The Comus Inn at Sugarloaf Mountain Ratings and Reviews
Loved the view and ambiance. The food was finely prepared. For Thanksgiving meal, there was a wide selection of well prepared meats and salads. The desserts were scrumptious (sinfully so for the crème Brule).
What was missed was a selection of green vegetables (peas, green beans, broccoli, etc.).
However, what detracted from the experience was the lack of service. Seated on the second floor, guests had to traverse up and down stairs to get to their food. Upstairs, our server was seen only once every 20-30 minutes - too long if you needed a glass filled or anything beyond your own self service. While there was a carver provided for a cut of turkey or prime rib, he is not supposed to request you to take the leftovers from the old turkey or slab of prime or to try to get you to take the first slice of the next turkey with the skin or "Please take a leg." IMO, if someone wants anything but the breast, they shouldn't be coming to a fine dining establishment.
For the price, we will think twice before returning again.
We booked Thanksgiving brunch at the Comus Inn for ourselves and our daughter and her husband. We had never been there before but we are definitely going back. The food was excellent and the service was outstanding. The view towards Sugarloaf Mountain is nothing shy of magnificent. The waitress accomodated our request for a photo with grace and a smile. There was nothing to fault -- a gem that I had so far missed in my 10 years in Montgomery County.
Congratulations to The Comus Inn! You did it again with your Thanksgiving Day Buffet- the new additions of the Pumpkin Ravioli and Pumpkin Waffles were scrumptious and made what was already a standout buffet and fabulous meal, even better. As always, The Comus Inn offered extraordinary service and flavors so fresh that you could not find any complaints - so my complements to the staff for an excellent experience. If you have not been The Comus Inn yet, you really need to try it - the consistency of food, service and excellent flavors make it a definite choice for brunch, dinner, or an occasion. We look foreward to going back very soon - well done!
Beautiful setting - with a view of sugar loaf and the countryside (ask to sit on heated and enclosed back porch huge windows and beautiful views) patio in warmer weather, outstanding service - everyone from the manager to the server was friendly and welcoming (even the bartenders and bussers greeted us as we entered and left) very welcoming , food very good but not amazing - good basic food...
We ate dinner at the Comus Inn last Wednesday. We had been there for our rehearsal dinner for our wedding and wanted to go back.
The service was outstanding! Our waitress was knowledgeable and came by at just the right times. She knew the menu and was helpful in making good dinner choices.
The food was very good but very overpriced. I had the crab cake which was a $40.00 entree. Not that outrageous for a crab cake if the portions are good. This was tiny, served on 4 microscopic asparagus spears with 3 potato wedges served in a metal pot to keep them warm. There was no side salad. If this meal cost the restaurant $10.00 to make, I'd be surprised. My husband had the chicken which was good, but again, for $28.00, the portion was small and nothing exceptional.
I wish I had nicer things to say about this restaurant. In spring and summer the views are wonderful and you can eat outside.
I'm all for a business making a profit, but I felt like I was being fleeced.
The food at The Comus Inn is always awesome. However, on our recent romantic night out, we couldn't leave the restaurant fast enough. The live music was far, far too loud. My husband and I were unable to converse at all. We weren't offered an option of sitting in the room with the music and were shocked to see available seats elsewhere when we were leaving. Had it been an enjoyable evening, we would have had another glass of wine or dessert. We were very disappointed.
Comus inn has been around for a long time! Beautiful views while eating. Premium food and prices. Excellent service and wine list. Food was delicious! Atmosphere quiet. No kids when we went so perfect date night! Would highly recommend if you want a nice night out!
Our experience was a delightful mid-afternoon luncheon in the country. Our table overlooked Sugarloaf Mt. The wait service was friendly and helpful. The food was delicious and was presented in a lovely way. The ambiance was lovely and the restaurant was not noisy. My husband and I could actually carry on a conversation! Reservations are recommended as this is a favorite spot.
The Comus Inn has become one of our favorite dinner spots. We usually start by enjoying a dozen oysters which they kindly serve on two plates rather than just one large platter in the center of the table. The warm dinner roll with honey butter cannot be passed-up! Selecting a salad is not easy, the seasonal specials are wonderful treats; this visit we both enjoyed the baby kale with citrus. Entrees are also creative and delicious. I especially enjoy the salmon and any steak is a great choice. For dessert try either the crème brulee or chocolate cake.
From the back dining room there is a lovely view on the surrounding farm land. Interior dining rooms offer a quiet elegance in an intimate setting.
In making reservations we requested a window seat facing sugerloaf mountain. In reservation confirmation they did not state that this area of the restaurant had been planned for a reception later that night. We arrived early to insure good seating but they still did not inform us of the lousy seating we would be given. The rib eye steak was lousy. The salads and crab soups were outstanding.
