We were visiting friends and dropped in here for dinner on a Saturday night. We were seated right away. The menu was mostly steaks, seafood and Italian, but there was something for everyone. The eggplant parm was superb!

We enjoyed our second dinner in the past 2 months at this wonderful place. Many of us remember the Mandana Inn from years ago; this is NOT the same, so, so much better. Excellent food, lots of choices, great wine and drinks and terrific service. We highly recommend it and encourage everyone to put aside their memories of the past.... More

We had 6 for dinner on a busy Saturday night. The fish was great and the service was attentive. They were busy with a wedding reception which made for a longer evening but it was still excellent

As a second thought we booked last minute reservations on a Saturday night knowing every restaurant in the village would be booked. Pleasant ride to this very well known spot. Not a far ride from the village. Interior of building hasn't changed much over the years but the menu sure did. We opted for pan seared scallops, salmon and crab... More

We had a party of five, ordering four different entrees. None of us were in the least bit dissatisfied. My Delmonico was done exactly as I asked, and was a wonderful cut of meat. Two of our party had the Trout, which they loved. My son had the veal parmigano and couldn't stop raving about it, especially the sauce. Very... More

Stopped by at the new Mandana Inn and the experience was great!! New ownership is right there for customers and expanded menu has delightful choices. Eggplant parm was outstanding. Highly recommend.

Although the room was hot and food was uneven, we'd go back if we were right there and hungry. In the fall, it would be worth a bit of a drive for a really good steak.

My favorite restaurant from forty years back, and still as good as ever, I was pleasantly surprised . The service and food is excellent, however , I've never been able to pass up on the stuffed, baked haddock and grasshopper pie for dessert. The local water has a bad taste, the only downside.

On June 18th, Mandana Inn catered our son's wedding. We are highly satisfied with everything. They were professional, on-time, and the food was delicious. Emily assured us that everything was under control, and it was. They helped make our son and his wife's wedding one of the best weddings we have ever been to (besides ours). We got a lot... More
