The Inn at Newtown is kind of fancy but fun. Kids will like it. I even met a couple of really cool kids who were having dinner with their parents Cort, the General Manager, is a really nice guy. He was a little shy about talking on camera but I helped him get through it.
Our server, Ashley, was awesome and took really good care of us. I give really high marks to the service at the Inn at Newtown.
My review got started with some Inn at Newtown favorite appetizers.
First Ashley brought out a seasonal dish, Butternut Squash Soup.
Next came the Lobster Corn Chowder with lobster, sweet corn and BACON. I love bacon. I was glad that there was bacon in this dish because lobster isn’t my favorite thing. Take a look at my reaction to THIS lobster dish.
The final appetizer was something I was more used to, Honey Smoked Barbecue Wings.
Between courses, Cort took us on a tour. The Inn at Newtown has a really nice private room that’s nice and big and a great place for private parties, wedding receptions and other events. During warm weather you can also have dinner outside on the deck. There is a Tavern downstairs but I’m only seven so I stayed upstairs. My Dad says it’s really nice though.
After the tour it was time to get back to work. The first entree to arrive was another fall dish. The Fall Chicken Stew, a classic pot-pie with mashed potatoes and a house-made biscuit.
Entree number two was a Grilled Ribeye with asparagus and potatoes. The steak was big, juicy and…well, watch the video.
The last entree I tried was something that I’d never tried before. Grilled Swordfish. with lemon-parsley, Orzo, roasted fennel & tomato lemon caper butter sauce.
I’ll admit it. I was really afraid that I would hate the swordfish. Was I right? Take a look.
Now for the REALLY kid friendly part of the review. Dessert!
First I tasted an Inn at Newtown original, their Homemade Apple Crisp with house-made cinnamon ice cream.
Next up was another of the Inn’s signature desserts, the Ice Cream Sandwich with house-made vanilla ice cream, house-made chocolate cake, rolled in toffee and drizzled with chocolate syrup and topped with a cherry.
Last up was a classic dessert that a lot of people try to make and many don’t get quite right. I’m talking about the one and only, Molten Chocolate Lava Cake. I know exactly how this dessert is supposed to be done because I’ve watched Chef Gordon Ramsay judge plenty of lava cakes, so that is the standard I use. did the Inn at Newtown measure up? Take a look.
The Inn at Newtown is fancy enough for a special occasion but friendly enough for the whole family. I really loved my visit and I really think that you will love it too.
