We used a Groupon coupon so this was an exceptional value. My wife and I had the sea scallops and the special risotto. Both meals offered good sized portions and tasted fantastic.

Great setting near Sugarloaf Mountain.

We went here for an anniversary dinner. It would have been an enjoyable dinner if the sun wasn't shining in our eyes during the evening. The table next to us was also very loud and difficult not to listen in. Food was pretty good but not worth going back for.

We went back for our 20th anniversary. We were married at Comus Inn.
The staff was professional and friendly. Although it was a bit costly, the food was worth it and cooked with amazing flavors. The crab cake, with no fillers and scallops were delicious! The goat cheese salad was good as well as the MD crab soup. The desserts were just as good. We had the Blondie brownie and the Crème Brulee. The cocktails and champagne cocktails were very smooth drinks.
A restaurant with historical background and a beautiful view of Sugarloaf mountains from the window, everyone should at least try once if not come back repeatidly to enjoy!

The setting was beautiful, the dining room was really hot because the sun comes directly in the windows to the point you have to wear sunglasses which is a bit akward. The food was decent but took a long time to come out. I got the scallops and they were good, but not sure if the plate was worth $42. I've always wanted to dine there but it was a bit stuffy and overpriced. Might be better for brunch.

Great meal as usual. Josh our server, who was in training did an outstanding job of taking care of our party.
Enjoyed the mozzarella special that was highlighted on Instagram, delicious.
We enjoyed the pork chop special, gumbo, halibut special and chicken for dinner.
Drinks through dessert were wonderful, great evening!

The food was exceptionally tasty and creative. The staff went out of their way to welcome us. An off hand question related to one of their awards posted on the wall in the lobby resulted in a visit from the chef and the manager to talk to us about the award. It was as surprising as it was enjoyable. Meeting the person responsible for preparing an exceptional meal is always a special treat. And the setting is beautiful. I only wish we could have dined duing a colorful sunset! Highly recommended.

Food was ok but overpriced for what you get, in my opinion. The best thing is the view out the window, which we didn't get so I suggest asking for a window seat when you reserve.

The table was perfect - just as requested. Our server, Keira, was excellent and our meals were wonderful - with the exception of the crab soup. For some reason, it did not taste like traditional crab soup and my guest did not enjoy it.

Portions were plentiful, the view was lovely and, in general, we had a great time.

Beautiful place providing exceptional service. However, I would consider the prices to be extremely high for the meal provided.
Always wanted to visit while living in Maryland and now that we do not live in the State we took the opportunity to do so while visiting but we were highly disappointed for the prices on the limited menu.
Lunch hours are no offered during the week?????
The outside views were blocked by a huge tent outdoor in preparation for a wedding. We were there on a Wednesday early evening 5:00 p.m.

We had a very nice Fathers Day lunch there in the lovely room that they show on the website. The food was generally excellent although the fried potatoes (home fries?) on almost every plate were a bit downscale. The staff was very congenial and since it was very busy, everyone was helping out.

Went to Comus Inn for Father's Day Brunch -- a great value at $25/person! Made a request on Open Table to sit near a window, so was able to enjoy the beautiful scenery. Food was delicious -- we had the Monte Cristo with French toast and the Sunday Pot Roast, along with a couple of drinks. Couldn't have asked for a nicer experience.

Went for Fathers Day brunch. Although the food and service was wonderful it would be nice to order dishes not on the fixed Prix Fix menu. The $25 per person is a little steep for someone who doesn't have a big appetite.

We've been here before and always have had great service, yesterday we were seated at a table right by the front door - was difficult to have a conversation. Our wait staff seemed like she had NEVER waited tables before. Very disappointed. Coffee was luke warm, when we finally were able to get some. If this has been our first time, we would not go back.

Service was extrememly slow. We thought the waitress forgot to put our order into the kitchen.
One member of our party order a medium rare burger (came out medium well) however, the management did remove the charge from our check.
Order their dessert available (a blondie) which is a non chocolate brownie. It came out hard as a rock. Actually, needed a cup of tea or coffee to dunk it into.

Returned to the Inn after a long period of time away. Food and service remain excellent. The pork shank was outstanding. The prices are downtown DC rates, but going mid week and looking for a deal brings the cost down to acceptable.

The Inn was beautiful. My crab soup was luke warm but delicious. The bread in the bread basket was hard as well as the bread on the sandwich that was ordered. No apologies for any of this. My crabcake was delicious as were the fries and succatash. When I went to the restroom strangely there was a man in the women's bathroom and there was no explanation. He had been dining with someone from the restaurant.

We went for anniversary dinner at 6 on a Saturday night. Jesse, the host, was friendly and immediately sat us at a window table in a long -windowed room with only a few other filled tables. We had a view of Sugar Loaf Mountain. The view was partially obstructed by a large wedding tent (no wedding that night). The other downside was that the window is facing west, so the sun setting made it very difficult to look out the window at the view or in that direction if you were with people seated that way. There were no tinted shades or tinted glass on the windows. Still, I was very happy with our table. Our server, Megan (sp?), was very friendly, efficient and attentive. We had the flat bread appetizer along with the warm rolls and sweet butter - all yummy. DH got the rib eye, which was very good. I got the Rockfish special. It was good but I had a bite with a few little bones and there were several scales left on the crispy-cooked skin. We didn't get dessert. DH had 2 beers; I had 2 wines - house Chardonnay, which I enjoyed. It was a filling and nice meal. Music was piped in but didn't over-power conversations.
The dining room was pretty full by the time we left. Staff is very friendly!! I would recommend going at lunch or before the sun is setting if you are lucky to get a seat in the room with the view. It was a bit pricey, but definitely nice for a special date night. Our Groupon discount was about the amount of our tip.

We were there with friends for Sunday brunch. All of us ordered the Eggs Benedict from among many choices. Two of us asked that the eggs be scrambled instead of the normally poached eggs. The Chef said "no problem" and everyone enjoyed the meal. Service was friendly and there's a lovely view of Sugarloaf Mountain. There is an outdoor patio though it was not set up on the day we were there. That would be fantastic on a nice day or evening. (I hope they would spray for mosquitoes.)
