We enjoyed a beautiful meal at the Inn for our Anniversary. We were seated at a corner table with a beautiful view of the lake and the sunset. In nice weather, the huge glass doors open to a stunning patio with seating and firepit. Once seated we were surprised with a glass of champagne by our hostess. Our server was... More

Four of us had a delicious and well-served meal by the fire. We arrived just in time for a nice happy hour. Wine from Chile was great. For appetizers, we ordered a number of sides--all were great, especially the mushrooms. Brussels sprouts were nice but could have been more done. Our entrees included scallops, duck and pot roast. The pot... More

The setting is gorgeous, the furnishing excellent, the service good but cool, the food not so great for the price. The wait staff seems unsure of themselves and the food is not impressive at all. Very sparse and overpriced and frankly it doesn't even make you crave more. The only reason to go is for the setting and elegant surroundings,... More

Ambiance - the best you could ask for...on the lake, beautiful old inn. Service - Very good. Meal - The duck I ordered and my partner's scallops were the best. But the soup and sides left much to be desired. The seafood chowder was lacking flavor. The side dishes that came with our meal were supposed to be roasted. They... More

We were staying across the street at Wallcourt Hall for New Year's Eve, so we wandered over to the main inn for breakfast on New Year's Day. So glad we did! The service was warm and welcoming. The food was terrific as well. We ordered an Aurora sampler breakfast (creamy scrambled eggs, bacon, hash brown casserole, homemade toast and preserves)... More

We had breakfast at the Aurora Inn Dining Room the morning of our stay and had a great experience. Stella, our server was prompt, attentive, and went above and beyond to ensure we had an excellent dining experience. She brought us champagne after finding out the reason for our visit and made our breakfast extra enjoyable! Highly recommend!

This is a well-run dining establishment in a quaint inn. We had breakfast and dinner while staying there. The food is not cheap, but it is very well prepared and the service was impeccable.

We chose The Aurora Inn for a three-day mini-vacation partly for its dining room. We were not disappointed. The off-season menu was a bit limited but offered a good range of signature, classic, and traditional dishes, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. The staff were friendly, prompt, and helpful in making selections appropriate to our tastes and appetites. One evening... More
