Wonderful place for a special event. The Somm was amazing as was the food and ambiance. I didn't realize the menu was prix fixe when I reserved. It was fine. Two options of 3 or 5/6 selections are offered. Stayed overnight and the breakfast was equally nice.

We were warmly welcomed and seated in one of the parlors where we were served cocktails and appetizers while someone played the piano

During dinner our server was very well informed, knew about my husband’s food sensitivities and helped us pair wines with our dishes. We haven’t been her in about 18 years! It won’t take that long for our next visit!!

Apart from one really drunk girl at the next table over who was basically shouting her business and text messages to everyone in the room, it was fantastic! Came there for my 40th birthday and the food was spectacular.

Overall outstanding dining experience from the ambience of the Holiday decorated sitting rooms to the food in the dining room. Our only negative was the lengthy time for our server to bring the check upon conclusion.

Awesome! We went on a Tuesday night, which was excellent, because it was quiet and perfect! I will go again on off nights because it was the best! We've been there before on Fri/Sat nights and felt rushed and overlooked, so I highly recommend the off night.

The staff was all attentive and our waiter (oh, I'm terrible at names, i asked him twice and still don't remember) but he made the BEST Gettin' Figgy with it drinks (and instructed someone else on the last one I had, which was just as awesome!)

My favorite place there every time is the Pickwick Pub. Huge fireplace, soft leather couches and I've never had a bad drink or bad word there! I'd go just to camp out there, but the dinner is bonus!

We had the salmon and filet, both cooked to perfection! The cheese plate was good, as was the salad and soup. But mostly, I love the atmosphere and the piano player and the smell and feel of the place. They always have wood burning fireplaces going, which I love and the live piano player was right next to us and still the right level. We've sat at the other end of the room before and also felt it was the right level.

Great place! Someday I want to spend the night as well.

Dining at Smokehouse Restaurant at Antrim 1844 was absolutely delightful! The mansion was decorated for Christmas, which made it even more beautiful. The food was fantastic - such a treat! - and the service couldn't have been better. It amazed me how perfectly timed every course was. This is an excellent restaurant for a holiday or celebration dinner!

We attended as a group of 4 to celebrate birthdays. This is not our first trip to the restaurant. However there was just something a little off with the service this time.
We arrived about 5 minutes before our designated reservation time of 7pm and so were escorted to the veranda to wait for the drawing room to clear. After a couple of minutes and no one came for us we returned to the main hallway where the hostess greeted us as if we had just arrived.

We were given menus to choose cocktails and the appetizers were passed for a few minutes until we were seated. Our server came and greeted us pleasantly but seemed a bit overwhelmed.

After she took our dinner and wine orders it was a long time until she came back. Eventually apologized for the delay saying that the wine order had somehow wiped out our dinner orders. So everything was off kilter after that.

We got wrong items, there were delays etc. just not the usual experience we’ve had at Antrim before I’m sorry to say.

Waited 35 minutes for bottle of wine. Waiter was not waiting on us either , they had a regular staff doing most of the service. Very disappointed with our Thanksgiving dinner here this year. No one even said they were sorry about the wait for wine which would have helped. The fact they ignored us and other diners had to complain as well was not the service we expect from this place .

This was an extremely disappointing experience. The atmosphere an location was great however it took a turn when we sat down for the meal. We were seated at a two top with both chairs facing the window with no view. The service was rushed at first then slow at the end. The wine pairings did not match the entree’s. Just an overall disappointment.

First thesis review was a wine dinner and may not represent the restaurant overall. The place was crowded and noisy which does not fit the atmosphere. The service was terrible. Wine was poured as they talked about the first two wines and everyone sampling we were waiting. They started to bring out food and still no wine. We complained to the winery hosting and were finally brought the wine. The food was spotty. Some courses were good. However, you could tell by the plating that food was being rushed out. Also the hot foods were not hot. The worse was the ribeye. It was extremely salty like a pretzel and overcooked. When I complained to the waiter no response. I do not blame the kitchen entirely. The management decision to have so many meals pushed out in order to make a bigger profit was also to blame. I would consider giving the chef another try but they really need to work on the service.

Absolutely magnificent! What an experience. From the beginning we were personally escorted to a beautiful living room to enjoy a cocktail and hors d'oeuvres. The mansion is stunning and appointed with beautiful period antiques! I put my selection in the hands of their Sommelier, Sarah and she choose a wonderful red wine for me to begin the evening. My husband enjoyed his favorite gin! After exploring the mansion we were escorted to a lovely table by one of the many fireplaces! The meal was perfect, from the first course to the delightful dessert including the complimentary wine pairings and espresso ending! The lamb was tender and cooked to perfection. We especially loved the Amuse-bouche, a beautifully seared rock fish paired with a tomato orzo! My husband had the filet with the foie gras that he said was the best he’d ever eaten. We ended our evening with a tour of the unbelievable wine seller. Thank you Sarah for making this one of the best dining experiences we have ever had! 5 Stars and then some! We will return, hopefully to enjoy one of Sarah’s wine classes!
