Mount Vernon Inn

01 | 05

Savor the flavors of early America, just 15 miles from Washington, D.C. 

The first president hosted hundreds of guests at his home each year. The Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant, located at George Washington’s historic estate, continues that tradition of hospitality. 

Guests can enjoy southern fare such as fried green tomatoes, chicken and waffles, and one of George Washington’s favorite foods — hoecakes. 

Did you know that George Washington operated one of the largest distilleries in America? At the Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant, you can sample George Washington’s whiskey, made using 18th-century methods at Mount Vernon’s reconstructed distillery. 

Brunch is available on Saturday and Sunday and features Belgian waffles, french toast, omelets, and mimosas.

The Mount Vernon Inn Restaurant is open for lunch, dinner, and weekend brunch. 

Reservations are recommended for dine-in service; estate admission is not required to dine.
