About Us

Ariana’s Restaurant Front Room

Our Restaurant

Ariana’s Restaurant at The Lyme Inn is the new incarnation of Ariana’s Restaurant, offering the same menus in a different venue. This new endeavor is the culmination of some 40 years of culinary adventures.

We offer two dining experiences; The Front Room, very much like our previous Orford establishment, and The Back Room, a more casual, pub-like experience. Both spaces offer our Ariana’s Favorites menu and our nightly Additions menu.

We also have a smaller, private dining room, The Tasting Room, which may be booked for parties of 15 or fewer.

Along with our extensive wine list, we enjoy a full bar and beer on tap here at The Lyme Inn.

Our Philosophy

  • To offer a range of menu choices reflecting many different palates.
  • To source seasonal, quality and local whenever possible.
  • Children are always welcome. We do not offer a children’s menu but are happy to make smaller portions of our menu items with fair pricing.

Food Sources

At Ariana’s, we pride ourselves on using fresh, local, and sustainably raised products. We work with local farms for much of our product and, for items not locally available, use ethical suppliers a bit farther away. We do not source from factory farms. Our ultimate goal is to offer the best quality product, and local, sustainable, and ethically raised provides that.

Special Diets

All food can taste incredible with some thought and creativity. Ariana’s has always worked to accommodate special dietary needs. Our sauces are all gluten free by default, as we create them by reduction, avoiding the need to thicken with flour. We regularly offer vegan, vegetarian, gluten-free, and dairy free menu items. And should you have a special need, simply call ahead and we will do what we can to adapt our cuisine to your needs.
