Ordered surf and turf but waitress failed to order the surf. Very disappointed. Also I asked for salt and pepper. I had to get up and take it off another table myself.

I took my parents to the famous Roycroft for dinner. I really talk it up as I;'ve had wonderful meals there. However, the menu is very limited now. The duck was not on the menu, but it was on the online menu. Inquiries revealed that the supplier did not send enough duck nor could they get any mote. So my parents split the rack of lamb. It was undercooked but no one checked on us after the meal was served. They might have sent it back to be cooked a little more. The waiter was obviously overworked. Unfortunately, we will not be returning any time soon.

Wonderful experience, as always. It was quite busy for a Sunday night, and our server seemed to have a lot of tables, but she was very attentive without being intrusive. The food was delicious…filet perfectly cooked, scallops tender and tasty. So glad to live 3 miles from the Roycroft!

For me, Roycroft's brunch leaves nothing to be desired. Staff is friendly and attentive at all levels. The food is delicious and has so many options.

They should seat families with young / loud children is a separate area. The ambience for the first 10 minutes was excellent.We were seated in front of the fireplace and could hear the musician playing an acoustic guitar. Once a large extended family with numerous young children entered the space, the vibe /ambience turned very poor.

The grounds and the restaurant are beautiful. The wait staff and all bussers were friendly and competent. Food was ok, brunch buffets aren’t my thing, but the omelette was delicious.
Enjoyed our experience.

Wonderful atmosphere, the food was fantastic. There was a live band that was extremely loud and we weren't even seated in the same room. When booking a reservation I would recommend to ask for seating away from the band.

The ambiance, as always, was nothing short of sublime, and the food was good, but the server disregarded almost every fundamental rule of good service, and so I had to give a lower rating, this time

The choices were diverse: beef, chicken, duck, scallops, pork, salmon and vegan. We had braised pork and sea scallops -- delish. The place is beautiful. We ate in the library near a huge fireplace that was real wood burning. The bar area is like a salon. The no corking fee on Wednesday meant that we brought a wine bottle that was special. And, they have sliver size dessert in case you just want a taste.

Horrible service and even worse food. I had heard so many good things, but it was awful. I certainly won’t go back. Very unfortunate since the venue is beautiful.

The Roycroft is good anytime, but even more so during COVID upsurge. We were having a small Family Reunion and needed a safe, outdoor setting for us to gather.
I knew the peristyle would be a good option regardless of the weather. We couldn't have been more satisfied. We were a good distance from other diners and even had some space between ourselves. Our server, Emily was delightful in spite of it being an extremely humid day, she was witty, watchful, and prompt. Our food was delicious!

We ate out on the beautiful patio on a warm summer night listening to the band inside. The atmosphere is very relaxed and we didn't feel rushed at all. Love that you can order a "sliver" of dessert.
