We've been going here happily for many years. We were there for my son's birthday dinner during winter school break. Weeknight, 6:30pm, place was half empty at least. We were handed menus then totally ignored for over 30 minutes. Not even drinks. It's like our...More

Its risky to do Turkey day dinner at a restaurant. We did it once when my sister was in New York, and this was the second time. It was very good, everything tasted fabulous. The Squash soup though really blew my mind more than anything!

Casual yet elegant at the same time. Super service, casual atmosphere but memorable dishes. Must do if in Wilmington skiing Hermitage (Haystack) or otherwise.

We were in Wilmington for a friend's wedding and attended the rehersal dinner at the Hermitage Inn. The Inn was quaint, beautiful and the food was great. We had a wonderful time.

I've been going to The Hermitage for many years and have always enjoyed the food and friendly service. Recently they changed their menu and my wife and I tried the macaroni and cheese and the flatbread pizza . Both excellent!

I have friends who take me out to dinner when they come up to ski. It is always a week day evening after February vacation so we are about the only people in the dining room. For the last 3 years they have given our...More

New chef, new, inexperienced staff, new and limited menu combine to make a very unenjoyable evening. Raw burger, swampy salad, grizzly, inedible steak. Slow and rude severs. When asked about the greens swimming in dressing, the server said "it is what it is." Will not...More
