Grabbin' A Bite reviews The Winter Inn
GREENVILLE, Mich.-- Upon entering  the Winter Inn in Greenville, you will be instantly transported back in time. The Winter Inn was the place to stay for visitors at the turn of the century.  The train was only three blocks away and the Inn had already established a good service policy by providing a stagecoach to transport their guests to their nearby location. In 1978, renovations began to bring this old building back to glory and by 1980 it was open for business. Recently the new owners, Wade, Becky and Barry Thornton, completed another remodel.  The lobby at the front door takes you into the bar. You will see a  large gas pump and other memorabilia including a hand-crank telephone. Walking through the bar, you can't help but notice all of the beautiful wood and the tin ceiling. There is a parking lot in the back and you can also enter through that door, taking you directly into the restaurant and hotel check-in, thereby avoiding the bar altogether. Again, there are pictures of days gone by and a beautiful carved oak check-in area, where we were greeted warmly and led right to our table. We had to pass through a dining area where there was a large group gathered, perhaps a family party. Then passing through a gorgeous archway,  we went into the front dining area.  There is so much to look at, I almost forgot I was there to eat. The floral carpet and light fixtures overhead are correct for the time period of the building. You can tell special attention was taken for this remodel. So let's see what the food experience was. After seeing the great care that was taken to preset the tables, I was expecting a lot. Sparkling glasses, cloth napkins, pretty little square plates were already on the table; a large pitcher of ice water was delivered immediately.  I was beginning to see that the Winter Inn knows what service is all about. Read more about this story at Grabbin' A Bite
