    Disappointing Mother’s Day experience. We were seated on-time, then ignored for the ensuing 20mins. After speaking with the Manager, we left.

    Pros: fantastic food, large portions, friendly and attentive service, beautiful view, local beer selection, price point. Cons: noisy (half full at 6:30pm Saturday and I had trouble hearing my husband seated across from me), no local wines on the menu. Pros outweighed cons and we will dine here again, but at an earlier time so that it is not as noisy.

    Our group thoroughly enjoyed the Sunday Supper menu. The first two courses were so delicious- the cheesy pizza crusts with marinara and the Garlic-infused shrimp bruschetta was absolutely one of the most fully satisfying dishes I’ve had in years. The only negative was consistent pounding coming from the staircase the led from the main level down to the lower level. Our table was about twenty feet away. They really need to add something to the treads to soften the noise.

    The beer garden outside looked like fun, but we were there to have a nice brunch on Saturday at noon in the Inn's dining room. The Inn has been beautifully renovated, including the grounds. It's a lovely setting. The food was excellent, when it showed up. It took nearly 1/2 hour to get a cup of coffee, then they served my husband his meal 15 minutes before mine, and only after I alerted the server. The kitchen is turning out lovely food, but there is no support on the floor. I had very fond memories of Comus from my 30s, but yesterday, at least, it was very noisy (shouting level in the dining room) and unorganized and definitely not fun.

    Great fun starting out the afternoon in the beer garden with excellent live music. Did not drink the beer but others liked it. My margarita just ok. Had reservations inside the dining room. Hostess and servers all fantastic. Had a table over looking the beer garden and the lovely view of mountain in the distance. Loved that the noise level was low and perfect for table conversation. The menu we had was a preset menu for that day, which had large portions and overall a good value. My only request would be to offer healthier options even if they were smaller in size. But overall, was a great experience that I would go back to!

    Charming location and good food with generous portions but the menu feels pretty limited with few lighter meal offerings. A selection of entree salads would be welcome. Vegetarian offerings have always been impossible meat based rather than vegetable forward such as impossible meat bolognese. We have been twice in the last month and there was live music both times which can make it pretty loud. Overall a nice place with a great ascetic that could be outstanding with a few tweaks. Worth a visit even if a bit out of your way.

    We went for Easter brunch. We were skeptical of the prix fixe menu, but ended up absolutely loving the entire experience! The ambiance of the new decor was pleasing, and the food turned out to be excellent in taste and appearance. It has been a few years since I had been there, but the food never disappoints. I recommend it highly!

    We were disappointed. We ate in the dining room on the Saturday before Easter. The food was good, not great. At least the food that they had available was good. There are 8 entrees on the menu and 4 of them were 86'd. They offer 2 supplemental side dishes and 1 of them was unavailable. 3 desserts were unavailable. The apps (beef carpaccio and bruchetta) were the best. Entrees were poorly managed. We were a party of 6 and only 4 entrees came out together. The 5th arrived 5 minutes later and the 6th was 10+ minutes after that! The 6th meal was just a spinach salad and some gnocchi. C'mon, how long does it take to make a spinach salad??? My steak was ordered medium and served well done. 2 of us asked for ketchup with our fries, but it never arrived. It was a beautiful spring day and the beer garden was very full. The dining room had empty tables. I suspect they ran out of food in the dining room because demand from the beer garden was overwhelming. Poor planning. We won't be back.

    Limited menu, but food was great. Got the lamb lasagna and the shrimp bruschetta and the crème brûlée. Shrimp and lamb were great! Serving size was big! Crème brûlée was average. The margarita was excellent.

    We enjoyed the coffee, avocado toast, blueberry pancakes, chicken and waffles, shrimp tacos and the salmon brunch. All the food was amazing. I do wish for the pricing that the coffee would have been a bit larger but it was tasty and they had non dairy milk options. Their menu is lovely, the outdoors had a bank playing in the biergarten and plenty of tacos and snacks being served outside. The games for the kids and the fish pond is a plus. Lots of picnic type seating on the grass and walls if necessary. Highly recommended.

    We went for the Italian Sunday Supper, which is a pre fixe menu, with selections within multiple courses. It was fantastic! Food was really authentic Italian and I'm picky since I am Italian on both sides! Delicious and ample portions. A really awesome idea for a Sunday date night. Husband and I were extremely satisfied with the food and service and the VIEW from the restaurant is spectacular!

    We’ve been a fan of the Comus Inn and are thrilled to see them back and better than ever. Wonderfully redesigned dining room and facilities are still charming and celebrate the outstanding view. Can’t wait to return to enjoy the outdoor patio, fire pits, and games! We were stuffed silly from the Sunday pre-fix Italian dinner which boasts generous portions and delicious options.

    We really loved their brunch. The food we ordered was excellent, the only reason I didn't give 5 stars was because I wish they would have an omelette or pancakes on the menu. My teens loved the chicken & waffles.
