We had been there many years ago for a very special occasion so the place has a special place in our hearts. We have gone back a few times over the years and have watched it go downhill. Used to be known for the potato leek soup. We had it this time and swear there were no leeks in it... More

I stayed at Rider's Inn on 10/21/2016 (last week) after flying in from London for the funeral of one of the most important people in my life. I was booked in for four nights and had asked for the quietest and nicest room available. As you'd expect, it was also the most expensive. The first night was quiet and comfortable... More

Over the years my family, friends and relatives, as well as co workers, have gathered at Rider's Inn for many different reasons....dinner, holidays, celebrations, grab a drink, sit outside and enjoy the weather and the ambiance of the stoic building. I would highly recommend this venue to all as the food is above average and the ambiance is relaxing.

We are unable at this time to know what it will cost but it will be fabulous and a good bargain. Thank you again and we hope to see you over the Christmas holidays. Remember we have the... More

My friend and I went here for the Sunday brunch. It was a complete buffet that included breakfast and lunch items. Everything was tasty and presented well. Our waiter Nick was on top of things. It is a bit pricey but worth it if you are hungry. Make sure to try their desserts.

Great food!!! The Salmon and banana foster was the best. Services was excellent. They took care of us and even got to tour some of the rooms. Plan to stay over for a night. Would recommend this restaurant to everyone.

My family and I decided to spend Thanksgiving dinner at this restaurant. After waiting 1.5 hours our food was finally served to us...it was cold and the poor treatment from employees [and management] made us lose our appetites.

I booked this hotel for our irst anniversary weekend- the theme for this year was to be 'haunted'. Rider's Inn was an excellent decision for this pick. I chose the location because of online reviews, modest pricing, and also there was a 'Taleful' dinner offered where the owner, Elaine, gave some interesting stories of happenings that can ONLY be associated...

Elaine and her staff are amazing! The Inn is beautiful, clean rooms, and available at a terrific price. The food and drinks were outstanding. Elaine and her staff made us feel welcomed and she is knowledgeable in so many areas. I will stay there again.

“Ask for a room away from the bar for a more peaceful night of rest.”

“*TIP* If you are a sensitive sleeper, request a room away from the bar side. There is live music often played in the bar, which can get a little loud. If you are easily bothered by sound, don't sleep above the bar.”
