    The Sunday brunch was wonderful with a wide variety of food options. Also included were unlimited Bloody Mary's and Mamosas. A great value at $36. Service was great and you can't beat the historic ambiance of The Roycroft Inn!

    Table was ready when we arrived. Service was very attentive but not overbearing. Our order and drinks came in reasonable time. Food was hot, if applicable. Portions were more than adequate. Prices were what I expect at a fine dining restaurant in our area. Our Server and her Busser were the icing on the cake!

    First my fiance has celiac, and it's hard to find places she feels comfortable to eat. The roycroft inn can prepare 90% of its menu gluten free, so we would come back here even for just that. However, the atmosphere of this restaurant is so warm and cozy. We went during the winter and they have a fireplace going in the library. It's a warm and cozy place for a lovely date. And then the food. My fiance had the salmon and that was delicious. I had the red wine braised ribs, one of the best meals I've had in a long time. The food reminds me of, if you got an old English pub and made it upscale. The sizes of the meals are perfect and flavor just smacks you. If you have the opportunity to go here please do.

    Very nice approachable restaurant with great atmosphere. No baseball hats! Staff was well dressed and very pleasant with a good sense of humor. Customers were respectful of neighboring tables. Conversations were subdued. Dress was nice casual. The food was impeccable as usual. Salmon had a nice char and lightly flaky. Short ribs were perfectly done and flavorful. The Manhattans were nicely put together with extra bitters as requested and my strait-up version was a nice pour. Wine choices were generous as were the glasses. Prices were very nice! We have enjoyed The Roycroft in the past and it is one of our favorite places to dine!

    My husband and I had been here several times and I loved it. It reminded me of other states who a similar brunch. Unfortunately, this time I was very disappointed. What was available for the brunch was a quarter of what they have had in the passed. I could hardly cut the deconstructed beef wellington was so bad I couldn't hardly cut the beef to eat it. There were no vegetables to chose from other then two types of salad. Let's just put it this way unfortunately I will not be going back again.

    Arrived early, bartender was super nice, hostess that seated us was also pleasant, table service was average. Ordered Filet tenderloin, was not given a steak knife, she said she would give me one, had to stop her and ask again after maybe 5 minutes. had an empty drink when served, was not asked if I wanted another. Waitresses in the library seemed more concerned with the people at one one particular table than anyone else.

    Far exceeded expectations! We went for the Monday Prix Fixe dinner and found everything to be of very high quality. I loved my caesar salad, vegan curry (large enough portion to take half of it home), and beautifully garnished chocolate cake. Came with bread and little extras like pesto and tomato salad. Good and reasonably priced wine selections. The setting is lovely and we were seated right in front of the fire on a cold night. Highly recommend!

    There’s just nothing like it. I got to sit in the quiet fireplace room (the library) enjoying dinner with my adult children for two hours. It’s luxurious without breaking the bank, and the service and ambience are impeccable.
