We had a great experience. It is a little prcy but worth every penny! Good service, beautiful location. Felt like a little getaway from the hustle and bustle.

The restaurant is nice and outdoors. Our only complaint is that they play rock and roll loudly all evening. While I do enjoy rock and roll music, it’s a bit much while dining out for dinner.
Our waitress Tammy was wonderful!

There were a few bumps with the meal, but the atmosphere was lovely, with hummingbirds flitting around the trees surrounding the expansive, comfortable patio. Our favorite item was a special--shrimp with forbidden rice and lemon cream.

Excellent food and service, but pricey. Bummed that you no longer waive the corkage fee for local wineries anymore, just those that you have on the wine list.

The view was excellent and so was the ambience. Felt very safe with all the C19 protocols in place. We will be back for special occasions and possibly brunch.

Surprisingly so fabulous. The braised beef was so tender and delicious. For breakfast, the carnitas hash was crazy good. Lots of tender meat and everything flavored to perfection. The crab Benedict uses real crab. Nothing artificial there.

It was a wonderful way to start our 53rd Anniversary. We had a delicious breakfast. Blueberry pancakes and eggs Benedict. Both some of the best we've had. Our server was cheerful and very attentive to all our needs. We were even presented with a special treat at the end.

Cork Fire was a great place to go for my anniversary. Outdoor patio was nice and well spaced out, food was amazing and service was perfect. We haven't been out much since quarantine so this was a great night out.

Honestly - I just didn’t think the food was that good. The duck was fine. It had weird pairing. The fish and chips was a little greasy. The chicken wings was good.

The food selection was fantastic. Fresh, fun combinations of foods. Brunch with bottomless mimosas is available! The apps are sizeable and wonderful for sharing. Breakfast was just as delicious - but I took much of it home because I was so full from the apps! Great drinks... great ambience... even greater service. Wonderful place. I'm going back again next weekend!

Just bad service. Waitress had many tables with large parties. We had people seated after us then they where served and gone before we even got drink orders. 2 hours for dinner is a little much especially when I thought this would be a special place to celebrate my nephews 21st birthday with a nice meal. They didn’t even acknowledge we were celebrating a special occasion. I was disappointed. But never rude to anyone. We spent $300 for nothing special at all. Super disappointing.

It’s almost like someone gave up in the kitchen. The Mac and cheese dish was delish and was presented nicely. The cheese plate that was $20 look like my 1st grader put it together. The jam tasted like smuckers you didn’t even try!!! The two desserts the churro was a give up and such a flop could be so much better. The cobbler looked like you took the time to make it and present it. Delicious! We won’t be going back. Way too pricey for what we got

We love the Inn and restaurant and have stayed there many times and look forward to staying many more!!!
One suggestion only we would make...as outstanding as the dinner menu is, I used to order Grilled or sauteed Salmon, with mashed potatoes and asparagus!! Very simple and delicious! I would prefer some simple items such as those on the menu in addition to the ones with all the sauces and added ingredients...

My wife has had many Saturday meetings at the Inn. When we planned to get together with friends who moved to Banning, your restaurant seemed to be the halfway point. We are so glad we came back to enjoy your restaurant. The decor was homey, the view was great, our waitress was excellent and the food was marvelous. Kudos all around.

Highly recommended and they have golf!
