A La Carte vs. Prix Fixe


We were wondering when the term “a la carte”
became synonymous with “expensive”?

Well, it’s not at the Greenville Inn!

We view “a la carte” as meaning: “Dining Your Way”!

When we go on vacation ourselves, we steer away from  “prix fixe” menus because we rarely get what we want (usually a very limited menu) and not very generous portions.  Some people feel like they are getting a “bargain” when they get a predetermined number of courses…but is it a bargain if you aren’t getting full portions or food you want?

When we offer packages that include a predetermined number of courses, (“Stay & Dine” or  “Shop, Stay & Dine”) you can be guaranteed you can choose from our FULL  (a la carte) menu and the portions are not just a “sampling”.

So, next time you are deciding on any restaurant…don’t let the “Prix Fixe Bargain Factor” dictate your decision…choose a restaurant whose menu has many choices with full portions…life is short…why not have it “your way?”

We are working on our Summer 2010 menu with a chef that some of you might already know…

Leaves are starting to turn

We’ve been noticing that some of the trees are starting to turn color…fall is here!

We’ve been experiencing perfect fall weather…cooler temperatures and sunny, clear days… a perfect combination!

FallFoliage1 are still around.  Many of our guests are still enjoying moose safaris with our expert guides.

Chef Howard has been getting rave reviews!  The restaurant is open Monday-Saturday evenings until Columbus Day.  We will, however, be open on Sunday, October 11th, which will be our last day for the season.

Jeff will continue to make his delicious breakfasts every morning!
