Named after the inn's original owner, Nathaniel Palmer, the Inn at Crystal Lake's Palmer House Pub has been recognized by The Boston Globe as a perfect spot to relax with a drink and some delicious food (perhaps a bowl of Tim's award-winning chili). Take a seat at the gorgeous walnut bar that originally came from Boston's Ritz-Carlton. In the summer, a seat out on the patio with a glass of wine might be the perfect way to end the day.

Our pub has a full liquor license and we specialize in classic cocktails like Martinis and Manhattans - but innkeeper, Tim, is usually behind the bar and willing to whip up almost any kind of drink!

In addition to the pub and dining room menus below, we also prepare nightly specials to reflect the freshest local ingredients.

We do try and keep this site updated with any changes to our menu, but don't be surprised if you come for dinner and things are just slightly different. We like to mix things up every once in while!

Attending a show at the Stone Mountain Arts Center? Come on in for dinner beforehand - we're one of the closest restaurants to the Arts Center - only 15-20 minutes door to door!

Reservations are highly recommended (for both the dining room and pub) - especially on the weekends. We typically close the kitchen by 8:30pm, so please plan accordingly.
