    This place is a hidden gem in the local neighborhood it represents. I LOVE Scottish breakfast dishes and their oatmeal pancakes are right on point. Could they publish the recipe for that dish?

    This was our most disgusting restaurant experience ever. We had a confirmed reservation and showed up exactly on time. The owner kicked us out as he had a wedding in the back. I showed him the written confirmation he didn’t care. Had a fake I apologize on his lips but didn’t offer to rebook, didn’t offer a drink just didn’t care. 30 minutes drive wasted each way. What a jerk. As a side note to Open Table you can’t book a backup as you can’t cancel the old reservation after start time.

    I loved Lumber Baron. Our meal included the best trout and best trout that I have ever had. The steak was perfectly cooked and the Scottish dessert of whipped cream, fruit, honey and brandy was good without being to sweet. We will definitely go back.

    We had an enjoyable culinary evening. The chef prepared a 5 course meal of his choice. He then selected several wines to pair with each course. Our party was two couples looking for a unique dining experience. The place didn't disappoint.

    AMAZING in every way. We were looking for a quiet place with great food in or near the Highlands to catch up with friends. Highlands and quiet dining don't exactly go together... until last night. If you book dinner at The Lumber Baron you get a private chef for the night. Tasting menu with wine pairings kept coming and it was hard to decide which course was better than the one before it. We were just two couples (sitting in the fabulous round table in the front) but we want to go back with a large group where we'd have room and conditions to really catch up with friends. And one glance at the Sunday Brunch menu and that became a Bucket List to do also. Don't miss this one! It's like hosting a dinner party with a private chef but in the coolest venue you'll ever find!

    Last night we celebrated our friend Sandy’s birthday at Lumber Baron Inn and it was incredible. Not only is the space a beautiful restored Victorian Bed & Breakfast from the early 19th century that delights at every turn with charm but the food was incredible too. Joel created an amazing 5-course menu that impressed us through each and every course. The service was stellar, Joel was an incredible host and the food was exquisite. I highly recommend...especially if you want something special. We plan to go back and try for brunch.

    This historic mansion is worth going to just because it is gorgeously restored. The owner was our waiter and gave us a tour after our meal. Lunch was good. Not great but good and it was surprisingly inexpensive. The accompanying salad was arugula so for some people not enticing. I like arugula but this was nearly all arugula with a horse radish flavored dressing that was too generously applied. Main courses were quite fine.

    We enjoyed a Sunday, Easter brunch at the Lumbar Baron Inn. Prior to our meal they had an egg hunt for the kids who were present. The staff was pleasant and the food was very tasty. The best part was the ambiance of this old, historic mansion. I am looking forward to going back and trying out their afternoon tea with my friends.

    We went for Valentines Day with a pre-fixed menu so maybe another night might be better, but we won’t likely give it another try nonetheless. The best thing we had was the halibut entree, followed by the steak; however, the halibut was covered in an arugula sauce that had way too much garlic in it and the steak was accompanied by a single prawn, not de shelled and way over cooked. One of the desserts had a crust that was so hard it could not be cut or eaten. Pretty building inside and out makes for unique ambiance, but not worth the rest.

    When we noticed the Lumber Baron Inn on opentable we were very excited. We always wanted to see the inside and booked it for that reason alone. What we didn't expect was the food, the staff, & the new owners to be so amazing. We will definitely be back for not only brunch again, but also their wine nights as it sounds like an awesome experience too!

    Fortunate enough to live in the same city as the Lumbar Baron Inn. I thought the history of the home was unique, and to be able to have a lovely brunch was a bonus! Joel, the property manager, is such a people person. He is a lively soul and made us feel at home; and we were not even B&B guests, just invading for brunch. I hope to be able to take more friends and family here. One of the people I was with is now planning to have his retirement party here, if able to.

    At $25 a meal for an open buffet plus made to order omelet station our overall experience was pretty good. However we dined for the mothers day brunch... No price difference were posted on their website, in person or when they called to confirm our reservation. So needless to say we were surprised when our bill came and it was $40 a person. At that price! It definitely was not worth it. The food was good and there was a nice selection. The service was friendly and helpful and very accommodating to our small child. Am I running back for another meal? No. Would I try their afternoon tea, sure! So just a note if you are planning to go for a special occasion or holiday make sure you check the prices before hand!
