Birthday Dinner with reservations
Oct 26, 2014 by: Maggie D from Harpers Ferry, West Virginia
Made reservations in person 1 week prior to our requested day for 5:00 PM seating for a particular table in a quite corner of the main dining room. Upon arrival at exactly 5:PM the Hostess informed me that she could not give me the table I requested as someone came in a little earlier than us and wanted to sit there so we can just look around and pick another one or wait 20 - 40 minutes until they finish (restaurant was empty, why couldn't she have sat them somewhere else ?) She acted like this was a routine occurrence when it comes to reservations, they mean nothing. Service was just ok, not up to fine dining standards, some of the food tasted questionable, the only 2 items that were halfway decent were the Filet Mignon and the French Onion Soup. I had picked this restaurant for the reviews on their Beef Wellington since this is one of my husbands favorites, but this one was " Not Worth The Money " also as some reviewers mentioned they definitely need to do some refurbishing on the entrance and main walkways from the parking lot, a little dangerous if walking in heels. Very disappointing evening, will not be revisiting this establishment!
Birthday dinner at OSMI
Sep 24, 2014 by: jaslederer from Charlotte, NC
Five of us celebrated a birthday at OSMI. Had not been there in a long time, but it is still a very place for a meal and the food is still very good. Entrees included prime rib, scallops, and salmon. All were good. Service was also very good.
Elegant but Relaxed Sunday Brunch

Wonderful historic setting and building offer a fun but somewhat modest Sunday brunch. The menu includes something for just about everyone, including a carving station. Seafood items or exotic selections are not typically included.While this is not a large scale buffet, the food is very good, fresh and kept filled throughout the serving time. Salad, fresh fruit and a balanced approach to food groups, especially carbs, make this a healthier-than-usual buffet selection.The service is top notch. Enjoy the view - and you will not be rushed by the staff. Ample free parking. Very small but charming, cozy bar,
Charming Old Place with really good food!

Enjoyed the entire experience, staff was friendly and food was really good. Very diverse menu with fresh seafood with local flavor. Didn't get to see the ghost that supposedly resides there, but still had a nice evening with my wife. While eating saw a deer walking around in the woods just across the street at the entrance to the George Washington Monument.
Go with the menu, not the brunch
Jul 14, 2014 by: MarylandCatmom from Maryland
My husband and I recently had the Sunday brunch at OSMI and were disappointed. The salad "toppings" numbered about six or so and there were several dressings. Everything on the salad bar was fresh. The eggs were also flavorful. My husband felt that the meatloaf was dry. I do not eat red meat so was pretty well shut-out when it came to any animal protein. A fish and/or chicken would have been appreciated but there was only beef (sliced and the meatloaf) and sausage, which I assume was pork, although I admit that I did not ask and there were no signs indicating what things were. The first vegetable offering was broccoli in a heavy cheese sauce. I wish I had waited because that was replaced with steamed vegetables. We have ordered from the menu and enjoyed the food, so that is your better bet when dining here. We were also charged per soda consumed, which is increasingly not the industry standard, so that upped the price.
