Then before we even had a chance to finish those our entrees arrived. Meanwhile the waitress took our bottle of water and didn’t return for 15 minutes. When she finally did she seemed bothered that we asked for more water. Lastly not two minutes after receiving our desserts the waitress brought the check.
Food and wine were wonderful. I was so impressed with everything. Highly recommend
Advertised the staff would be dressed in colonial attire.
The staff was not! Very disappointed!!
There were a few characters that did come through.
We were looking for a restaurant to celebrate a special event in the Quantico, VA region. This was about a 30 minute drive and the atmosphere was welcoming. The food was tasty with good variety. The price was reasonable and the service was extraordinary. I highly recommend this restaurant.
The food was amazing and our waitress did such a great job!
Our go to spot for birthdays, anniversary, and other special days. Always enjoyable and consistently very good!
When we arrived, we told the reservation I made was for the next day. This was not true, I checked. We were seated anyway. I thought that the online info was disjointed. Info told me I needed to wait 2.5 hours for a 12 pm reservation so I changed it tov 12:15 and was able to make the reservation.
Great food and a very unique menu. Enjoyed the turkey pot pie and a great beverage. Recommend reservations.
Food was great. Our waiter didn’t come back to check on us till we were done eating & we were out of water for some time.
If you are making the trip to Mt Vernon then this is a lovely spot to stop and eat
The hostesses are not kid friendly. They acted like it was a inconvenience that children were eating in the restaurant. Our waiter was great. Food pretty good.
Food was excellent, service was even better. Eating in such a historic place was ver th special. Unsure how accessible it is, as there are multiple 2-3steps throughout. Gift shop closes at 5pm, so go early if you want to browse gift shop.
Not a tourist trap
Mt Vernon Inn has changed a lot of the years and I really don;t care for it as much as I use to. It was very quaint but now seems to be more of a corporate restaurant. Has lost it's colonial feeling to me. Hostesses this time were very nice but I have been there in the past and there have been some very rude ladies at the desk. Always appearing impatient with the customers. I will continue to go back occasionally but no where near the times that my husband and I and family had dined n the past.
Good value, historic location!
Loved our whole experience, except for some really loud people at the bar. On a Saturday night I realize this can’t be helped but they were the only negative to the experience.
The Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant has been our most favorite for many years -- whether it be for a special celebration like a birthday or anniversary or for getting together with friends you have not seen in a while, as was our case this past Saturday. The menu selection is excellent. I especially like enjoy the fresh seafood entrée. The only "complaint" was that we had to request bread; in the past, the restaurant served fresh made rolls and bread as part of the meal. Service also was excellent.
The Mt. Vernon Inn is a regular stop for us when we are near the DC area. A wonderful restaurant, fabulous food, service and historic ambiance. Top ratings!
A great experience in a unique atmosphere! House chips were really good, Washington’s burger was good, Portobello sandwich good but was not a big portobello like I thought it would be. Brussel sprouts were delicious but I could have made a whole meal off of them they were so big! All the side dishes were really big!
Ambiance was nice. Food was good and so was drink. Wish we would have had bread with our meal. Server was good conversationalist and able to answer questions about the Inn.
Always enjoy having dinner here . Dining so close to such a historic site is very special.
We have chosen to eat here every time we have visited Mount Vernon and have enjoyed every meal.
Love the place a little disappointed that the portions have slowly decreased over the past couple of years
This was the perfect setting for lunch after our morning at Mount Vernon. The food was outstanding and the ambiance was fitting, We would have missed a lot had we not chosen this restaurant.
Salad was drenched, grits were hard & tasteless, excessive use of garlic - awful dinner in other words...
