A quiet, quaint gem in Historic Edenton with excellent food and service. Very intimate setting, limited seating, and small menu. The perfect place to enjoy a special meal.

Dinner here was a fabulous experience! It's probably best for a date night, but my Mom and I were visiting and decided to try it. It is intimate and lovely, with a very relaxed feel. The meal was excellent! I highly recommend!

The venue is stunning with a gorgeous open garden and grounds, perfect for small weddings. However, there was no music in the very quiet dining room which led to a somewhat sepulchral atmosphere and our server seemed to be distracted by our presence, and suggested that our original 7:30 reservation would have been inconvenient. Furthermore, while our meal was flavorful, technique was not up to the 32 dollar entree price, with our duck breast so tough and overcooked, it was difficult to cut with a steak knife. This place has so much potential with the gorgeous location, but needs to step up the service professionalism and food execution if they want to charge 50+ per person for drinks and a meal.

The food was outstanding. Everything we had was creative and hyper-fresh. I wasn't expecting much from the bread service, but oh wow was I wrong on that! Best I've had in years! We shared two small plates: bacon wrapped brussel sprouts and tuna tartare. Presentation was good on the sprouts and beautiful on the tuna. My husband had rainbow trout and asparagus. I had smoked duck breast with pureed parsnips and sauteed rainbow chard. We both wanted to lick our plates! For dessert we shared a perfect mixed berry sorbet. The wine list was not large, but was solid.

The only slightly off note was that there was only one server who was helped by a manager. The server started us out just right, but she became overwhelmed as more tables were seated. It wasn't enough to put us off though. We'll definitely be back!

This restaurant is a gem. I had several options from their small plate menu and everything was delightful. The bread service started things right with a house-spread creation that I’ve never had before but rate as an absolute 5/5 that could compete ANYWHERE. Then I tried the bacon-wrapped Brussel sprouts (5/5), the steak-wrapped shrimp (4.8/5), the shrimp cocktail with house made cocktail sauce (6/5!!!), and the shepherd’s pie (4.5/5). The shepherd’s pie needed a little salt and pepper to take it to 5/5 status,

This is our second time visiting the restaurant (first time being in May and our experience was exceptionally wonderful!) Like last time, we sat outside because the ambience is very peaceful and relaxing. Overall, we were disappointed with this go-round. My mom and I wanted martinis with tito's vodka and the waitress had told us that they (owners) did not go to the liquor store that day so they were out. Secondly, we were so hoping for the charcuterie appetizer and were told that they no longer serve it, so we settled for fried green tomatoes. Other options were fried oysters or a salad; also bummed with the lack of options available. Our entree of scallops were absolutely amazing as always; however during our last experience we were served 4 scallops on a bed of risotto with creamed spinach (ahhh-mazing), and this time we had 3 scallops with a small amount of assorted veggies. When asking our waitress for dessert options, given that we were still hungry, we had two simplistic options, unlike our first experience when we had been offered an array of desserts and chose the wonderful creme brulee! Needless to say, this experience was so far off from our first and may hinder whether we ever come back.

Overall an average experience. Food and service were good, but a bit overpriced and the menu was very limited. Too much distraction with the waiters go in and out of the dining room serving patrons sitting outside on the porch. Most likely would not return to this venue.

Our review would have been better but they were out of a selection of wines and 2 of the main entrees. Knowing the entrees were gone this should have been explained up front before we ordered not afterwards. Yes, they apologized but not enough. We also had guests from out of state and we had given great reviews and their expectations were not met.

We enjoyed our dinners (and breakfasts) at The Table at Inner Banks. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable! Everything we ordered was perfectly prepared and delicious! The staff is very accommodating if you wish to make a change on the dish you are ordering. I would highly recommend this restaurant, and I am looking forward to eating there again when we get up the Edenton way.

We were sadly disappointed. We arrived and the restaurant was closed. Apparently there was a gas leak in the kitchen. We were not notified by phone and travelled from 30 miles away to eat there. We called the phone number and a woman came out from the Inn to say she thought everyone had been called. She recommended we return for breakfast the next morning, which made absolutely no sense to us.

The absolute worst dining experience of my life! Arrived at 7:00 PM. Finally received some bread around 8:30 PM. Meals arrived at almost 9:00 PM. Ordered a Filet (medium rare)with Broccolini and mashed potatoes with a seared Ahi Tuna (Rare) add on. My Filet was cooked medium well done and my Ahi was so overcooked it did not even resemble Ahi. No Broccolini, instead they served Black rice that was completely raw and way over salted (so was the filet and Ahi, so much sodium in everything to make bad food taste even worse!). My meal was not the only meal that somehow went horribly wrong in the kitchen 4 out of the 6 meals were essentially uneatable. I give the Table one kudos, they did not make us pay for the 4 meals.
