Couldn't have been more accommodating! Every meal was outstanding- salmon perfect with amazing sauce, lobster rosotto was heavenly, beef done exactly to order, chicken so delicious it was hard to believe it was chicken. And it was a quiet beautiful setting! Highly recommend![

The Roycroft Inn is a unique place to celebrate a special occasion or just to have a quiet meal during the week. The food was awesome & the atmosphere is always spectacular, whatever the season. Everyone should experience dinning at The Roycroft Inn at least once in their life. Highly recommend this restaurant.

Most of the food was very good. Desserts were great. I would of loved to have a tossed salad but veggies were very limited. The prime rib was way to raw for our taste. Everyone at our table gave it a try but ended up not eating it. Service was great. I felt the brunch was rather pricey. Will likely give the brunch another try some time in the future.

This was my first brunch at the Roycroft and it was for a very special occasion. I booked online telling them that I’d like a special table for a special occasion and they accommodated every request I made. The live music was exquisite. The selection and quality of the food offerings were amazing. The brunch cocktails including the poinsettia and the flavor of the coffee were delicious. The service was impeccable and friendly. They even assisted with our early check-in to the hotel which was important to me. It was the best brunch I’ve ever had. I definitely recommend sitting in front of the fireplace in the winter. It was perfect.

We made a reservation for four on New Years Eve. We were seated within 10 minutes of our arrival. Everything was very good on this night despite the large number of people also dining out and celebrating. Our waiter was very attentive and informative. Our food came out in a timely manner and was very good. Desserts were excellent. A very memorable evening.

We had Rawley as our waiter, who could not have taken better care of us. Our service was wonderful, as we ate on Christmas day, I was worried that it would be far to busy for us to have quality service, that was not a problem. Every server had a smile on their face constantly, they were in great spirits, and provided a wonderful experience for our family. We greatly enjoyed our time there and will be returning!

Christmas Brunch at the Roycroft was FANTASTIC! We've already made reservations to return for Easter! Mark and Katherine were amazing hosts/servers. This was our first time visiting the Roycroft. What a gem. We'd travelled from Rochester, and it was so worth the drive (even on the icy roads). Thank you, Roycroft, for a wondrous holiday meal!!!

While you can't beat the ambiance of The Roycroft we were quite disappointed in our meals. Our table of 8 all took advantage of the burger and pint special. Our french fries were at best room tempreture hamburgers were warm.Quite disappointing not sure why with all of us ordering the same meal, fries were not hot.
Service was good our water glass was never empty, John did an excellent job with keeping them refilled. Nice selection of brews, no disappointment there.

We had a gathering of 15 ladies who are friends and family to celebrate the holidays. The food was great, lots of choices, and the desserts awesome. We just wish the string quartet was in the dining room with all the customers rather than the food buffet area. Everyone was impressed and will be back . The waitress went out of her way to help us and wAs so pleasant.

Reservation was made on 9 /7/17. At arrival we were told table would be ready in a few minutes, 25 minutes passed before seating. Table was on a servers path, and very cold and drafty as it was near a outside door. Restaurant was clearly understaffed for a holiday and the number of people in the facility even though it was buffet service. We got no service from our waitress unless we specifically caught her attention. While this is not what I have come to expect from this establishment especially since we were paying $42. per person, it was very disappointing as I had out of town guests for the holiday. The food was excellent, but the table service left much to be desired. I am not sure that in the future, I would recommend the Roycroft for dinner on a holiday.
