Have been there for Christmas partys and to just dine. Food has always been very good. Salad bar is well stocked with good selections.

They have really great prime rib. There are specials every night. There is an excellent stocked salad bar with most meals. The place is quite large and the dining room is located a good ways away from the bar, so it is peaceful dining.

People working at the bar are not friendly. Act like it is a chore to wait on you. No smiles or thank you and taking away glasses and napkins before finished. Also some of dinnerware was dirty at dinner.

It is kind of a dated-looking place. The food is reasonably priced, but very average in taste. I was NOT impressed by the Friday Fish Fry. A place that has been around this long should knock it out of the park. By no means is this a bad place, though.

We go to Rex's about twice per year, simply to see a band or enjoy a drink. The food we had at Rex's previously was bland. This is a nice supper club, however, the menu options and taste offerings need to be improved.

Rex's Innkeeper has a wonderful salad bar and soup, excellent steaks and specials, friendly staff and a comfortable atmosphere. In summer the flowers and gazebo are lovely.

The prime rib at Rex's Innkeeper is always the best. They also have an amazing soup and salad bar. After dinner I would always recommend either a Pink Squirrel or Grasshopper ice cream drink.

I was happily surprised to see broiled scallops on the menu and they were delicious. My husband had the Prime Rib which he enjoyed also.
