We dined outdoors in the middle of a rainstorm, which then turned into a thunderstorm! The restaurant has a covered patio available for outdoor dining, which provided ample protection from the outdoor elements - until of course the wind kicked up. My husband and I still prefer to eat outdoors, but the server kindly offered us an indoor table multiple times. Food was, as always, delicious. The staff was courteous and helpful. Will certainly be back in the near future.

Solid experience. Wait staff was friendly and efficient. Generally all good though our expectations were very high and the overall experience came in below that.

Great good, service and nice coppus fans on the patio. Great for a special occasion. Special birthday celebration was treated as such by the staff. Wooden chairs on the patio were a little rough, but it did not decrease the overall experience! I would recommend to consider it for your next special occasion! Great speciality cocktails as well! Huge wine list!

I was very disappointed in the interior design. I expected it to be historic. The food was excellent. Service was excellent, but I feel whoever designed the renovation was not thinking clearly. it could have been updated but kept in the 18 th century; example: when historic buildings in Europe are restored, they must keep in the original design.

Food was good, service was mediocre at best. Very little effort put forth in providing a good customer experience. The lack of effort and lack of basic service attention/tactics was reflected in the tip. We are tired of paying for and rewarding poor service.

The Pluckemin Inn is a special place for dining whether you eat inside or out. The food is fabulous, service impeccable and drinks delicious. There is a regular menu and specials for the day. It’s definitely worth a trip but can be a bit pricey.

We went for a leisurely late lunch outside on a beautiful day. It was pleasant but not outstanding. We rated one of the several dishes we ordered (a shrimp starter) 5 stars, the others 3 or 4. The ambiance was pleasant, although you are aware of being between a parking lot and a highway and close to both. The service was slow and not particularly attentive. The waiter arrived with check in hand when asking if we wanted to see the dessert menu, for example. Although I had indicated in the OpenTable reservation that the occasion was a birthday, and the woman who phoned to confirm the reservation mentioned this without prompting, it was never mentioned during the lunch itself.

I like the food and the bar here. Not inexpensive but the food and service is very good. Been there for lunch only a few times. They have tables setup in their front patio parking space but have managed to create a nice ambiance.
Extensive wine list or their cocktails are great too. Give it a shot, you will not be disappointed.

Dinner with friends seated outside. The space was attractive with lights strung around and in the trees. Large fans circulated the still night air. Servers were attentive. The food was fresh, delicious, and presented well. Portion sizes perfect to enjoy an appetizer, dinner and dessert. I real treat!

We sat outside on a hot night but were very comfortable with the shade. They've made the outdoor setting very inviting. The food as always was perfectly prepared and interesting. Soft shell crab -yay! The wait staff were attentive and fun. My only complaint is the chairs were uncomfortable but luckily I had a shawl in the car I could sit on.
