We decided to venture to the Inn tonite to sit out and enjoy the weather...what a great decision!!!
We were there relatively early so it was not crowded at all. Had our pick of tables on the back deck with the view of the boulders and the sounds of running water.....We had drinks and wonderful bread basket with tasty olive oil and herbs to dip. We then started with bruschetta and hummous...both of which were very good and large servings. I had the beet carpicio salad with goat cheese, arugula, craisins and sunflower seeds.....My husband had the rigatoni bolgonese......The dishes were presented well and really really good!!! Both dishes were large enough to bring home leftovers!! We will definitely return.
An added bonus for those who use open table.....a table on Wed or Thurs reserved thru OT gets you 1000 dining points!!! Such a deal!

    Quite right! Went based on your comments and found the Inn at St. Peters to be very enjoyable indeed. The venue is lovely, natural beauty, good friendly service and my selections(following your husband's lead) were very good. The bolognese was tasty and rich and the bruschetta very nicely done on this evening. This night the music was not a problem for us. However be aware that live music is a feature which attracts some drinking dinners and the potential for a bit louder evening on those nights could be something which one is not expecting. My wife enjoyed her selections and is looking forward to a return with the next warm summer eve. Oh, the drinks were very good and relatively inexpensive. The personable manager offered us a short tour of the Inn, quite rustic and well done indeed.

      Thanks for the great review ilovesummer and also the second review from Bacchus101. Have been to St Peter's Bakery several times for lunch and the Friday evening pizza dinners. The inn always looked inviting, but I had read mixed reviews prior to these two new comments. While visiting the bakery on a recent Saturday afternoon, I had also heard some nice live music coming from the inn's outdoor porch area. I love the setting and will plan to go once the current heat wave cools off a bit.
