Props to the chef, he knew exactly how to please the palette! - Desarie G in April 2019
Charged with choosing a luncheon spot to appeal to a variety of tastes and food choices of two dozen people, I also had to make certain it met a certain standard as many of those attending are in the tea/food business. Byron's Dining Room at the Mercersburg Inn proved to be the perfect choice. Working for several weeks with new owner Tomi Fujita and long-time Inn employee, Darla, I was confident that the event would be a success and I was absolutely delighted with the outcome. We chose the sunporch and the "tea service" level of formality. It was beautiful. Our three-course menu of Frisee salad, entree of Chilean sea bass or coq au vin and caramel pear tatin dessert along with vegetarian and vegan options suited all taste buds, and Tomi and Darla prepared our tea carefully to go with our meal. Every morsel prepared by Chef Nowalk was delicious. This is my favorite kind of dining: beautiful, formal but NOT stuffy setting where one is served expertly-prepared delicious food. Afterwards Darla led a tour of this venerable inn and everyone left with happy memories of their visit. I can't wait to return for my birthday. - Lin H, in October 2018
Delicious, lovely service! We have lived in Mercersburg for six years and never tried the Inn until just now. I wish we hadn't waited so long! The food was top-notch. I had their scallops. They were perfectly cooked and the bacon sauce enhanced the flavor. My husband had a steak and it was tender and nicely cooked. But the real star of the meal was dessert. We had the house-made chocolate ice cream. Scrumptious! No way we're waiting another six years between visits! - Linda T in September 2018
Very fine dining in heavenly setting. - Mark L in August 2018
