The restaurant offers three rooms with three different atmospheres. The brick and wood paneled David Armstrong Room is casual during the day and dramatic at night with its high ceilings, huge fireplace and artwork by the late local artist for whom the room is named. For a more formal ambience, The Grass Room is suited for small weddings, bridal and baby showers, private parties, meetings, conferences and holiday dinners. The Grass Room was built nearly 10 years ago to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the country inn restaurant. The high ceiling and large glass windows make it bright and cheerful year-round, and the fireplace makes it warm and cozy during the winter. Dolph plays classic pop music on the piano six nights a week. (The restaurant is closed on Tuesdays.)
