Great location right on the Indian River with dockage available. We stopped in for dinner. The food was good and the view of the river from the patio is good. The service was slow, but this is up north. Pricing seemed in line with other waterfront restaurants.

Went there for dinner and my overall experience was horrible! Only 3 tables with people, so it wasn't busy. The waitress was rude and smelled of alcohol. When we finally got our food 50 minutes later it was cold and greasy. Half our order was wrong and when we tried to send it back the waitress informed us they were...

Went here this morning to have breakfast...took forever for the waitress to come to take our order...one person in our party wanted his food cooked a certain way and the waitress informed him that "if she remembered she would tell the cook, but she could not guarantee it" She was extremely rude and just sat all of our drinks at...

I have been to "The Inn Between" several times. Each time I experienced, rude wait staff, and a owner who is obnoxiously drunk. I have eaten there three times now, simply because I tried to give this place a chance. The food is either overly cooked, way too greasy, or cold by time it get's to you. For the amount...

We have had a cottage in Indian River for 20 years and go there very often. The Inn Between is one of only 2 places you would want to go for dinner and drinks, in Indian River. Although the service can be slow, the food is typically very good. The view of the river is great and very entertaining on...

We visited this establishment on the 5th of July 2012 with a party of 6 in total. We arrived and decided to sit at a table on the waterfront but after 15 mins of being ignored by the waiting staff we made the big mistake of relocating to the main bar area. Here we were ignored by the waiting staff...

I can't comment on the food because after waiting more than 1.5 hours, we still didn't have our food. I understand this is a busy time of year, but the owner should staff better. We were completely ignored from the time we sat down until I asked for our drink bill and left. At this time the server decided to...

924 I have to agree with you. The only reason the doors are still open is the access to water and view of the river/boats. The service with an attitude ( including ownership) and marginal food has drove many to other locations within walking distance. this place In need of a complete overhaul ( start with attitude )
