The food was well prepared and very good. Portions were generous, and the service was excellent. The restaurant was quaint and nicely decorated, and very clean. A great way to start a day of exploring the North Shore.

The Raspberry Rhubarb Pie was EXCELLENT! I had two big problems while I was here! 1. There was no way I could try every Pie available here! My stomach is not that big! 2. Lack of time! I wish I had more time to try...More

This place is a local favorite. It's been here forever. If you're passing by you should try it! Try the North Shore Crumble.

We stopped here because my adult son requested I bring a pecan pie home for him. He does not like pie but LOVES the Rustic Inn's pecan pie. My husband and I, along with our three grandchildren, decided to eat our evening meal. He and...More

The group would easily fit in the restaurant but it would probably be helpful to make sure the restaurant knows you are coming in advance and it probably would be great if you didn't pick a peak time of day.
