Bundled dinner at Mount Vernon with a tour of the home and museum. Nice little bar area in a corner of the restaurant area. Fireplaces in several rooms. Cozy, not too loud. Great place for a dinner date. Good wine selection- some of it from local VA wineries. Food was good, and well-prepared. My steak was a touch tough, but the duck my date got was excellent. Surprised veggies didn’t come with the main dish, but plenty of food in the dish. Overall we had a great dinner, and would go back in a second!

Love the real wood fireplaces alight near the tables keeping the cold winter outside and the warm ambiance inside. Great food, great service, good price, and close to home.

Elsie was a great server! Brussels sprout salad is big enough to share and FABULOUS. Pot pie was good and filling. Rock fish nicely done. Reasonable wine list. Complimentary bread is so white bread bland that it detracts from meal.

This is historic Mt Vernon Inn restaurant. They now play current era music (Taylor Swift, Justin Beiber, etc) throughout the restaurant which completely takes away from any ambiance of the site. The menu is also barely anything close to what it used to be with more classic meals. The entire restaurant has changed for the worse over the years and barely resembles anything about the historic history it should.

I looked up menu online prior to booking and we'd picked out our meal choices prior to arriving. Husband wanted the shrimp and grits... When we arrived restaurant was set up for valentine's day (2/13) and no other menu options were offered. We were eating at this restaurant MT VERNON/GEORGE WASHINGTON for the historical/authentic menu offerings - which we absolutely were unable to receive. There should have been a notice online when I booked about the VALENTINE ONLY menu available. Another couple came in after us and they asked the exact same thing - this is the only menu available??? Disappointing, expensive & inflexible.

Amazing food at very reasonable prices. You are in an colonial style house and all employees are dressed the same.

Food was not as good as in years past. The peanut soup was still outstanding but the pot pie was bland and flavorless. Somewhat disappointed as this was our family outing for the holidays.
