The reputation of the restaurants at the Stage Neck Inn is exceptional so our disappointment was unanticipated. The hostess and bartender were professional and what one would expect at a fancier restaurant. The waitress, well let’s just say we got in the way of whatever else she was doing that night. She was inattentive and disinterested in serving us. The food was good but unimpressive and took a long time to get to the table. The waitress apologized and asked if we wanted anything while we waited and, as I didn’t memorize the menu, I had no idea what to ask for. I would have expected her to make a recommendation but she was turning to leave as quickly as came. The wine list had a nice selection of whites but uninspired and pedestrian reds. We left unhappy. With 20 or more restaurants of equal reputation and water views within 10 miles of The Stage Neck Inn, it is easier to find quality food and service than to return to this disappointing establishment.
We like to stay in the fall and in the spring. This time we got the Romance Package, once again.... they went above and beyond. Excellent food, staff and location. Within 10 minutes to the outlets, right on the ocean!
