Gratis, except for sides. The Belgian waffle a mouthful of heaven on earth, with or without the hot maple syrup. The biscuits better after removing the onion sauce and finally a CHEF that knows how to baste eggs. The cheesy grits, not that cheesy. A quaint quiet morning place. Matthew was excellent in attending to the table, well worth the... More

My husband and I have had a wonderful experience at the Chestnut Grill at the Green Park Inn! This morning, we had a wonderful waiter, Matt who not only served us a delicious complementary breakfast, but helped us find a place to hike. This evening we celebrated 40 year being married with a wonderful Valentines' Day surf and turf dinner.... More

This restaurant is in the Green Park Inn. The menu is eclectic and interesting. All four of us were pleased with our choices, the food preparation and portion sizes. I will say that my calamari was slightly overcooked but when isn't it. Wait staff was attentive but not clingy. Had read some recent bad reviews, but in my opinion, they... More

The service was poor, the food was average, the restaurant ambiance was absent, prices were reasonable; parties of 8 or more get 20% gratuity added to the bill. Located in the Green Inn Hotel. Not recommended.

Have stayed at the Grren Park before but not when the Chestnut Grille was open. Lucky for me not only were they open but there was live music. The food was great and the experience memorable.

We had a large group dinner here and the staff handled everything with ease. Our servers, Regina and Jake, were excellent. Also the chef did a great job with our meals. Thank you Jill for setting us up!

Had breakfast. Service was pretty good and the food was very good, however when asked where the men's room was, the hostess did not know. I would go there again.

My son, who never finishes a meal, ate his entire teriyaki salmon and asparagus entree. Impressive! The local trout with crab entree was also really good! Service was awesome! We will be back next time we are here!

Located in the historic Green Park Inn, the dining at the Chestnut Grille is sophisticated as well as celebratory of local cuisine. Their vegetables are grown on site, the presentation is lovely and the prices reasonable. We had citrus shrimp and white grits for example. I had a small serving of crispy pork (shoulder) with carmelized onion and carrots. I... More
