We stopped by without a reservation about 2 pm and there were lots of empty tables despite the grounds still being quite crowded. It was a calm stop after the heat of standing in lines and touring the mansion and grounds. The service was slow...More

Got to tour on a business trip and ended up dining at the Mount Vernon Inn when we finished. They were all set up and ready for us, immediately serving drinks. They were quick to bring bread and take orders and kept everything filled. Servers...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
The site shows that there are reservations available but none for the day I will be there. I have a large party (7) and don't want to wait for 45-60 minutes. From the reviews it looks like you don't have to have a reservation. Can I wait for a table since I can't get a reservation for my date?

It's best to call - we went just for their Valentine's Day special dinner. It wasn't very intimate, but the food and ambiance was amazing!
