    The Greystone is always a “days gone by experience “. Bucolic historic property. Warm attentive service. Fabulous food. We started our evening at the mansion with a cocktail in front of the library fire. This is like having your own English lakeside manor with a waitstaff. We then continued to the beautiful dining room. Another fireplace. Another equally stunning lakeside view. This particular night a full moon cast it’s winter glow on the glassy lake. I opted for another Leaf Looker cocktail, my husband had an Italian Amarone, and between the two of us , we enjoyed a fresh green salad with local pears, shrimp and grits, (best I’ve EVER had) and Asian styled salmon. Our server even produced gluten free rolls for me! The menu- just like everything else about the Greystone, embraces the classic while giving a nod to the contemporary. I love this place.

    The hamburger with fries came out hot. Nicer sized meat than other smashed burgers I’ve had. Shoe string fries are not my favorite, but they tasted good. Chicken was quite small on chicken sandwich although tasted good. Wonderful window seat with a great view of the lake.

    Have had thanksgiving dinner @ Greystone for the past few years. Cost per person was high however not unexpected for a holiday meal. The ambience, as always, was spectacular. Limited entree with 3 choices, also expected. When we arrived we ordered a bottle of wine. Wine menu indicated 2019 vintage. Server brought us 2021. We pointed this out and she went in search of another. When that was resolved she asked us if we were ready to order. We weren’t. We hadnt even opened the bottle. We asked for bread….sorry no bread…ok, so we just sat and enjoyed our glass of wine. When the server came back and took our order this included dessert. Our dessert of choice was also “ unavailable”. During the meal we did notice this dessert was still being served to other guest. We went in search of another server who helped us with our dessert of choice. Food was great, ambience great, service not what I would expect from the Greystone. We were there for an enjoyable thanksgiving respite with great wine. Instead we felt rushed with a take it or leave it attitude. Very disappointing.

    Choice of 2 main courses for Thanksgiving I had to send back the pork chop. Horrible cut of meat and tough. Worst chop I ever had. View of lake was the only saving Grace. Flan desert was excellent. Chocolate and cherries tasted like powdered box pudding. We were rushed the entire time with no time between courses.

    We had a family brunch here Sunday. It took 1:25 minutes to get our food and the place was almost empty, I had a grilled chicken sandwich and my wife had a salad with grilled chicken. The chicken was so tough I could not even cut it with a knife and it was not edible. A really terrible experience. The F&B manager needs to wake up.

    A lunch stop on a picturesque Fall drive, Greystone Inn was a destination unto itself. Right on the lake, views can’t be beat. Ambience through the roof! We arrived just at opening time to an empty but perfectly set fine-dining restaurant. Cocktail/beer/wine menu and (brief) main menu were delivered as we sat. A Guinness and a Pumpkin Martini while we decided in lunch. We ordered the goat cheese flatbread as an appetizer, the trout entree and a steak sandwich. The flatbread was one of the best things I’ve eaten, warm flat bread spread with soft goat cheese covered with butternut squash and carmelized onions with crispy onion straws on top. Enough for two as an app, went perfectly with my martini. Trout was served with a veggie hash with chorizo and candied jalapeños. Just spicy enough, the trout filet was on the small side. Could have used a piece of bread to go with it. Steak sandwich was cubed pieces of steak (overdone to my taste, would have preferred a medium rare since steak was a bit tough) covered in peppers and melted cheese. I wish the baguette would have been toasted and crispy. Very thin cut fries were perfect-hot, crisp and salty. Plenty to share. Finished with an Espresso Martini which was expertly made, very strong espresso taste (for those who don’t like coffee flavor!). Window seat was perfect to watch the sun dance across the lake. Not cheap but was well worth the expense. Servers were delightful and the restaurant was immaculate (stop in the bathroom-it is gorgeous!). Wish there were a few more options on the menu since I want to stop again and again. Extensive beer, wine and cocktail list.

    ham-let: see also, The Greystone Inn, sanctuary, culinary delight. This beautifully property truly is a mountain hamlet, on a private lake-no less. If the geography and historic dwelling itself were not enough, The Greystone also boasts an intimate, fabulous fireplace clad, restaurant with breathtaking views. The seasonal menu always features some recognizable and perfected favorites while also offering surprising twists. You can dig in to fresh local mountain trout or the best burger and frites you ever ate, or expand your palate with gourmet choices like roasted duck with French lentils and cherry confit. The Greystone merges history, geography, delicious food and personalized service. Where else can you get that?
