Great friendly and relaxed atmosphere. The food was excellent as was the service. We ate in the dining room that looked out to the yard of the inn where you could dine outside under charming lights. Will definitely go back every time we’re here!

Beautiful, spare, minimalist and welcoming aesthetic. Very appealing. Great service. Delicious food, though the mussels were tiny! And it was difficult to have an easy conversation at certain moments because of the noise level in the room. I will definitely return as I really liked the vibe and the excellent food and service.

We had our meal at The Brooklin Inn on a hot Tuesday. We sat outside at the picnic table and enjoyed our delicious burgers and fries and drinks. Had we arrived earlier we would have visited the awesome pub in the basement. Waitstaff was delightful and swift. The food was delicious (I regret not ordering all three dessert options!). I look forward to returning soon!

We loved the Brooklin Inn so much that, after we checked out and traveled 45 minutes north to a different location, we made the drive back down for dinner one night. It’s atmosphere is cool meets hometown meets summer outside and the food was phenomenal, locally sourced, hyper fresh, and a fantastic value to top it off. We I’ll not only be eating here on our next trip to the peninsula but will be staying at the Inn again too!

You couldn’t improve on this experience! Every single thing was terrific. The food was all wonderful. I think we ordered everything. That garden salad was so delish we saved some and had it with fried eggs on our boat in the morning as well as some of the olive tapenade and a piece of fried eggplant. Great bar and wait staff. And, it was fun seeing kids out with their parents in the “wide open”; reminded us of normalcy. Thanks.

It was their first night open after a long, silent winter. They were well prepared and right on it. It was a friendly and fun atmosphere. Looking forward to the nest time.Our pork loaf sandwich on homemade focaccia was delicious. The local salad greens were the best. Bravo!
