The welcoming was very nice. The man at the desk was diligent. The ambiance of the restaurant, even tough the place is large, you don't have a sense of being over crowded.

We've been many times for dinner and a la carte brunch which have always been amazing. However we were disappointed with the Easter Buffet. The veggie medley and prime rib were under cooked and the bread was not fresh. The kids had to go to the bar to get their drinks refilled since our server was consumed with two other large tables and rarely came by once they were sat. We did have a late seating (4:30) and thought maybe that's why serving trays weren't being refreshed but as we walked out all the station seems to be replenished with fresh cooked food. I was so looking forward to a yummy Easter feast that I didn't have to cook. We won't be returning for another buffet, especially since my almost 11 year old will then be full price. But that is another post. ;)

Too expensive for the kind of meal. Also, imposing 20% tips is not proper. The service was average. The reservation was canceled and we had to redo it despite the fact that we were told that there was no place. The manager abruptly told us they had no more available seating when in fact there were slots open in Open Table!

$50/adult for a buffet lunch was NOT worth it!! Desserts were horrible; food choices were limited, basic, mediocre, definitely not worth $50. And the manager, Mehrdad, appeared unfriendly, no PR skills whatsoever. Everyone in my party was astounded at the price- all said this was a rip-off! This is the price you would pay at The Capital Grille; you go to a fantastic Turkish, Chinese, Lebanese, Italian restaurant at less than this price.

The Comus is a quaint restaurant in Dickerson, MD. It looks out to Sugarloaf Mountain, so the view is beautiful and most tables have a view. We went for Easter Sunday Brunch. It was fantastic. Not an overwhelming number of foods to pick from but most were tasty. The crab breakfast entrees (Omelet, and Egg Chesapeake) were exquisite. Fresh lump crab meat with limited shells and best of all, they did not skimp on the portion size. Roast Beef was Prime Rib and was cooked perfectly, they also had fresh roasted lamb at the cutting station. The side dishes were good but the whipped sweet potatoes and mac and cheese were the winners. Ham and fish choices were disappointing. The ham was well, ham nothing out of the ordinary. The only fish was catfish (also had some salmon for the breakfast side order). Salad bar was small but nice. Biggest let down was the desserts. Now there were a lot of them but between the family and I we tried most of them. Fresh baked cookies and carrot cake were the winners. Biggest loser (did not take more than one bite) were the canolis. Comus Inn - definitely worth the visit!

We went for Easter Brunch. Food was at best average. You have to go down stairs to get your food and then carry it back up stairs. This was hard to do without running into wait staff or customers, and was especially difficult Sr. citizens or disabled. The brunch was $50 per person and didn’t even include coffee which was an additional $3 per cup.

Wonderful experience at The Comus Inn. As usual the food choices made our entire group very satisfied- the lamb is second to none and even the smaller bites like the blitzes were perfect- thanks to Donna who made our whole family feel at home. If you have not been to The Comus Inn- I beg you to get there soon!

A favorite for our family for years, and local to us. The Comus Inn was our choice for our son’s wedding venue and the event was just a totally beautiful affair. Highly recommend the Comus Inn for anyone’s dining pleasure of fine food and service plus a beautiful setting with Sugarloaf Mountain as a magnificent view in the sunset. Will continue to return and be pampered by their staff!

Everything was very nice and we plan to go back for Sunday brunch in the spring when the flowers are in bloom. We were surprised, however, they only had paper boxes for leftovers. We had to ask for it to be lined with plastic wrap so the food wouldn't leak out in the car.

We loved the opportunity to take advantage of the Valentine's menu. Ahi tuna salad, crispy brussel sprouts to start, yum.
Lobster resotto, Beef short rib and Mushroom cassoulet for main courses.... amazing!
Last but not least chocolate molten cake, creme brulee and salted caramel triple chocolate tart, is your mouth watering?
Katelyn our server was wonderful and fun. Drinks and wine go without saying, always delicious.

Worst Valentine’s Day dinner ever. Table wasn’t ready for over an hour after reservation. No place to wait for table. No drinks offered while waiting . So complimentary desert or appetizer for the 90 minute wait. Service sub-par service for a $250 meal. Food was “okay”. Not worth the price though. Will not return or recommend.

The food and cocktails were A+. The service staff equally top notch, friendly, engaging appropriately and caring about getting it right. The only downside is represented by this quote from the waitress when I asked if she forgot my cocktail, "we have 3 floors filled with tables and 1 bartender". The same issue apparently in the kitchen. The kitchen was also backed up. They need more staff to support a full house (Valentine's Day 2018). After two hours plus, we asked for desert to just be boxed up.
We will definitely go back on a less busy night.

Took my wife here for Valentine's Day. Nice scenic area near Sugarloaf Mountain. Menu was the Valentine's Day special menu.
Martini's were great.
Brussel sprout appetizer was very good, duck confit was so so
Meals (short ribs and salmon) were great
Desserts were very good too.
Heard great things about Sunday Brunch so we'll need to return to try that out.
Special occasion place for sure

Food was good, loved the atmosphere! Service was really bad, we were never checked on, took 30 minutes to get our dessert after we were finished diner. We never received our chocolate covered strawberries as was part of the Valentine’s Day dinner. We won’t go out of our way to go back but, may try again some day.

The Inn is always a great place for special occasions and quiet dinners with friends. The fried Brussels sprout appetizer and the lamb with the special sauce and cheesy grits followed by the melt-in-your mouth brownie were all excellent choices. I doubt that one could have a "bad" meal here. It isn't a cheap place to eat, but the food, service and ambiance are a good value.
