What You'll Get
Without attractive scenery to accompany a satisfying meal, anxious eyes are liable to make mouths nervous by repeatedly pointing out fire exits and knives. Keep eyes entertained during your meal with today's Groupon to The Inn at Evins Mill in Smithville. Choose from the following options:
- For $20, you get a buffet breakfast or lunch package for two (a $40 value).
- For $35, you get a buffet brunch for two (a $70 value).
- For $50, you get a prix-fixe dinner for two (a $100 value).
In a hand-hewn log lodge belying views of a glassy pond, the Inn at Evins Mill combines gourmet recipes with many locally sourced ingredients to create upscale edibles in a verdant woodland atmosphere. Breakfast dishes have included homemade biscuits and gravy, as well as scrambled eggs and red-potato hash, all of which ease wake-up after a long night spent making your bed. Sunday brunches generally take place six holidays a year, Easter and Mother's Day included, with past items including eggs benedict with herb hollandaise, sourdough french toast with spiced apples and whipped cream, and an array of fresh fruit, muffins, and desserts celebrating a day of rest from both work and making prank phone calls.
Evening hours regale guests with a prix-fixe five-course dinner of hors d'oeuvres, soup and salad, a choice of two entrees, and a decadent dessert. Like the weather in a place with ever-changing weather, the menu is ever changing, but has previously offered such starters as wild-mushroom strudel and crawfish-and-corn pancakes, followed by enticing entrees including boursin-stuffed chicken draped in roasted-red-pepper cream sauce, custom-carved beef tenderloin seasoned with ground Ethiopian coffee, and molasses-seared Tasmanian wild king salmon. No matter which meal you choose, a multitude of trails and waterfalls surrounding a historic gristmill await guests to help stoke burgeoning appetites or celebrate quashed cravings amid the eye-catching scenery.
