Let yourself be transported back in time. Don't expect modern, franchise food or ambiance. Enjoy the relaxed, family style setting. Our group had trout, ham and roast beef. All of the courses were very good. The BLT soup was quite unique....not sure how I feel...More

What a beautiful and interesting Inn. We just went for drinks at the bar, but ended up staying for dinner. Sarge, the bar tender was a hoot! So interesting to talk to and very kind! He suggested the rainbow trout and boy was he right!...More

We regret our dinner at the Fryemont— The entrees were average, the side dishes were bland, and the service was poor. Our server was quite unhappy when she made an error with one of our desserts and had to bring us the one we ordered—Bryson...More
