Thanksgiving Day dinner was lovely. We weren't rushed. The food was excellent. No loud music. One caveat about the fixed price menu -- nothing chocolate among the dessert choices.

We had Thanksgiving dinner at this restaurant tow or three years ago and the food and service were remarkably good. So good, in fact, that we really wanted to do it again.
However, this time the food was remarkably good and the service was abysmal. We were seated in the same small dining area that we sat in last time. However, this time the server was quite attentive to the one other table in our area, but we felt invisible. It took 20 minutes and a trip to the manager to get someone to come and bring us water. Twice we had to shout at the server as he was quickly leaving the room in order to make our needs known. We ended up having the fourth of our four course dinner (dessert) boxed and had to take it with us.
This experience was a real disappointment for the two of us.

We loved the Inn at Brookeville Farm - it was very quiet and contemplative and we made it to the Olney Theatre in time for our performance.

The service and attention to detail was tremendous. Our meal was terrific. The wild mushroom and onion soup was the best I have ever had. The calamari was cooked to perfection. We would recommend The Brookville Inn to our friends.

The food was delicious except for the undercooked beans. Love the atmosphere it has a very elegant and personal touch. The waiter was very knowledge he was able to fully explain the menu. When I asked for a suggestion he gave me awesome advice. My only recommendation is new carpet. It looks very outdated. I would consider having my wedding venue there but that carpet has to go.

It's been several years since we ate here. We had a guest in from out of town and wanted to take her somewhere special.

Nicely decorated old house. The lighting was rather garish [spot lights in our eyes ]. There seemed to be 2 different sound tracks going on ... one was 60s and 70s classic rock [I liked it], but there was other music at the same time.

Food was so so. The lobster and shell fish looked interesting, but nothing special.

One of us has the fish [sea bass?] With Chile pepper and coconut sauce ... a very Thai like sauce. The preparation was a water of a good piece of fish.

The pork pasta dishes was good, as where the salad [with pecans and blue cheese] and the biscuits.

Service was good. They DID call ahead to see if all in the party could handle stairs Oakdale saved us a table down stairs.

Bottom line: it will be several years before we will be going back. Menu is limited, dishes are OK [not great ].

Food was VERY mediocre. Fried calamari portion deceived with fried onion rings. White wine served initially in two ounce glasses. When questioned about portion we were served our second glass in a normal four ounce serving white wine glass. Again, deception. The soups were horrible. Would not return again.

The building and grounds are wonderful and make for a nice outing. The greeters are very good. Wait staff good, sometimes slow, but depends on if there is a group in the event room, perhaps. The food is fresh, good quality, with nice presentation, but seems to lack in flavor. It could benefit from more sauces or other added flavor. I ordered a malbec that ended up being a dud. In part my fault on the selection, but there should be no duds on the list, especially at $10/glass.

Inn at Brookville Farms has a delicious brunch. My smoked salmon omelet was both puffy and crisp, perfectly cooked bacon, great hash browns. My friend says the blueberry pancakes were perfect. Fun to look out the window and see the bridal parties arrive for their events.

Came for there brunch first time. Bloody Mary served with no lime or lemon or straw. The eggs benedict were well done. The egg was hard boiled. Chef should know how to make those!

My Husband and I were married at the Inn 5 years ago and decided to come back for dinner to celebrate our anniversary. Once again we were not disappointed. Everything was wonderful on our wedding day and it was wonderful again this weekend!

The Inn at Brookeville Farm has received a wide range of reviews online. Our experience Sept. 6 was very good overall: both crab/calamari with pasta and the "small plate" (4 oz. beef tenderloin) were delicious. The small plate dinner was VERY small (aside from the meat): about 1/4 cup of mashed potato and spinach. And while the biscuits (one each) were hot and quite tasty, would it hurt (at those prices) to serve 2 per person? (The menu noted that there would be a charge for additional bread.) They did honor a request for the 2 of us to share a mixed greens salad, which was also to our liking. Service was good - don't know if that was because we were the only patrons in the diningroom at an early hour...

My wife and I reserved a table for dinner at the Inn at Brookeville Farms on a Saturday evening. Our dinner was delicious, but the rest of the experience was very disappointing. Evidently, most of the building was rented for a wedding, and the music and DJ were incredibly loud and raucous. Despite the music being several rooms over from us, we had a difficult time holding a conversation between the two of us. We did not come to the Inn at Brookeville Farms to feel like we were eating at a club. This was our first time dining here and probably our last.

