The Poplar Inn is a favorite of my wife and me. The food never disappoints - I'm especially a fan of their steaks - always done to perfection. And...their tiramisu is to die for. If I have room for dessert, this is always my selection.

The food and atmosphere is hands down the best here. Such a quaint place. Every time I've dined here, I've never been disappointed.

I dined here for business a few weeks ago. The building is charming and was built back in the 1800's. Our dinner and service were excellent... their appetizers were delicious!

Sophisticated but unpretentious - food is well prepared and attractively presented. Options for a range of appetites and budgets. We'll be back!

My husband and I fell in love with the Poplar a few years back and they never cease to delight us. The food is always amazing, we routinely have long romantic dinners there and the staff is marvelous! Worth every penny and any drive necessary!

Good food, good atmosphere and good drinks. Wait staff was attentive and good with suggestions. Fresh fish and steaks with good size proportions. The only bad thing was the size of the table upstairs for 4 people. 4 Meals, bread, drinks and any extras made...More
