Restaurant Review

The Perryville Inn is located in an historic circa 1813 Federal-style building with three dining rooms and four working fireplaces that create a warming glow with one of the smaller dining rooms being an original rustic room dating from 1813 with a huge stone fireplace. The largest or main dining room is a modern space with two walls of windows that face out on the Inn's manicured grounds.

There is also an upstairs cigar-friendly lounge with buttery leather furniture.

During the warmer months there is dining outside on the Inn's brick patio. The patio's ambiance is attractive with flowers and a gazebo. Most of the patio tables have umbrellas and the large chairs have thin cotton seat cushions.

The Inn is popular with the 40+ aged diners and as a romantic dining destination.

The romantic dining experience can be cozy and intimate experience with a cocktail by the fire in the lounge-bar area and dinner seating in one of the smaller dining rooms next to the fireplace. Diners interested in an intimate dining experience are cautioned to avoid seating in the “cavernous” main dining room.

The Perryville Inn was acquired in 1998 by Paul Ingenito and his wife Lorraine and they quickly transformed the inn into a fine dining destination with some remodeling and an infusion of excellent quality food and service improvements.

With executive chef Paul working the kitchen and Lorraine at the front of the house, they have teamed up to provide an enjoyable dining experience

The menu changes seasonally and features many well prepared items with fresh ingredients.

Thanksgiving and the winter holiday season are especially good times to dine at the Perryville Inn with all of its charming holiday decorations.