This restaurant is situated in a refurbished older home in a lovely country setting. Food was excellent. Wait staff was excellent. Our only concern was feeling a bit rushed by the bus boy to clear the table when one of us was still eating. Overall was a good exprience & would definitely return there.

Restaurant is a lovely old building. Servers seem to have no clue on service. Pouring regular coffee into cup of decaf is not good. Disappearing after serving food - not good. Charging 6 dollars extra for a few pieces (four) of bread - NOT GOOD. Serving all well done eggs - no good. "over easy" means that it gets fried on both sides, but the yolk stays runny. Scrambled is not the same as easy over or well done. The chef needs to learn to cook more than one type of egg

I like old inns, so I decided to try The Inn at Brookeville for brunch with friends. My review is a combination of all of our feedback. Two of us loved the charm of being in an old inn, though one friend found it "creepy" The pancakes were soggy. The frittata was better, and nicely spiced. The service was wonderful I can't say enough good things about our waiter. I had to drive 30 minutes to get there, which I wouldn't have minded if the food was good. I wouldn't go back, but think that people should try it for themselves to see what their experience is. One friend had been there before and had a positive experience and was happy to go back.

There is not a nicer place to enjoy a long lovely brunch. It was so nice to be able to sit and talk , and really enjoy the whole experience. It is a beautiful place, with a wonderful staff, and very good food. If you want a special place to sit and visit, while dining on terrific food, this is the place for you.

I've had dinner here several times and they are average to good, however the brunch for Mother's Day was very disappointing. For $48 + tax + tip per person there was very little selection and nothing was very good outside of the omeletts. The quality and selection was similar to a mediocre brunch you get at chain hotels.

My husband and I took our mothers here for a Mother's Day dinner the night before Mother's Day. Service was Excellent!!! The food was amazing. It's hard to find a restaurant that cooks calamari correctly ( doesn't over cook it and make it chewy) and they definitely nailed it!!! It was cooked perfectly!! All of our meals were excellent and the dessert was even better. Definately would recommend this place. Even the prices weren't bad for what you got!

We love being in this great old place, but the food is so-so. Wait staff is very nice. Prices suggest the food could be a little more generous and tasty. Given all the older people who eat here, I'm surprised there isn't a better selection of teas.

Perfect service and food, down to the details. I reserved through OpenTable. The restaurant checked back with me to be sure I knew it was a buffet. The OpenTable florist double-checked with me to be sure that the name I gave the florist would match the reservation at the restaurant. These are great ways to pro-actively assure that minor glitches don't ruin an occasion. We arrive early, and only waited a few minutes, which we discovered was so that the restaurant could bring the flowers to our table to be there when we sat down. Another very thoughtful detail. Lovely restaurant and grounds, with beautiful artwork, much of which can be purchased. Our waiter was friendly, prompt, and well-informed. He offered services and information that we didn't think to ask, and he returned often to check on us. We could see he was attentive to all his tables. We both had the not-too-sweet delicious pomegranate mimosas, yum! The buffet was varied and delicious. Perfectly prepared seafood cioppino over jasmine rice. Perfectly tender lamb and ham carving station. Quick friendly omelet station for early brunch, and pasta station for later brunch. We came at the change-over, so we enjoyed a little of each. We while were at the end of breakfast, and the breakfast food was still fresh and hot. A wonderful crunchy seedy ciabatta bread was a favorite for us. Several nice desserts, and a heavenly chocolate mousse in a chocolate and white chocolate tulip shell! My oh my!! We'll happily return, and look forward to dining on the patio some time.

Food was uniformly outstanding; wines available by the glass, alas, are mediocre. Our busboy was very nervous (new? not sufficiently trained?) and dropped used silverware, almost in my lap.

The staff was friendly and attentive without being overbearing . The restaurant was very accomodating with the corkage fee and chilling when I wanted to bring an outside wine. The restaurant is broken down into many smaller dining births for greater privacy and warmth. My wife thoroughly enjoyed her Valetine's Day surpirse and talked about The Inn all the way home. We'll be back.
