For 17 years, the Cooperage Inn has been serving generous portions of high end “casual country cooking.” It offers extensive lunch and dinner menus, daily specials, a grand Sunday buffet brunch, prix fixe menu and small and large plate offerings.

The Inn serves “comfort food at its finest,” and the bar features a pub-grub blackboard menu that has something for every diner. Live music can be heard on Friday and Saturday nights and Wednesday is “Girls Night Out.” Happy hour is Monday through Friday from 5 to 7 p.m.

Theme dinners are featured throughout the year, such as murder mystery wine dinners, a summer lobster clambake and a huge fall festival celebration, which is held outdoors with live music, full bar, homemade barbecue, pony rides, face-painting and a hay playground.

The Inn is famous for its freshly baked pies, including coconut creme and key lime, and its carrot layer cake, which can be ordered and gift-wrapped for any occasion.
