Winsor House Inn Ratings and Reviews
Food was very good as usual. First time there on a Saturday (6:00 reservation). It got really noisy by 6:30 and hard to have conversation. Some inconsistencies: Same drink ordered twice and second time 2 x larger than the first. Waiter said it was a different bartender (her favorite). Also I love the charred Shishito Peppers appetizer. Had them a few weeks ago with 2 friends and had a good size serving with more than enough for 3 to share. Had them this last time and only had about half the amount. Otherwise a good evening. I would go back.
We arrived at the Winsor House and were greeted by a friendly hostess, who welcomed us and said Happy Birthday. We should have left then, because that was the LAST positive experience of the evening out. We were seated in a room with a couple of other tables that were occupied. Servers came in and out of the room, but ignored us for 15 minutes. Then someone came and filled our water glasses. No introduction, no explanation. He did take our drink order and told us our server would be along. She brought our drinks, and again, no greeting, no introduction. We ordered starters, which were delivered by teen age boy who said” where do you want this?”. Not a nice experience. When the main courses arrived, the young man had no idea which person should be served which entree. Again, he asked “Who gets this?” We ordered another round of drinks, and the waitress brought 1 and said something about bringing the rest later!
We declined dessert, which I was e cited about because it was my birthday, and coffee and left. I emailed The Winsor House and have had NO response.
I will never return and I am going to discourage anyone to choose The Winsor House Inn for any occasion.
I went to the Winsor House for dinner with 4 friends a few nights ago and everything was perfect. We were originally going to sit in the carriage house but instead had a beautiful spot in the dining room. We were in a corner by ourselves with a fire going close by. We completely had our privacy and felt like we were in our own private dining room. Dinner was excellent! Everyone raved about their entrees....crab cakes, fish tacos and scallops. I had the chicken(can't remember the name) but it was lightly breaded with salad and fresh grated parm on top. It was THE BEST! Service was excellent...very fast and a cheerful pleasant server. We actually had such a good time that we were 2nd to last to leave. Highly recommend the Winsor House!
Enjoyed the ambiance and service. The Manager Ann was very hospitable, our server, Jamie, was top notch.
The food was good, there was a problem with one entre the steak Fritz. We ordered rare and it came well done. Ann offered to replace it,but we did not want to wait.
Seems the chef does not listen to wait staff requests. The steak was also disappointing in that we thought it would be a small steak,instead it was very tough steak tips.
We were concerned when we read the reviews from the last few months. However, none of the complaints were seen while we were there on this busy Saturday night! Service was great, we were seated quickly and asked bar or dining room (too cold for outside), etc. We did notice the menu change, but were surprised by the number of full meals available after what we read. And the size of the servings were certainly back to normal. So, may be there were some problems but they do not seem to be there any longer. Excellent evening. The clams, scallops and steak were fabulous and outstanding.
Very disappointing. Entrees overdone, dry. Poor service. I asked them if they are short staffed, and our waitperson said that it's been terrible - they can't find people to hire, he said. We've been to WH quite a few times but won't be back anytime soon. Solstice and Port Bistro in Kingston and The Tasty in Plymouth are far superior. Sorry!
There were several things that made the experience NOT enjoyable. The hostess took a while to seat us outside. We had to wonder if she was coming to get us to do so.
We had to wait 50 minutes to get our ordered appetizers and food. The wait staff was young and inexperienced. We also had to ask for bread. The food was pedestrian and portions were small. The waitress asked if we needed anything and we were enjoying the meal after we finished the meal.
Needless to say we won't be back.
Very enjoyable! We had a burger & fries (terrific!) and sauteed codfish (also terrific!). Our server was very attentive, and the room (as well as the outdoor terrace) were quite lovely. We will definitely return to the Winsor House in Duxbury.
The restaurant is a very pretty place with a long history and excellent atmosphere inside. Our waiter was very attentive and the food was very good, but the portions are very small as are the drinks. I would have liked to pay $5.00 more a plate and had more food. My striped bass was 2 by 3 inches in size. In 3 bites it was gone. There were potatoes and little neck clams surrounding the bass with a tomato sauce which was very good, but the fish could have been bigger for $27. Same with the swordfish the others had for $32.
We had such a great time dining alfresco! All the things the restaurant couldn't control (weather, friends, etc) were perfect, but all the things they could control (food, service, atmosphere) were perfect, too! Our server was Eliza, and she was absolutely delightful! There's a reason why The Windsor House is one of our favorite restaurants. Can't wait to go back again!
Not my kind of place. Bar /tavern side had shrieking, raucous customers on a day when no one around. Really a tasting menu, teeny plates, teeny portions, poor value. Waitress told me that the green peppers in my mussel soup were mild- they were not and had to spit out with my mouth on fire. Truly embarassing when I was being treated. They did give me asparagus instead. Their only vegetable. They did not notice that my water glass was empty and I had to request it. Backless benches to sit on in the tavern/ bar area but you can request an uncomfortable chair. Not a place if you eat high healthy protein and veggies like I do. I do not like to leave a restaurant feeling bloated with too much food but neither do I want to leave hungry. Their coffee was good after the meal.
Shared 4 plates. Scallops perfectly cooked, sauce not very flavorful, chased the small amount of peas around the plate. Beet plate was good. Tuna Poke had strings of supposedly seaweed salad, chips were sparse and weren't wasabi powdered. When requested more chips, answer was "not sure, but will check." Returned with 4 chips. Seemed pretty peculiar that the smoked bluefish and avocado toast was served with bluefish on one toast and avocado on the other.
Flavor of food was between ok and good, nothing special. I had higher expectations after seeing reviews. I ordered a pasta dish with sausage. I appreciate the pasta, sauce and sausage all being homemade, but I was disappointed when the dish arrived with 3 small bites of sausage. I ordered a cocktail that arrived weak and mostly ice in the equivalent of a juice glass. When the waitress observed I drank it in a few sips, I asked for another, but without ice. What I got was an 8oz glass of milk with a shot of Kahlua in it. Not a way to impress. I just wanted a good drink.
On Mother's Day the menu was ridiculously limited with very small portioned and expensive choices. The chicken dish, 2 of the people in our party ordered,was not enough to feed a child!!
The facility is great-servcie good,but they need to get their choices expanded, even on a non-holiday it is limited.
Went there for Mother's Day. The hostess sat a family of 5 in the bar at a table suited for 3. I politely requested another table and was told none were available. This was at 5:15 and the restaurant was empty. The hostess was rude and not what I expected from an establishment that prices their meals at $25 per. The portions were small and a joke for the cost. The only bright note here was our waiter who was excellent. He saw our frustration and added another table.
Don't waste your time or money. This restaurant does not value its clients! I have eaten here many times over the past 2 years and it has gone down hill with every visit. My advice: go hire a GM who knows how to run a restaurant and not a few kids at the front desk.
$200 down the drain.
The Winsor House is our local pub and restaurant - our favorite spot for a burgher or fish and chips with a pint, or for a gourmet meal. Wednesday night was definitely in the latter category! We enjoyed a wine dinner (Caymus Vineyards) and a feast prepared by the restaurant's new chef and his great team. Five outstanding courses - and just the right sized servings to end the evening sated and content! Also, five beautifully paired delightful wines. The dinner included an Island Creek oyster in the amuse bouche; a quinoa course with morels, wild ramps and a nori tapenade that was totally different from anything I'd ever tasted and my favorite course; and roast duck breast with foie gras and a rhubarb sauce that had everyone raving. We love the wait staff also! It was a truly special evening.
