We have always loved Comus. Their food is delicious and always on point. I highly recommend the carb hush puppies. We were there for my husband’s birthday and they surprised us with a treat for him. And since we were on an adult date night, they did not mind us taking our time with every course.

Beautiful room overlooking Sugarloaf Mountain. Fancy China and lovely setup BUT kitchen misplaced our order. We waited for over an hour and yes wine was given free as compensation .... Time is money and our afternoon plans were shot. My own order was only OK. All around it was a disappointment. It will be awhile before we dine there again.

We were there for Thanksgiving dinner. Gave us a terrible table, oddly shaped that made it difficult to carry a conversation. Took 20 minutes for a waitress to come by. Ordered a bottle of wine. 20 minutes later they came back and said they didn’t hVe it. Took another 10 minutes to get the replacement. Buffet food was good, better than expected, but a bit expensive at $50 per serving. Overall less than I hoped for.

Been to Comus Inn previously. Always has been an exceptional place - good food, good ambiance, good scenery of Sugarloaf Mt.

Would not recommend on special occasions when they only serve their overpriced buffets. We went there for Thanksgiving. When we went to the buffet tables, I started with a salad. Good salad selection, but their carafes of dressing were empty. Only after I mentioned they were out of salad dressing did they refill the carafes - took over 5 minutes. Then went to the main food line. The dressing tray was empty - took them 10 minutes to provide another tray. As I made my way done the food line, the ham tray and sweet potato trays were empty too and it took 5 minutes to restock the trays with food.
Obviously they could not keep pace with the people they were serving. Very disappointing. What was more disappointing was when I finally was able to get some rosemary sage dressing - it was bland with no taste.

Comus Inn has always been an exceptional place when I go there for dinner . But when it comes to them serving buffets on special occasions, they don’t do well in serving the large crowds.

Great place for dinner. The food and presentation were excellent. The trout and the salmon were perfect. If you like crab,you will love the crab hush puppies for an appetizer. Wonderful wine and mixed drink menu.

The atmosphere of the restaurant is like an old inn in the country. The owner and the staff are very accommodating and make you feel especially welcome to be joining them. The food can match any of the best restaurants without having the cold expense account feel.

I very much recommend the Comus Inn. You will not be disappointed.

The Comus Inn is a beautiful restaurant very close to Sugarloaf Mountain. Not much else is nearby. I recommend going after a hike on the mountain and/or after visiting the Sugarloaf Mountain Winery. Then that makes the drive really worth it!

The Comus Inn is quite expensive, so I recommend going only as a special occasion. And make sure to bring a change of clothes if you do plan to go after a hike! It's very fancy, so you want to dress appropriately.

We ALWAYS have a wonderful dining experience at Comus Inn! From the moment we are greeted at reception by Jesse and the manager, to being shown to our table, the staff is extremely attentive. We love coming here to celebrate special occasions as the experience never disappoints.
The menu offers familiar favorites as well as unique and delicious selections. The only recommendation would be to offer more selections for those with dietary restrictions.
Our server was knowledgeable and provided helpful suggestions.
The only negative, and it is a small one, would be to make reservations during the week when a wedding is more unlikely. The tent obscures the view, and the parking can be difficult as a result.

The Comus Inn is a wonderful place. HOWEVER THE PORTION SIZE IS MUCH TOO LARGE! I had the Muffuletta Sandwich and I could not open my mouth wide enough to eat it--and I am a large person! I had to resort to a knife and fork and only ate 50% of it. My friend had the Fried Green Tomato BLT. She was able to handle 1/2 of it with a knife and fork and brought the other half home.

I recognize that some Restaurants try to make up for a lack of quality by serving big portions. The Comus Inn doesn't have to do that.

Our waitress was very cheerful and offered to box up my parent's leftovers.
When we first arrived the air conditioning vent was making it very chilly by my chair. The hostess brought over some extra menus to cover the vent to make my seat much more comfortable. First class service and food was wonderful and presentation was lovely. Kind of pricey for everyday dinners but great date night or special occasions.

No view! Large wedding tent blocked the view! Service was slow but Sunday brunch was not very busy. Took 5-7 minutes just to be acknowledged, then we only got water. I would of liked to put my cocktail order in. Our appetizer came later after we were already eating our entree. Will not return. Very disappointed! They only seem to care about weddings, not individual customers.

We love dining at the Comus Inn. The portions are large; we split a soup, an entree and a side. The entire bill, which included one non-alcoholic drink, came to $58 after tax. The view of Sugarloaf Mountain, the outstanding service and scrumptuous menu make this locale worth the drive.

Disappointing! Place is expensive and not worth the money. Location is in the country with a view of Sugarloaf but the view is mainly obstructed because a large wedding tent is directly in front of the windows, so for the most part you see tent roofing. Host is rude, we asked to be reseated to a different table but the host refused even though the restaurant was at best a third full. The table provided was in a high traffic area and the table was jammed against the wall, so we were uncomfortable before the meal even began. We were told that our waitress was too busy to attend to us initially, and so a different person came to take the drink order. The person was unfamiliar with their cocktail selection and when asked what one of the drinks contained she provided us with a wrinkled piece of paper from the bar for us to read. It took 15 minutes to get the drinks. Waitress eventually came but never introduced herself and did not bother making us aware of any of the specials. Appetizers were good, however the entrée (Bistro steak) had a strange taste (and not in a good way), when asked what kind of a cut it was we were told that it was local meat and perhaps we were just unfamiliar with what local beef tasted like. When ordering a $38 dollar steak I expect it to taste like a steak.

We went for dinner with sunset over Sugarloaf Mt. Don't bother to go for a view. They have a party tent over the patio blocking the view. We were told the tent is up most of the fall for weddings.

I had read that there were great views but alas, there was a large event tent up and that is all we could see from our table. That was disappointing. The food was good but I think our server had 1 table more than she could handle efficiently. Not sure if any of this is the norm.
