Drove down from Gettysburg for Saturday lunch. Beautiful location with Sugarloaf Mountain dominating the view. Jesse, the maître d, was superb. Wait staff was excellent. I can't wait to return. Sugarloaf Winery and Sugarloaf Mountain Park are a very short drive from the Inn.

Were the peaches fresh as described? Seemed canned or cooked. That’s my only complaint. Wonderful food and service, otherwise. Our favourite spot.

Food: main courses were very good with ample portions; appetizers and snacks were creative and generally outstanding (stuffed dates, caprese) although the grilled oysters were small. Smores dessert was excellent.
Service: excellent table service from our waiter, although timing between courses from kitchen was a tad slow.
Staff: Maitre'd (Jesse): Awesome, very personable and welcoming. He is a gem. Had called earlier in the week to modify our reservation and request a window seat, and the woman on the phone was curt and "couldn't guarantee" that, so my expectations based on that encounter were lessened, but Jesse made up for that when we arrived.
The manager was also somewhat arrogant in his interaction with one of the guests in our party, but since that guest was rather provocative I will say that some of the blame for that was our guest.
The view of Sugarloaf was amazing.
Overall, it was worth going back after twenty years.

Although a little pricey, we love Comus Inn. We went there for my birthday dinner and they never disappoint. The food is very good. The owner always makes us feel special. He comes to our table to talk with us and the maitre d (Jesse) is so welcoming and friendly. We love dining on the “porch” where we can clearly see Sugarloaf Mountain and watch the sunset. So pretty. My husband wants to go back next month for his birthday.

Arrived in terrible rain to solicitous hostess. Table set and ready where we requested on the porch with gorgeous view of Sugarloaf in the mist. Heard them offer umbrellas to departing guests. Service was friendly and the perfect combo of attentive and invisible. Meal was fabulous. Best filet ever for flavor, tenderness and presentation. Standard summer veg raised to sumptuous. Who knew zucchini had that in them. 5 stars plus for the whole evening.

I reserved because I remember the old Comus Inn and was not aware of new ownership. I drove a long distance and arrived early and was told I could not enter and have a drink. I searched for the coffee shop recommended and never found it. The dinner was OK, although the prices are bit high. Our server did all he could to make us happy.

The sunset was lovely.

We were celebrating a 20th wedding anniversary. I guess our fault for choosing this restaurant but thought the view would be nice and it had decent reviews. We had requested a table with a nice view but were seated against a wall away from the window. There was no mention or recognition of our celebration milestone on the part of restaurant in any way. Our entrees were good but overpriced for this type of venue maybe if we were downtown fine. The rest of the meal was very average to below average pasty cloverleaf rolls and way under baked bordering on raw cookie dough blonde for dessert that had coconut all over it which wasn’t mentioned. Can’t recommend it and don’t plan to ever return.

New menu roll out so we were there. Between four of us we shared the summer crab salad and bourbon and bleu salad, both are delicious. Stuffed dates were to die for and the fried green tomatoes are yummy.
Entree's, again shared were the Greek Chicken, Duroc Pork Tenderloin, Cornmeal Dusted Trout and the Cauliflower Steak. Amazing flavors from all. Super new menu! Compliments to the chef.

Last week I made a reservation at the Comus Inn for two persons for noon on May 20th by email and voicemail, and then called the next day to make sure the reservation was received. A staff member confirmed that the reservation was received and recorded as requested including the window table.This was a very special occasion and I wanted to make sure of the day, time and seating. My oldest friend and I were to celebrate a very special occasion.

We arrived at about a quarter to noon. The manager acknowledged the reservation and took us to a table for two not at a window. At the time, half of the tables at the windows were empty. I noted that a man and a woman were at one of those window tables. I told the manager that the reservation was for a window table. He refused to seat us there and offered a table for two at the wall. I said I had indicated our preferred seating with the reservation. He replied that it was policy not to allow reservations for window tables and that it was first come first serve, despite the fact that there were empty window tables and that he had already seated a couple at one of those windows tables for four.

His tone was disrespectful and rude and his explanation was not reasonable. At my insistence he seated us finally at a window table but the unpleasantness had spoiled what was to be a very special occasion for me and my friend.

Finally, a word about the food we had. The crab meat that was part of the Eggs Benedict did not taste fresh and the taste and smell of it overwhelmed the taste of any of the other ingredients. The chocolate cake desert was also not very tasty. The mousse parts were overly sugary and the cake part was an overly chewy consistency.
