The one real issue is that despite making a reservation on Open Table several days in advance, the restaurant had no notice of it. They were very accommodating and promised us the next open table, but what happened to the reservation?

We have eaten here before and have been big fans but, our meal this time was not that great. Everyone has an off night and hopefully this was their's. Our meals were just meh. Not horrible but very average and this is after we talked it up to our daughter and made her change her mind about going elsewhere in Mt. Airy. I got the Harvest Pizza with goat cheese and apples but it was a bit undercooked and was very bland. It could have used a balsamic drizzle to liven it up. Supposedly they had some in the kitchen but our waitress completely disappeared after we were served, so no drizzle. The same for the citrus salmon my daughter ordered. The fish was dry and could have used a bit of the citrus marinade drizzled over it. The piece was small and the presentation and flavor was again meh. My husband had the bone in Ribeye steak which was cut very thin and unexpectedly fatty. It didn't seem like a restaurant quality cut. It was the special that night that was anything but special. We left a lot of food on our plates sadly. Like I said, I do like this place and would recommend it and realize that one meh meal does not make or break a place. We have had much better service and meals there in the past. My rating is based on this one meal experience only. Other times would have been much higher. Consistency is a valuable commodity.

I heard mixed reviews about this place do wanted check out for myself. I expected better food. My husband had Inn hamburger and it looked like it was a frozen patty cooked, perfectly round like get in grocery store, it clearly wasn't fresh. He said didnt taste freshly made. I had pretzel and cheese dip. Pretzels which looked exactly like the super pretzel bought in grocery store in frozen section. Also had Cobb salad but they it was ok chicken over cooked. The service was good , was attentive ,until it got busy. We both agree we wouldnt go back and wouldnt recommend.

Thank you for the honest review, Monica. I believe we spoke via Facebook already, but wanted to acknowledge your review here as well. I'm very sorry to hear about the poor quality of your meals; While we don't keep our patties frozen, we are always trying to serve the best, most fresh dishes we can, I apologize that this clearly was not the case this time. I will forward your comments to our kitchen manager. We appreciate feedback like this so our restaurant can keep getting better as a whole.

My favorite place in Mt. Airy. Reasonable prices and the only place our vegetarian (mostly vegan) family can all eat at that isn't in Frederick or Columbia. It's also the only restaurant where I leave feeling full!!

We went on a Wednesday evening to take advantage of their Prime Rib special - a good decision since the meal was excellent - we will go back on a Wendesday evening - and will probably try out other times as well!

We eat here quite frequently , however usually very early for either dinner or breakfast. This is the first time my food was not up to their usually great standards. I the steak was cook perfectly , hot, flavorful. The mash potatoes Luke warm at best, the asparagus was old, the hollandaise sauce was warm but had cold watery crab placed in the middle... hopefully just a fluke, they were very busy...

Made a note on the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday. It would have been nice if the staff acknowledges that.

Food was excellent. Wife and I both had brick-oven pizza. Dessert was good but probably not made on site. I had a flight of 5 different beers, really enjoyed 4 of them. Many of their beers are from local or nearby breweries, which I think is a great thing for restaurants to do. Restaurant was not crowded and had a variety of seating options (booth, table, bar, bar tables, and outdoor seating). Noise level was normal, ambiance was friendly with nice decor and local pictures on the wall. Staff was very friendly. Restaurant is clean, and seems like parts of it have been renovated sometime in last year or two. Overall a good experience and a place my wife and would drive to again in the future.

The Mount Airy Inn is a delightful oasis just off of Route 70.
Finding the front door is a bit tricky but once you so the food was delicious with ample portions and a nice atmosphere. Our waiter, Bo, was a delight!! We will be back!!

We were shown to a table promptly. The drinks were served quickly. While some of our choices were not available, others were, and were enjoyed. The cream of crab soup was excellent. It could have been even better if served with sherry, as is often the case. There were many interesting entrees, but the special was Prime Rib that night, and three of us enjoyed that special, while the fourth chose another favorite. The portions were large and perfectly prepared to our orders. Dessert options all sounded delicious, and we enjoyed the large portions to finish our special meal. Some of us needed boxes to take some home. Our server was attentive, but did not rush us, and we felt his welcome and his interest in having us enjoy our meal.

This was our first time at Mt Airy Inn and the whole group loved it. We were very impressed that our table was ready upon arrival with a glass of water for each of us plus a bowl of cut lemons! The service was outstanding and the food delicious. We appreciated the separate checks. Thanks for a great dining experience.

Great food, great service and they take reservations unlike many other restaurants these days. Our food was on the table in about 20 minutes after ordering and the serving sizes were very generous, even the kids meals. Very diverse beer menu and they also offer 6oz flights so that you can taste test before picking your favorite. We will definitely be adding Mt. Airy Inn to our restaurant rotation.

One of those meals where nothing was bad (though my prime rib was well beyond the medium rare ordered), but there was nothing great about it. We'll go back, but would not go here for a special occasion.
