My wife and I tried the Wooster Inn for a Valentine's Dinner. The food was excellent and service was good. I was a little dissapointed to see some waiters in tennis shoes. Overall ambiance was good, but would have been better if they would have had dimmer lights, music playing and no TV at dinnertime. (they have a nice pub in basement with TV's). Overall our experience was good and look forward to returning in the summer to eat on the patio and enjoy the view.

Third time for brunch at the Wooster Inn. This time, I had the pecan encrusted chicken Cobb salad. Really outstanding. This should really be their signature dish.

My wife and I had a wonderful, "Christmas season" evening at the Inn with dear friends from the College of Wooster.

The Lola Chardonnay recommended by proprietor Ken Bogucki to accompany our crab & shrimp cake appetizer was outstanding - quite dry with hints of the Sauvignon Blanc that I had initially considered, but much more mellow. Lola goes into my memory bank for future selection.

The Inn's decking of the halls was just splendid. My wife and I took it all in awaiting our guests in the parlor after an early arrival. Tropical weather or not, we were moved into the Christmas spirit.

We were warmly greeted and served expertly by the Inn's staff. Ken stopped by for a pleasant chat. The chef who created the fabulous braised short ribs dish that we enjoyed with a splendid R&B Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon came out and gave us history of the dish's development and success not only winning the top prize in an NFL cook-off, but also generating support for people in need.

After the Lola & crab/shrimp cakes start, each entree enhanced the experience, with the French silk pie finale capping a memorable meal for us all.

Prior to this most recent experience Wooster Inn has been a reasonably good experience. In the past the wine list was extensive, 100+ wines. This time we were give a choice of four whites and four reds. The menu has changed to offer more vegetarian dishes and fewer meat dishes. Three of us ordered strip steak and all agreed that the steak had too much gristle and fat. Bread was served after the salads and the salads were served less than five minutes before the main course. The fourth in our party ordered a pork chop which was dry and difficult to cut. are

We had a simply lovely dinner on October 7th on our way back to Lakewood from Amish Country. It was a beautiful late afternoon for our early dinner, so we chose to have our dinner on the back patio that overlooked the golf driving range. Our server was attentive and professional, and our walleye entrees were outstanding! Thus, the ambiance, service and food all were superb and we look forward to our next visit to the Wooster Inn. Thank you!

A rather disappointing experience. Have been coming to the Wooster Inn for years as a "special place" to eat when attending an OLO performance, but doubt I will ever again. The mashed potatoes were cold and had to be sent back to be "nuked," and the food in general (when it finally arrived) was also rather disappointing. The waitress was friendly, but not very attentive. That a restaurant is so cheap that they can't even serve a spoon with the meal I find really tacky and lacking in basic class -- as many other people do, too. A spoon wasn't even served with the coffee when we ordered desert; we had to use our knives to stir the milk in our coffee. Definitely not very classy at all. Shame on the Wooster Inn! It used to be a rather elegant room to take a guest, but now the place felt more like a sports bar, what with two large TV screens with sports activities going on hanging on the walls. What once was a lovely dining area we found now to be quite pedestrian. Not worth the drive or the price for a rather pedestrian meal, service and ambiance.

I had not eaten at the Wooster Inn for many years and was surprised to find its dining room sparsely populated on a Sunday afternoon. But the quality of the food and service explained the paucity of diners. This establishment seems to have gone downhill. Eggs Benedict featured a burned English muffin and eggs so hard-cooked they could have starred in a film noir. While the overworked server was happy to replace our entrées with better food — unadorned Belgian waffles — he accidentally billed us for the eggs, rather than the less expensive waffles. Ultimately we spent more time waiting for him to straighten out his and the cook's errors than we did eating the food. We shall not be going there again.

Ambiance was nice with view of the golf course. Our waiter was young and a little nervous but did a fine job.
I started with tasty lobster bisque, then on to the perfectly prepared fillet mignon with simple but excellent sides. My wife had a wonderful Pecan-encrusted chicken Cobb salad, and we shared a $38 bottle of wine that tasted like it was a $100 bottle.

All in all, a great meal at a reasonable price.

We will definitely return.
