Such a charming location! The food was delicious and the service was attentive. Not to mention their Bloody Mary bar had all of my favorite additions. Will definitely be going back for breakfast more often!

Worthington Inn is always a good night. The food is inventive and interesting and we always enjoy. They have a great wine selection as well. We sit at the bar quite often after dinner and that's engaging as well.

The history drips off the furnishings, bar and building. I'm always greeted warmly. The bar is comfy, and the cocktails expertly prepared with a decent variety of spirits. The food is tasty, fresh made and especially a great bargain during HAPPY HOUR (M-F 3-6p). This is a great place to grab a afternoon cocktail, lunch or a nice romantic dinner.... More

The Worthington Inn has a lovely historic decor and a pleasant quiet atmosphere, however, the fare is poor. I had the Smoked Salmon Eggs Benedict and received a salmon component that was canned, flaked salmon made into cakes. Certainly not the smoked salmon we think of. The eggs were underdone with lots of clear albumin still present. Secondly, the Bulleit... More

It's difficult these days to go to a reasonably quiet restaurant. Worthington Inn is sectioned off into different Victorian styled rooms making it quieter and lovely, more like an inn of the old days, which it is. The waiter was attentive and the food,for the most part, was delicious. My friend said her pork chop was tough and didn't finish... More

The food is impeccably prepared - flavors, temperature, presentation. I don't know when we have had such a dining delight. The staff are so friendly and attentive. It's like they are really glad you are dining there. No complaints whatsoever.

Stopped in after dinner elsewhere for dessert. Promptly seated and our server was there quickly. Dessert menu that evening was limited. I tried a seasonal cake with chestnuts, it was ok. My Irish Coffee was excellent. Usually there is an excellent dessert menu.

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. The building is from 1831 with a Victorian-style decor. The history of this place is very interesting and the decor is really nice for a date or special occasion. It's formal, but with warm, cozy feel. We were there for dinner and can't say enough good things about the food. You... More

First, let me give credit where due, the food was fantastic. We had one of the chicken dishes, and the beef worthington dish, along with a couple of appetizers and salad and it was seriously excellent. But for the service, we were seated in a back corner area and our waitress (forget name - reddish hair) was terrible. Just to... More

had an excellent lunch with a friend. Service was excellent, food was good but restroom facilities were challenging for an older person or one who is handicapped. Sandwich prices were $15 & up.
