I wandered in to thehope and glory inn in hopes of getting a reservation for the same day. The weather has been threatening with hurricane. The owner Peggy was delightful and very accommodating. We were able to obtain a reservation for that evening as people had canceled because of the weather. The meal was outstanding the chef wandered the tables... More

After a 7 hour drive, it was wonderful to relax in the Dining Hall and feel like we were the only couple in the room. Chef Mezeret personally attended to us, explained her menu for the evening, kept our wine glasses full, and graciously served each course of her dinner: wonderful roasted oysters and crab cakes accompanied by perfectly prepared...

Nice outside eating area. We had breakfast inside due to rain shower, but inside is roomy and comfortable.

One of our most memorable meals to date. The chef met us the night before in detention and over a delicious martini she learned our likes and dislikes. She asked us questions; we asked her questions. The love that she puts into her creations was apparent. Chef, we have eaten at many many delightful restaurants. Our dinner was beyond perfection.... More

Great spot for a nice meal in a lovely surrounding. I have to say the service and dishes served are excellent with a choice of a three course meal. This place gets booked up very fast so please make reservations in advance. The host and hostess have taken extra step to make everyone comfortable so that they can enjoy a... More

We tried 3 dining venues in the area during our stay in Irvington. Without doubt or hesitation, the Dining Hall at the Hope & Glory Inn was the best. We were fortunate to be the only guests the night we dined there. Our service was exceptional and the food was outstanding. My wife enjoyed a baked oyster appetizer (no surprise)... More

What can I say about dining at the Hope and Glory Inn? While the Inn is based on the school that used to be located there, the dining room is certainly nothing like any school cafeteria I have ever known!!! Each course is carefully paired with a wonderful wine, and is beautifully presented. And, most importantly, each course is absolutely... More

Food and service was outstanding, waited on attentively but not over attentive. Chef came out to describe the courses, see if we had preferences and later to insure we enjoyed.
