"Definitely Recommend"

Definitely recommend Dovetail Inn…worth the drive to enjoy a relaxed comfortable atmosphere free of the franchises found in larger towns. Support small town business – great food, great staff, great chef!

"Pleasureable Experience"

I had the pleasure of eating dinner at the Dovetail Inn last evening. The side salad….it is NOT just a side salad, everyone! It had all kinds of good stuff included. The prime rib and mushrooms, though. OH MY! The best I have ever eaten. Make the drive. Take your own cocktails and go. You won’t be sorry! I cannot wait to go back.

I just had one of the best meals I’ve had in a long time. Everything was cooked perfectly. I highly recommend the blackened salmon with baked potato and a side salad with homemade ranch dressing. Service was great they had a lot of help and it was price awesome too. Thank you for an awesome meal!! We will go back for sure.
