Really enjoyed my visit,great place to have dinner with friends and family.everything was superb with food and service.
We enjoyed laughing at the desert after seeing a picture of a large chocolate moose on web and ordered what we thought was large enough for 4 and got a very small serving with 4 small petet spoons.FUNNY

Lovely location and good menu which is frequently updated. Very pretty setting with inside and outside dining. Service was cordial and knowledgeable but with so few diners food seemed to come out of the kitchen at a very slow place. Not a huge deal but if we are taking our time over dinner I would have hoped our server would have been more attentive to our beverages. Entree portions seemed small for the price paid. Nevertheless overall a good experience and we'll be back!

We were travelling home and stopped in Edenton for dinner. It was Sunday, so few options, but we were pleasantly surprised to see the top restaurant in Edenton open so we made 5:30 reservations.

We were promptly seated. Our server was nice. Tables are spaced closer than we are used to, but servers were wearing masks. There was a weird's a small space, quiet, and all the tables were a bit on top of each other so you had to talk quietly to not feel like you were talking to the whole room. Also, there was no enforcement of masks by people coming into the restaurant...another couple came in without masks and were seated at the table closest to us (despite other tables available). Once they sat down, they did ask if it was OK but they were already seated.

The menu options were limited but understandable given the size and being Sunday night. We ordered the crabcake appetizer, the Chicken Piccata, another crabcake appetizer and the watermelon/feta salad, and my son and I both ordered the Bruschetta burger, but his just burger and cheese (no tomato bruschetta)

Shortly thereafter, the server told us that they only had three burgers to start the night and had already served two so there was only one left (they had just opened!) So I got the burger, and they made mac/cheese and chicken tenders for my son.

My wife's piccata was dry, my daughter's watermelon salad had a strong vinegar taste that overwhelmed it, and my burger did not have any bruschetta...after I was halfway through I realized they had brought the burger my son ordered not mine. Also, the "spiral potatoes" are french fries. That being said, the crabcakes were amazing and the best part of the meal. My burger was good but was not the correct item. Also, two other tables (2 tops) came in after us, received their food and were done dining before our food came.

Not sure if it was an off night, but it didn't live up to the reviews for us, and we wish we'd saved the money and just drove home

We loved it there. From reservations to departure.... they were great (helpful, polite, kind, and professional.). I think we've found another vacation spot (not Edenton... I was born and raised in Edenton...) the Inner Banks Inn is our spot. I think we'll work our way through each room over the next couple of years. I forgot my suit and we were miles away when they called me, but they held it in the office until I came back for it.
I'll be recommending the Inner Banks Inn to all my friends. Breakfast was incredible.

We made a reservation at The Table for our 5th anniversary. We’ve eaten all over the United States, and the meal was superb. My husband, who is from Kansas City, said his filet mignon was among the best steaks he has ever eaten. My shrimp and pasta dinner was so good that if I had been hungrier, I would have ordered another one! The ambiance, our wonderful server Brandi, and the excellent food exemplifies the best NC offers. We look forward to our next seating at The Table.

Dinner at The Table was a lovely experience. We ate there twice for dinner, plus breakfasts two mornings, and the food was extremely good each time. The tomato-spinach quiche was the best quiche I've ever had: light but smooth, creamy and flavorful, with a perfectly flaky crust, and the scallops I had for dinner were indeed large, tender and buttery. Service was efficient and knowledgeable (and very pleasant). I suppose I should not wish that the entrees were not quite so expensive, but one can dream, right?

Terrific menu though not overwhelming. There were a lot of item we wanted to try. Our party of four presented the restaurant with some dietary challenges with one member of our party on a Keto diet and two others with gluten sensitives. Our party started with stuffed mushrooms, prosciutto wrapped shrimp. I had French Onion soup and the ladies shared an apple walnut salad. For entrees, the ladies shared the scallop entree and both the men in the party had filets, one without the mushrooms. The food and service were both excellent and the stuffed mushrooms were the best ever. For desert we had the flourless chocolate cake, key lime pie and raspberry cheesecake. We’ll definitely be back as it was a wonderful evening.

Fine dining with an unpretentious ambiance. Food preperation and presentation were impeccable! I've eaten my share of scallops, but I'd have to say this entree may even top the digby scallops in Nova Scotia. Chef John is amazing. Thanks for an incredible dining experience.

