Travelled in September 2020, for a birthday trip. We had met Greg on the grounds of the estate and he mentioned how great the restaurant was. We enjoyed lunch so very much We were seated quickly and served timely and the food was just right.

We had a group of 21. With covid we knew we would be split up, however we had booked a special tour at the house that was to take place in an hour and twenty minutes. They were busy and yet the hostess helped us...coordinate and had us seated very quickly. She let the staff know we had a tour so they were on top of getting us our checks right away. That alone is enough to give a good review, but let me tell you the food was OUTSTANDING. With 21 people that included Gluten Free, Vegetarians, Meat Lovers, Picky Teenagers and those who are never sure what they want it is no small feat to have outstanding meals for this group! Again, thank you for your kindness and wonderful Inn!More

We wanted a snack after the tour and the Mt Vernon Inn has a small bar, The young lady bartender was friendly and attentive. The hummus appetizer was plentiful and very tasty! The beer selection was acceptable.

The broiled salmon was very good. Most of he drinks were good and priced about the same as other area restaurants.

We shared the crab cake appetizer, a hoe cake, and cups of the squash soup and the peanut and chestnut soup. It was the perfect amount for a light lunch and tasted wonderful.

We ate dinner here on a cold, windy Saturday evening. The restaurant was not overly crowded, and the atmosphere was nice. Actually felt a bit "colonial". The food was good, if somewhat pricey. By the time you add in a salad, drink, etc. expect at least $30 each. Service was OK, but slow. This is a nice restaurant that completes a good day visiting Mount Vernon. I would not go out of my way to eat here if I did not plan to spend a day touring Washington's estate.More

Given this is the only restaurant around, I was concerned the food would be overpriced and sub-par. Pleasantly surprised. Lovely server who shared stories and recipes with us. Tried the peanut soup and the fried brie and then split a burger. Nice atmosphere and would...return for a proper meal if we visit again.More

Nice calm and picturesque restaurant and bar with good food. Service ok and a nice traditional look. Had a steak salad and apple pie; steak salad had a lot of dressing but steak delicious. Apple pie base was not cooked and could not eat it....Watch out for this!More
