Birthday Dinner

My husband and I had dinner at this Restaurant and enjoyed it very much. The food was excellent and the servers were very friendly and the only down side was that the service was rather slow and it took a while to get a menu. But, most importantly, the food was excellent. We will be back.

We have never been disappointed with the adventure in dining evening. Make sure you have lots of time and have at least four people in your group. Always a surprise!

Six of us visited Mahle House in Cedar yesterday. On Thursday and Sunday, this restaurant offers a 'Fixed Price' menu in addition to their usual à la carte offerings. It was a Sunday – so, everyone ordered the prix fixe ($35/person): 2 appetizer choices, 2 main choices and 2 dessert choices. The meals were excellent. Four of us enjoyed horseradish... More

We were the first to be seated upon opening, and so we enjoyed the extra care and attention of our server. And yet even as the place filled for supper, we never were ignored or had to wait for service. Professional, delicious food, and a great first diner date for a new couple. Will go back when we return to... More

This was my first visit to the Mahle House, and it was everything I could have hoped for and more! The atmosphere in the vintage home was amazing! So much history! The service was impeccable, and the meal was out of this world! I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an amazing dining experience!

Another regular place that we send out of town guests. Great service, ambiance, and delicious food. Great wine selection. A limited menu is all that prevents 5 star rating. Locally sources meats, cheeses, seafood and locally grown produce (some in the garden outside!). You'll love it.

This is in a cute house pretty much in the middle of nowhere - it obviously has a good reputation because most people would have to drive at least 30 minutes to get here. The food was excellent as was the service. We were vacationing in the area and were surprised to find this dining gem.

This restaurant has a beautiful property and cute bunnies for your kids to enjoy watching. Once inside we were seated and ready to enjoy a wonderful birthday dinner experience. We took our 9 year old daughter and the one thing we found is they could use a small kids menu. She is not a fussy eater, but a bit of... More

My wife really enjoys this place. I am more of a simple food person and find it to be somewhat on the expensive side and leave still wanting more to eat. That said, the food is well prepared with freash ingredients. The service is excellent.

My husband and I recently ate at the Mahle House for adventurous Wednesday. I was shocked at how much food you get for the price. It was almost too much. The portions were a great size for sharing and everything was delicious. We also ordered a flight of wine to accompany the meal, which was a great way to try... More
