I was here for a Wedding Reception. The Restaurant is beautiful as well as the Reception area and
Ballroom we were in. The social hour was held in the reception area and offered a Bar and some mighty
fine appetizers. ( did you ever notice those few that like to push and shove and eat right over the food
and not keep going, like they were not going to get their share? ( ugh! ) You know who you are! Fill your
plate, in a respectable amount and sit at a table or wonder around socializing and not with your mouth
The food and service is impeccable! To start, I had a Crab cake appetizer ( which could have served as
my entree ) it was pure lump crab meat with a delicious bed of a fresh herb Roasted Red Pepper Coulie.
For my Entree, I decided to try a local favorite of Sautéed Wild Rockfish with Cherrystone Clam sauce.
This restaurant has only been open for 8 years. Truly outstanding. If I lived in the area, it would be one of
my favorite spots.
They have beautiful grounds and patio's and a one acre pond.
Lunch and Dinner Menu's change monthly, using the best local ingredients available.
To Quote: This 1919 farmhouse opened as a restaurant in 2000, after a massive renovation that added
banquet space and a commercial kitchen. The inn suffered from a revolving door of chefs until Paul E.
Hajewski arrived about two years later. His New American menu is rooted firmly in traditional Maryland
fare and emphasizes local ingredients, but it is never mundane country inn food. The dining rooms of the
main house still bear the decorations from when it was used as a show house to raise money for the
nearby Olney Theater. Comfortable Chippendale armchairs are pulled up to heavily clothed tables in
rooms displaying handsome wooden floors. Fireplaces abound. It's a jewel worth seeking out.

I attended an outdoor reception at Brookeville Farms. The weather gods had smiled upon us this day,
and the weather was absolutely gorgeous, which made the reception very pleasant. The restaurant has a
large gazebo, and that's where the drink and heavy hors d'ouvres stations were located. Tables with
chairs were in the grass surrounding the gazebo. Service was wonderful (and the host of the reception
also mentioned that the staff had been very accommodating to work with in organizing the event). The
spinach triangle appetizer was to-die-for.
This is definitely a place I'll look into for having a special occasion dinner.
