We enjoyed the Christmas Eve Dinner Buffet & Christmas morning breakfast. The cost for the buffet was not bad...$33 per person. It was really just average. But the atmosphere was fantastic! Loved the historic inn.

We were staying in the hotel for our son's wedding, with family and friends. Cound't believe we could get such an excellent meal AND a bottle of wine for a price well below what we would have paid elsewhere. Service was outstanding.

The meal was served heaped on the plate in layers including turkey, ham, mashed potatoes, stuffing, gravy and green beans. A buffet would have been much better and much more appealing. The sweet potato apple bisque was a good starter, and the food was tasty even though it was piled high. The dessert was another story. The piece of pumpkin... More

My husband and I visited the Speakeasy Bar and Grill and our waitress told us about date night on Friday at Circa 31.

We visited Circa 31 for a lunch buffet and were pleased with the menu selections and tastiness of the food. Buffet meats could have been kept a bit warmer though. Dessert selections were delicious, and servers were pleasant and attentive.

I'm a very casual sort of guy. I don't wear suits, hate ties, and am more comfortable in Jeans and t-shirts or sweatshirts. This is a formal place at dinnertime, but they allow folks like me to slide in at lunchtime. My wife wanted to go, so we gave it a shot. Nobody made me feel out of place for... More

Date night is a terrific value at $35. Per couple and includes a bottle of wine. The braised beef was fork tender and the key lime pie was outstanding.

We stayed in that hotel on Sunday night and had to go to the restaurant because everything else was closed. However we really enjoyed it with nice live music and warm atmosphere. Food was good as well
