Salmon was dried out. Service was terrible, had to wait for drinks and waitress blamed it on computer issues.

Great food with great service for Easter. Tables were spaced 6’ apart, and some were divided by large plexiglass partitions. We both had the Easter ham lunch, and it was delicious with a deviled egg appetizer. Good wine list and wonderful Bloody Mary! Excellent job Sisters! Thanks!

Sisters at Martha is a typical small town restaurant. Salad was good, but salmon on it was overcooked a bit and the Pino Gris was sweet and kind of heavy. Server was very nice and the service was prompt.

It is still their winter season, so there aren’t as many people there and it is quiet. The inn is beautiful, as well as the restaurant. The food was delicious; we ordered the chicken and waffles, a pork dish, key lime pie and raspberry sorbet.

The actual restaurant is undergoing renovation and we look forward to it re-opening. In the interim the restaurant has moved into the hotel ballroom as such the atmosphere and ambience suffers, but the food (limited menu again due to the renovation) was nonetheless very good and the service first-rate.

Our visit to Sisters was a truly enjoyable experience. We were celebrating our 57th wedding anniversary, and, have eaten and traveled the world for years. Service from entry to table was gracious and warm, and, the festive air from others having a good time and lots of conversation was welcoming. Service was immediate and attentive from Jennifer. Our meals of filet and trout were outstanding and the sides of deviled eggs, asparagus, and brussel sprouts, and bread were excellent. While your selections of entrees are limited, the individual preparations are superior. We were reminded of the many fine restaurants we have visited in other locations with the ambiance you have captured. Congratulations!

The food was absolutely superb. The statement , " You eat with your eyes first, " applies to this environment. The service and attention to detail was impeccable. We have not had a dining experience like that in several years. The entire staff should be commended for their professionalism. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal and the ambiance.

We had to track down the valet when we arrived and when we left. We sat waiting for service for 30 mins. Had to go ask if we had a server. They were on a phone call and couldn’t help us quickly. Food took forever to get to us and had clearly been sitting under a heat lamp for quite some time. This used to be a nice place to eat- but we will never return.

Dining room was freezing. Waitress apologized but said "no one knows how to light the fireplace." By the time our meal was finished, the very pregnant little hostess (in ugh boots) was able to light it. Tacky flower arrangements were substandard for a high end Inn as Martha Washington. Thank goodness breakfast was included the next morning, because it was not worth $17.50. No butter, jelly packets as in a diner etc. And we wore our coats to breakfast.

I want to love this restaurant as much as we did two years ago. The breakfast included in the room rate was— at that time— luxurious and well worth the touted $17 price for non-guests. This time it was ho-hum. The food and presentation were just okay. Smuckers jam in little plastic disposable containers?! Margarine? Nah. Dinner was similar. Pretty sure the dessert was topped with Cool Whip. I know the staff was very busy with Thanksgiving prep. But still think standards have eroded. We were also there for Thanksgiving Day lunch. Very overpriced! My fault for not inquiring. But I never dreamed we’d be charged $55 per person!!! For a meal that was ample but not extravagant as the cost implies. And all tasted okay but not so different in quality than Cracker Barrel. I’m sorry to say. The desserts were pretty stellar. Nice but not really geared to making diners feel that the high prices are worth it. Go instead to Rain, the lovely restaurant up the street!
