A handy little neighborhood place with a fun tiki bar in the back. The waitress was nice but clueless about the beers, and the food was just ok but appropriately priced. The handiness and the neighborhood feel can't be surpassed. I'll certainly be back, especially after my hikes on the Stairway to Heaven, which is right down the road.

Great outdoor party deck. Live music, tiki bar and a great wait staff make this a must do place. The food is good and reasonably priced.

Took my family on a Friday night for dinner under stars, live music, and good food, got 2 out of 3. Dug the tunes, place was a little divey- but OK. Staff hustled, crowd was mellow, but the food just didn't WOW! Not even the specials were special. I would reduce the number of choices and improve what was left.

I have been there a number of times. During summer they have a tiki bar set up outside in the back of the building. It's nice and a good place to have drinks and appetizers. Today I went to the bar after a round of golf at Great Gorge. They usually have really good hamburgers but today I figured I... More

I've been to the Vernon Inn a number of times for a late evening meal. The bar area inside is nice and the music playing in the background is not too loud so you can still have conversations with the people sitting near you. They have several TVs which are set up to watch whatever sporting events are going on... More