Not recommended for the average guy. Will not return and will not recommend to others
nice enough place to eat. the waitress was cute and friendly. great views of the mountains but obstructed by a huge white party tent right out the window. Awkward tables for two lining the wall opposite the windows. The tables were very long and skinny making it difficult to talk to the person opposite you. I wouldn't go back.
From start to finish everything was fabulous. Comfortable, quaint, awesome view. The maître d Jesse was professional and pleasant. The service was just right. Not too much where they're checking on you every 2 minutes. The food was perfect. My crab BLT was delicious. Defiantly try the crab hush puppies.
Service was excellent.Teas, scones, & pastries delicious. Sandwich selection mediocre. Comus Inn is a lovely setting with beautiful views of the mountains. Lovely decor and such friendly staff. Our only disappointment is that their Sunday tea is served group style with everyone seated at a long table in a private room. The explanation was that Tea is to be a time to socialize and meet new friends. That's not what my friends and I look for in an afternoon tea, but rather a private table in a quiet environment where we can catch up on what's been going on in each others' lives. We don't go to Tea to make new friends. So if you are looking for a nice quiet table to relax over tea and pastries to talk privately, this is not the Tea for you.
This is a charming place for dinner or brunch. We had dinner and could see the sunset on Sugarloaf mountain. We both had filet mignon and they were excellent. While the experience was good and will go back, I would say the service was on the slow side and menu could have a few more choices.
Beautiful setting, very elegant. One of the wonderful things about this restaurant, however, is the view. Therefore, we were very disappointed when we arrived to find that the view was almost entirely obstructed by a huge white events tent, set up for wedding. I know they do events, but it ruined a special dining experience. The food was well prepared, but nothing extraordinary or partciularly creative or complex.
Sad to see that they've opted to start charging for biscuits and whatnot, but they haven't let me down in terms of food yet. The view is amazing on a nice day and it's the perfect place for a meal with the parents. It's not as dressy as Yelp states, but I wouldn't come in with jorts and a no-sleeve shirt.
Service was great and the staff has a great attitude. Food is not mind-blowing, but good with interesting combinations of ingredients in their dishes (nothing crazy though). Would definitely be coming back here again.
From the moment Jesse greeted until he bid us farewell we had a lovely evening. The Comus Inn is becoming one of our favorite dinner restaurants. Everything we ordered was very fresh, delicious and nicely plated. Their wine options are very impressive, with choices to fit any budget, including many choices by the glass.
The service pace is maybe a little slow for those prone to eat quickly and not interested in being seated at a dining table for more than a few minutes. But, if you’re going out for a nice dinner and want to enjoy the company of your dining companions and take in the beautiful view of the surrounding farm land this is the perfect restaurant.
What a lovely place! The Comus Inn is beautiful, romantic and picturesque. I took my girlfriend and her kids and my kids there to celebrate two birthdays. We had a great time; the food is delicious, service excellent and the place couldn't be more lovely with a beautiful view of Sugarloaf Mountain. The charcuterie plate is very nice - with homemade meats; I had the delicious and very filling Shrimp and Grits with Andouille Sausage. The homemade waffles were a big hit with the kids and the crab hush puppies were delicious. Great bloody mary's too!
The wait staff and management were very friendly and accommodating. I highly recommend The Comus Inn for a great brunch, a romantic dinner or a special occasion like a birthday or an anniversary.
Has amazing potential if decor etc were more in keeping with old country inn - also disappointed in food -- too much and mediocre-- reviews on line in August were discouraging - almost decided agst- but some September reviews were enthusiastic -- service was great except waitress should have told us much sooner lunch was really late being served due to mixup in kitchen
The only thing we can find negative to say is that they didn't have our first choice of wine, and seemed a bit rushed in the service, even though there were empty tables in our room. Food was very well prepared (we both had beef, and the sauces were very tasty). Peanut butter Napoleon for dessert was unique and delicious. I'd have made the chocolate on the top a bit thinner so it was easier to pierce with a fork. The setting is charming and the host was friendly and engaging. We'll be back for another special occasion.
I've been to the Comus Inn several times before and left feeling disappointed this last time. The staff is friendly and the views if the sunset and Sugarloaf Mountain were beautiful but other than that the dining experience wasn't one that made me want to come back. We waited more than an hour for our dinner entrees and when they finally did arrive they were "okay". The portions were small and the food was overpriced. I'm not usually a fan of massive portion sizes or "cheap food" but if I'm spending more than $100 for dinner for two I'd expect a little more food than what we were presented with, especially after having to wait an hour for it. The wait staff was friendly but I wish someone had checked on the status of our order sooner.
