 (Jacksonville)·Dined on December 3, 2017

I gifted a dinner Saturday night for my daughter and son in law. It was a very busy evening with many holiday activities going on in the town, but the service that evening was unexcusable. After a lengthy wait to be acknowledged once seated, and again another to receive the ordered calamari and French soup appetizer, the dinner order was never placed by the server and she was nowhere to be found after about a half hour wait AFTER the appetizers were finished. When she finally returned to the table , again about a half hour after the appetizers were done to inquire how her guests were doing, there were no dinner salads or dinners for that matter. She stated that she simply forgot to put their dinner orders in and because the kitchen was so busy, it would be about another 20-30 minutes for their dinner orders. At that point , my dtr and son in law told her the dinner orders could be cancelled, because they had to leave due to babysitting. No manager ever came to the table. No apologies. No compensation. It is a beautiful restaurant, but plan to spend the evening if their busy. They said the food was fine.

We were a little disappointed to have been seated in a secondary room not one of the nicer dining rooms. We had prompt service at first but after our soup was finished we probably waited 10-20 minutes for our main course. there was no apology for the wait. The food was good and nicely presented. Steak was great but the sides were just so-so. All-in-all, a good time except for the slowness of the meal arriving. I will say it was a busy night at the restaurant but folks at tables around us received their food before we did even though we ordered before them.

Great location and nice building, but the food was a very weak showing (the ravioli was swimming in a vaguely burnt butter sauce; the duck was draped over overly salted potato hash). Ultimately, the price was simply too high compared to far finer dining establishments within driving distance. I understand that this restaurant is in business by and for Denison, but I would expect a university of that caliber to really invest in inventive and reliable chefs and kitchen staff.

Dine before seeing a show at the midland theatre. Service was pleasant. Poor communication on our part the meal was bit rushed than needed. Tomato bisque was amazing. Also enjoyed the duck. Had children's menu and those portions were perfect

Went for Thanksgiving. Lovely place. BEAUTIFUL display of food. Very sweet server. But we were given a table with the sun laser beaming us in the face. (No window covering to lower) Had to ask to be moved. Also was surprised that hot foods were not hot. Gravy turkey potatoes stuffing were all lukewarm. At home I would have microwaved it to heat up! For the price would have expected hot food to be hot.

The Granville Inn is beautiful. The Oak Room was not open so we ate in an adjoining bar area. It was not very busy. The gluten free choices were not good. I had a rice, bean, corn bowl. It was very spicy and very expensive. I asked for the rice pudding for dessert, but they did not have any. We will not be going back. The next time we go to Granville, we are going to Whit's for ice cream.

Do not go if you don't have at least an hour to spend there. The the of us went and arrived 10 mins before the reservation. There was not many people there and no one waiting when we arrived. We were seated 15 mins later. It took 10 minutes for a server to arrive and take it drinks and another 10 before she came back to take our food order. Meanwhile two tables that arrived after us were able to get their orders in with another server. Our food arrived 20 mins later right after one of the two other tables got theirs. Food was delicious. Server only stopped by once to get refills and it was like pulling teeth.

This is one of the better restaurants in the Kenyon/Denison area. We enjoyed our meal and the service was very friendly but the room was so cold that it ruined the experience. While we mentioned it a few times to our waitress, it was never properly adjusted. The mushroom appetizer was good. Salads were just okay. I had the scallop entree and the scallops were very tasty but the side dish was rather blah. My husband really enjoyed his salmon - not overcooked - but again, he didn't care for the side. Our daughter had the lamb which was cooked properly. The dish itself was a bit ambitious. As good as it seems to get in this area of Ohio.

We had made reservations for Sunday brunch weeks before, but when we arrived and we're seated we had to wait almost 15 minutes just to see a waitress, even though many were around. They appeared a little unorganized! Otherwise, our food was very good and the service became better.

Though I wanted a 6:30 dinner time, only thing apparently available was 5:45 or 8:00. I took the 5:45, but there were several tables open when we left at around 7:00. Guess I can't figure out why I couldn't get the time I wanted.

Brother & sister-in-law visiting from out of state. We had tasty meals. The Tavern was not busy. My sister-in-law's grilled cheese with veggies included toasted, rather than grilled bread and mostly raw red pepper that she couldn't eat. No beverage refill until we finished dining. Couldn't even get the server's attention. It's the little things that make the difference between a good and great experience.

Another excellent meal at the Granville Inn. We love the Monday night wine and dine special. It's a great value in a great atmosphere . We had incredible service as usual from Wendy . She always makes the dining experience that much better . I had the mushroom Ragu appetizer and the crab Louie entrée both were delectable and I consumed every morsel !

Our first visit in many years since a renovation. A beautiful, historic place. We visited on a Saturday evening and the dining room wasn't completely full when we arrived, but did fill up. Our food was very good and exactly as ordered, however our service was very slow, particularly between appetizers and main course - a total of about 2.5 hours for 2 people(?). Fortunately, we did not have tickets/another place to be afterward. Will likely revisit one day, but not very soon.

One night get away with my wife. The Inn and Oak Room Restaurant are excellent. Atmosphere is very romantic and the food was excellent. I had the Scallops and my wife had the Steak Diane. We shared a Blackberry Cobbler which was to die for! The only reason I did not give 5 stars was due to the air conditioning. We were seated at a nice table under a window at the back of the room. The AC vent was above us and when it kicked on there was quite a bit of air flow. The waitress was trying her best to short cycle the flow by adjusting the thermostat but it was still very noticeable. It never became uncomfortable so would not consider it a major issue. We will definitely try to come back as we really enjoyed our stay and meal.

I had to put a napkin around myself to stay warm!!! We then went on the patio so we could talk after the meal. The waitress indicated she couldn't turn down air-conditioning.

We waited 20 minutes for anyone to come to our table.
We waited 35 minutes after we placed our order for the food. The waitress was congenial but it seemed she was too busy to attend to us in a timely manner. It was about 25 minutes after we got the food before we saw the waitress again.Chicken salad tauted as Lazarus' recipe was very disappointing. The portion was small and the chicken was very tough. There was not enough dressing. Not near the quality chicken salad that Lazarus made.
We had taken our friends there for a birthday celebration and were embarrassed by the poor service and quality of the food.
