The American Hotel is one of the few historic hotels remaining in the United States. Here, visitors can come and visit and take a trip back in time to the mid-1920s when smoking rooms and jackets were commonplace among velvet furniture and strong whiskey served on the rocks. During the summertime.
Of course, The American Hotel is more than just a hotel, it houses an excellent restaurant as well. There are multiple dining areas depending on what kind of experience guests are looking for. The Main Dining Room is a lively and rambunctious room that holds about 80 people while the Drew Room is a quieter, more private area for those looking for an intimate evening. The food is quintessential American cuisine from across the United States.

Tha American Hotel is always perfection! The staff is always incredibly friendly, the food is terrific! They have mastered Social Distancing, so there is never an uncomfortable moment. Definitely try the Rainbow Trout appetizer. Always delicious!

We sat in the back garden. Tables are well spaced, heat lamps helped, but be sure your feet are well insulated.
Food was delicious and Dennis was an excellent server.

Always enjoy coming here for a well executed classic line up. However, was very disappointed that after explicitly booking the table by the fireplace, it was given away because I came in 8 minutes after my booking time (when standard restaurant practice is to hold a table for 15 mins).

American hotel is one of my favorite restaurants. I was super excited to spend my anniversary there.
The service was good, waitress nice but certainly wasn’t amazing. When asked the different ways in which they prepare the flounder she gave a very short answer.
Ambiance never disappoints though.
My lobster came and was undercooked. Presentation was amazing but the fact that the chef and servers allowed an obviously undercooked lobster to be delivered to the table I think is awful. Totally fixable with a broiler but then I’m not eating with my husband....
They definitely need to up their game in the kitchen.

Sat on the back patio for lunch, it was all that I have come to expect from this place. Good service, good food, nice atmosphere. The ladies room was a mess but that is because people are slobs.

It was such a perfect experience in every way! The weather was beautiful, so we were able to sit in the back garden. The service was impeccable. We went for brunch, and shared several appetizers, the smoked rainbow trout NEVER disappoints, the chilled half lobster, shrimp cocktail, and oysters were so good!

We love this restaurant. Our meal was exceptional! Halibut with lobster sauce surrounded by diced tomatoes, Brussel sprouts! It was the evening’s special. All four of us had it and we were thrilled!
Service was lovely. Good old fashioned ambience with carpeted room and low ceilings...ie less noise!

Service was atrocious!!! Server stood there with our entrees waiting for our appetizers to be cleared! Water never refilled, just felt like we were being ignored. They made up for it on the end by offering us two glasses of champagne for our anniversary. Too many other great restaurants in the area but I would stop in for a drink at the beautiful charming bar .

My husband and I have gone to the American Hotel for years and have generally been pleased with our experience there. However, when I took a friend there for lunch recently, I was so surprised by the poor service, the haughty attitude of the servers and the less than delicious food that I would have to think twice before returning. American Hotel, you need to get your act together!