Food was awesome! Service was not. Steak was one of the best we’ve had. Waitress wanted us to order our food when we ordered our drinks because a “big” party was coming in... we were a table of 8 they were 10.

The food was good, nothing spectacular and was overpriced. The service was good, not excellent but in all fairness to the waitress, she was the only one serving that evening. She was not very knowledgeable about the entrees being served. The restaurant is okay but certainly not a place for a romantic dinner, the tables are close together and the noise carries.

A bit disappointing. The service was so slow and not up to the standards you would expect from this type of restaurant. The food was good, but not outstanding and certainly not gourmet.

We were slightly disappointed after hearing such good comments from others who had eaten there.
The setting is charming and initial atmosphere was pleasant. It soon became apparent the the wait staff was under stress. We soon discovered that one of our selected entries was unavailable and that our first choice wine was out of stock. The food arrived within a reasonable time and it was good. However, based on the cost of the entrees verses the quality and presentation of the dishes, we were somewhat underwhelmed. Although we had a satisfactory meal, we will not be returning in the future. For the prices charges, we give it a 3-star rating.

As much as it pains me to write negative comments I honestly was a little disappointed with my overall experience... I had heard great things so of course my expectations were high! The restaurant is in a beautiful old building and the young man that greeted us was very personable. Warm rolls and herb butter were delicious ,our entrees were good but not great. I think the dessert menu was a little underwhelming cream ,sorbet and chocolate torte...however the flourless torte was much to my surprise quite delicious.
Unfortunately what really made the experience negative was our server. She didn’t introduce herself, did not crack a smile even once ,did not mention specials, and honestly was borderline rude... I know everyone is entitled to a bad day but it wasn’t busy at all and we were not a demanding group... I expect more from this caliber of restaurant.
I would still recommend the restaurant though in the hopes that it was just an off night!

Amazing food! A MUST if you are visiting Edenton. We started with the shrimp cocktail and seasonal salads - so fresh and so delicious. I probably could have stopped there...but we both had their crab cakes as our entree - I’d say by far the best Crab cakes I ever had! Very little filler - perfectly served over “warm potato salad” which was not at all what I thought - these potatoes were creamy, rich and like the texture of risotto - great flavor! Brocollini was perfect and to top it off... I’m even gonna rave about the dinner rolls and herbed butter - best on the planet! Overall the food in Edenton is wonderful- but this place is a treasure!!!

Was looking for a romantic dinner location and this fell short. The ding area is open with no privacy, or ambiance. When I made reservation I asked for a more private table and they seated us right inside the front door in the middle of the Room. Food was decent but nothing to rave about. Service was mediocre at best, waitress was abrupt and not friendly.

I called to confirm there was wheelchair access...and told there was. Upon arrival there was no designated handicap parking and I had to unload my wife in the parking lot, park the car and return to wheel her to the restaurant. The access is through the side of the building, over broken steeping stones, uneven ground, no lighting and up an old, dirty wooden ramp next to the trash. I wheeled her into the side door, past the restrooms and kitchen then into the dining room. Thankfully there were no guests present as it was a very difficult way to for my wife to arrive in the dining room of an establishment of this calibre. Certainly it is possible to clean up the wheel chair access to allow a more dignified way to enter the dining room at The Table.

It was a beautiful spring evening to dine outside. The courtyard area very inviting. Excellent service
from wait staff. Our waiter was from Wake Forest NC too! Always find it is a small world on our travels. Food and drinks were well prepared. Small choice menu, but great for the setting.

This is a quaint, small place that is worth a try. There is no bar, but they will serve you a drink out on the patio if you prefer to have a cocktail away from your dining table. For the meal, the winter salad was really good with a great house dressing which was a sort of sweet and sour vinaigrette. I ordered the moroccon filet. It was cooked perfectly rare as requested, but the dry rub was really tasteless. And this left the filet to be fairly tasteless. My wife ordered a seafood dish, on the menu as trout, but snapper was substituted that night. She really enjoyed hers. I got to eat her grilled asparagus which was great also. Overall, I thought this place was great to try once, but it was too expensive for the quality I felt. We probably would not return.
