    The Roycroft Inn is a very special place. We celebrated our son’s graduation there and were extremely pleased. Expertly made innovative cocktails and beautifully presented and delicious menu offerings. Its such a charming setting that you will not want to leave. We were the last to leave, and were still invited to amble through the different rooms. I am considering making a special trip to return to explore the area and stay overnight

    Food was wonderful and the service excellent. It was noisier than we expected for this class of restaurant. The only thing that was a little jarring was being referred to as you guys. Wish that language wasn’t quite so prevalent.

    The food was different for each of our party of five. Mine was hot and tasty. The steak was served cold and salt less to my son. The crab cakes and Caesar were marginal. No bread provided at all. my son ordered a glass of wine with dinner after cocktails, that did not arrive until after the meal. The service all round was terrible. The waiter disappeared for long periods of time. We ordered coffees for dessert. They came first and desserts 20-30 min later... no offer of refills. One of our party ordered a cappucino that was only 1/2 cup full. The waiter was pleasant but absolutely clueless about his inability to serve. He acted like he was the best waiter in the place and was actually training a new guy. I was expecting a lot more than we got. Celebrating early Mothers Day was very disappointing....

    The food was ok, we were not overwhelmed by it. There were too many beef type options, no chicken options. We are not beef eaters. We hope they continue to improve under the new ownership. There was an Art Show going on while we were there, we would have enjoyed, the staff should be able to provide information regarding the goings on at the campus.

    Korean chicken, prime rib and lamb were all delicious. Omelette served to us table side was great, no more waiting in line! Variety & taste of desserts is a plus. Mimosa and pointsettias are always welcome. Ambience at Roycroft is always stellar! Only criticism is having reservations desk staff in dual role of helping seat people. Reservation desk should be manned at all times. Overall great experience at brunch. Thank you!

    We just love going to the Roycroft for dinner and lunch. Your food and service are always wonderful. During this past restaurant week - oh my - the Filet was just outstanding and the desert wonderful - the perfect size actually after you have eaten a full meal.

    I have been going to the Roycroft for many years. I have always enjoyed my meals here until this one. I ordered the ribeye steak that was $60. It was the worst steak I have ever been served. Even the mashed potatoes and vegetables were marginal. So disappointed. Ended up paying $84. I brought home the leftovers but threw them away a day later. I’ve had my last meal here. The waitress was very nice and this was out of her control.

    The Sunday brunch offers a wide variety of food from breakfast items to carved roasts, salads, soup, and a number of desserts. There are several alcoholic libations included in the price, my favorite being the”poinsettia,” which is a combo of champagne and cranberry juice.

    Party of 5, special occasion. Ordered $60 filet meal. Way undercooked. Sent it back for additional cook time. 20 mins later it came back sliced and still undercooked. Bland at best, no seasoning. All sides were cold. David our server was nice enough. I dont try many new places for filet, and this kind of place is the reason why. Just a bad food experience. Our other 3 guests enjoyed their meals.

    Our server Amber was amazing! So was the busboy whose name we didn’t get (but he was friendly, accommodating, and very well trained). Our lunches were delicious and reasonably priced. We loved having the option of a sliver” sized dessert. A few in our group were disappointed not to find quiche on the menu as they were hoping to have that. We really enjoy coming to the Roycroft.

    We’ve been coming to the Roycroft for 30 years. I had my bridal shower there, have attended weddings, and have checked in for a weekend staycation. We’ve gone to dinner often. Lately, the quality of the food has definitely declined. We ordered crab cakes, French onion soup, and latkes with salmon as appetizers. The crab cakes were bland and the accompanying corn relish had a large piece of plastic in it. They gave us the appetizer for free once we let them know, but the appetizer was poorly made and tasteless. I asked for a goat cheese salad with a full duck breast (I paid $10 extra to get the duck breast) and they gave me half a poorly cooked duck breast. The fat cap on the duck breast was blubbery (they didn’t render it at all) and the meat itself was overcooked. The salad was wilted and bland. My husbands fish fry was good. My friends tomahawk pork chop was ok, but the sides were too sweet and also bland. What happened, Roycroft? I think the recent sale to a larger corporation is taking its toll. An historic and beautiful inn like the Roycroft should always have quality at the top of its priority list. Based on our last few experiences I’m reluctant to go back and waste my money on marginal food. It’s a shame, really. It may be a destination for out of town guests, but it’s also a hub of community. I feel like we lost a good restaurant. I hope this reaches someone who can take a long hard look at the feedback coming in and make some much-needed improvement before it’s too late.

    I had a great time at the Roycroft Inn. The staff was welcoming, friendly, and polite. The experience was great. I appreciate how my dining room was not overcrowded. It make my experience more pleasant that there was adequate room to move about for the brunch buffet without knocking into other patron's with plates or bumping chairs. I look forward to returning for a variety change in menu from winter/spring to spring and summer items. I did not know how to alert someone that the bacon selection had ran out, but there were plenty of options available and I am sure that it was refilled when I left the section.

    The food and service were both exceptional. Server and assistant went above and beyond to make it a special evening for our group. Personally I am celiac and need to maintain a gluten free diet. The Roycroft made it easy to find something and each course had options for me. Thank you so much for that!
