The food was excellent with decent choices for my vegan girl friend. Our waitress was outstanding and very helpful. We had a very romantic table by the fireplace and it was just an very enjoyable evening. It isn't cheep but you get what you pay for. Defiantly recommend for any evening dinning but special occasions are the best.

The Valentine Sparkler cocktail was delicious, while avoiding being overly sweet, despite the sugar cube in the bottom of the glass, the ginger liqueur gave it a very lovely taste. The surf and turf with béarnaise sauce was wonderful too. We enjoyed the fireplace and being able to speak to and hear each other, despite a good and lively crowd that evening.

It was our 1 year of marriage anniversary and we came back to the place where we got married. We received the exact table we sat at last year and had great service.

Chef has killed it with the Beer Battered Tofu. It was awesome and a great addition to the menu. As a vegetarian I appreciate chefs who are up to the challenge of a vegetarian meal. With this creation you are really on to something great. We also had the Harvest Vegetable Plate which is always good, but better than usual this time.

The Vanilla Creme Brûlée was amazing!

Management and Jenny took great care of us. Thank you for a wonderful anniversary dinner.

First time visit and was pleasantly surprised. The food was
excellent and enjoyed the ambiance. The swordfish was superb and the bread top notch. The cheesecake was a dream. Great service and a great spot. Is a good place to dine and quiet enough to carry on a conversation. Great wine selection. Will definitely go back.

This place would have been awesome if the food didn't suck. I did not feel well at all after eating here. I did NOT have the Beef Worthington, which may have been a mistake.

The food was, as always, very good. The waffle was better than that. Because we were brunching at 1:30, the restaurant had run out of its French toast and some of its salmon offerings. Service was friendly but VERY slow.

I was a little shocked that the service was so poor. I went to Sunday brunch with my family on 2/4/18 after attending a number of functions at the worthington inn. My daughters and I attended after church. All food items (waffle, south of the border bowl, calamari app and burger) were poor except for the crab cake Benedict. Even worst was the service. Our waitstaff was flustered and confused.

From beginning to end, the food was spectacular. The Covey Rise chicken was prepped perfectly and finishing the meal with the S'Mores creme brulee was a great decision. I love the revival of Olde Worthington Inn through its relationships with farmers and attention to the best ingredients. Excellent ingredients, artfully prepared, thank you

We went to the Worthington Inn for Restaurant week and ended up ordering off the regular menu, everything sounded so delicious! The service was great and the food was wonderful. I would definitely go back. It was also very romantic inside.
