Casual and Friendly Dining
The Esmeralda Inn is a special place for dining with a friendly and casual atmosphere. This is the perfect spot, whether you are planning on dinner for two or a group of up to sixty-two.


20140804-Esmeralda-D7K_1458_2500pxThe Esmeralda Restaurant is becoming a very popular spot for Rehearsal Dinners, Receptions, Birthday Dinners and a myriad of other celebrations; this means the Restaurant is sometimes closed for private parties, so we highly recommend making reservations.

There are New Menus and New Hours in The Restaurant!

NEW Lunch Menu 2015

NEW Dinner Menu 2015


We prefer to use local vegetables and meats whenever possible, and the freshest seafood available. The menus reflect our commitment to providing the highest quality ingredients possible! Our vision is to keep people in the community working for each other. In addition to our regular menu, we feature blackboard specials, offering the freshest of what is available for the season.


Wine, Beer and Cocktails now available at The Esmeralda!

We have an exceptional Wine List as well as a diverse selection of Local Craft Beers. We also have a variety of cocktails available. This is a great final touch to your dining experience!  Cocktails are available after 3:00pm.

There are a couple of changes that go along with the new license. 1. By law, we can no longer permit brown bagging. 2. We can no longer offer complimentary wine to our overnight guests.

Wine Down Wednesdays: Come dine with us on Wednesdays from 5:00-9:00 and enjoy a bottle of select wine with your meal for half price.
