I have eaten dinner in this dining room on three or four occasions. I had halibut on March 3, 2016 and it was excellent. I recommend it highly and plan to go back soon.

We had a great meal in a beautiful dining room. wood paneled room with a very nice fireplace. The only downside was the flower looked to be struggling a bit but may have been due to the water which appeared to have not been changed in over a week by the amount of green. Although it looked like all the... More

Entertained guests from Texas over the holidays. Wanted to take them somewhere that would give these born and bred Texans an historic experience along with a five star meal. The interior was impressive with a nice fire going in the dining room in front of our table. Menu offered varied choices for all tastes. We enjoyed our soups, French onion... More

Thanksgiving dinner at the Inn was enjoyable and unique. The setting is beautiful and the weather cooperated to make for an enjoyable afternoon. The Inn decor is period and the public rooms are comfortable. The meal was excellent, the tastes unique however the service was somewhat slow and the spotty. We had to ask for butter for our rolls and... More

Thanks for joining us on Thanksgiving. It was our busiest Thanksgiving dinner and lodging weekend we have ever had. We thank everyone for coming. Sorry you had to ask for butter and utensils twice. I want to make sure that everyone understands that the "used " utensils you refer to were those used in a previous course of your dinner.... More

My husband & I spent our Anniversary at The Inn and dined in the restaurant. It was quite busy, however we were well taken care of by our waitress and the staff. The food was absolutely wonderful. We can't wait to come back for future Anniversary stays and will definitely be making dinner reservations!! Thank you!!

I took my daughter at Mercersburg Academy out for a special dinner. The dining room was very quiet considering it was alumni weekend. I think the owners have lost support of the academy personnel and needs to do more to attract their business. It was sad to see as I remember 10 years ago, you could not get a reservation... More

I didn't see any review of our restaurant service or food, but I hoped you enjoyed it. It is a little hard for me to recall a dinner visit from October 2014 and reviewed 7 month latter but I will try to explain. 10 years ago, the October Alumni weekend at the Mercersburg Academy was the primary alumni weekend. That... More

We were there last weekend. Jim and Lisa were kind and friendly. The dinner was so good I wish I could have hugged the chef. We had a kind of candied duck which was out of this world, I'll post s picture. Yes it's very expensive, buts it's been a week and I still happily recall our dinner - it's... More
