Mahle is the best hidden secret!

Mahle House has exceptionally wonderful food with local ingredients. If you have not been you are missing out! The food is always delicious and the staff are friendly and knowledgeable. The wine list is decent. They passionately support the Coco Cafe which employs people with disabilities.

My boyfriend and I visited Mahle house in the off season in October and it lived up to its expectation. Our waitress was very knowledgeable on wines and helped us with the menu. The portions very large, well displayed and most off all beyond delicious. We also fell in love with the setup and vintage displays in the house.

This is a great restaurant. We go there with friends, as it is a way to drive home after you have finished your meal. The service is efficient, and the specials are a good item, to choose from. The atmosphere is wonderful, homey. We go back there for their creme burlee . It is one of my favorites at this... More

18 of us visited the restaurant after a Christmas show in Cedar. The menu was extensive and on Thursday and Sundays they have a special where you get an Appy, main course, and dessert for a set price. There are limited options for this choice.Everything went well with the food and the service, however they missed my wife's meal so... More

Came here for the first time and we will return! The food was freshly prepared. We started with the Navaho bread and hummus along with a salad....delicious! Our meals consisted of prosciutto wrapped chicken breast and lentil wrapped phylo. Very tasty and creative. The service was great and of course we had to get deserts even though we were very...

The ambience is upper-class homey, so it is comfortable and quite private. The service is efficient and non-intrusive, yet friendly. The food is tasty, fresh and prepared and plated well. I believe the fact that our lamb leg was quite tough, was an anomaly, and I would choose to eat there again. The rest of the food was very tasty.... More

The location is off the beaten path which I find alluring. Family run for decades and the passion shows! The menu is superb and the service sublime! The presentation of the dishes is absolutely exquisite and the wine selections are carefully made and feature many local favourites. My love brought me here for dinner and the staff made our evening... More

If you want to get out of the rut of always ordering the same thing at your favourite eating place, then let the Mahle House's Chef's Adventure treat your taste buds. Don't be shy, take 3 other people so all 4 each have a different dish for each course. This IS the best way to get introduced to some terrific... More
