I actually posted this on the hotel page which was the wrong place. We went to dinner for my wife's birthday, there were 4 of us. When we were seated, we were the only ones in the dining room but then again it was 6:30 so a little early. We were a little concerned since there were no clientele in... More

We stopped here as we were driving home from southern Ohio. It had been on the itinerary of a past trip (about 20 years earlier) by our local historic society. We thought we'd give it a try. The dining room was pretty empty as we were a bit late from lunch. We were seated in front of an antique floor... More

Did something new and went to Sunday brunch. Lived most of my life in this city and have only been to Rider's Inn once for a party. That is about to change. Sunday brunch was great! Nice selection of different foods - breakfast to dinner! Eggs, meats, potatoes a couple ways, fried chicken (great), lasagna, cabbage rolls, stuffed sole and... More

Excellent food, service and hospitality. Went there for Valentine's Day and had the best food. The bourbon cherry glazed salmon and banana fosters is to die for. Highly recommend the salmon for dinner and the banana foster for dessert. You will not be disappointed. Will be going back there again really soon.

Hadn't eaten here in years and decided to try it for dinner on a weeknight. The menu is very interesting and it took a long time to make a decision on food. Rather than just having the usual steaks, chicken, fish--the foods are offered with interesting sauces. I had chicken with a Dijon mustard cream sauce which was excellent. There... More

Trip A. I had the same experience with my family and the owner disrespecting her employees and making fun of Martin, our server, for being Gay. We reserved months in advance. When we arrived our table was not ready and the manager said, we had to wait, because there were squatters at our table (referring to the costumers waiting to... More

Went there again recently after about 40 years(when we had our rehearsal dinner). Very good. Great potato leek soup. Nice staff. Supposed to be haunted but we did not see any ghosts during our meal. HA!

We had an extremely disappointing dining experience today. Last year I won 2 gift certificates from a fundraiser. Each was good for $12 off the Sunday brunch for two at Rider's Inn in Painesville. It's a very old, historical Inn. Been around for a long time. The place was very antiquey and had some charm. We were given a table... More

We came with another couple for dinner on a Sunday evening; it was not crowded. Our waiter was friendly but we had to ask for wine list twice and he was not sure about some of the questions we asked - Again, though he was friendly and pleasant all evening.
