We cannot begin to say enough about our experience at this 5 star plus restaurant. We were greeted and escorted immediately upon arrival by the restaurant owner. We were given ample time to choose our cocktails and other main entree meal choices. We were NEVER rushed. We thoroughly enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the opportunity to dine at our leisure...

My husband took myself and our three daughters to dinner for Mother's Day. To start off with, it was slow paced, which I absolutely expected. Our server came and asked if we wanted drinks from the bar. I ordered a glass of wine, and my husband a rum and coke. He did not ask our children what they wanted however.... More

This old school house decor cannot be beat. And the atmosphere with a live piano bar is fabulous. And while the quality of the food is good , the menu has not changed in 25 years. Must also say that alcohol prices are reasonable and fair. Good place to celebrate a special event.

Just left there a few mins ago and I could not wait to write this review. This was one of the best filets I've had. Appetizers were amazing. The crab stuffed mushrooms were on par with some of the best I've had in the world. Service and presentation was to perfection. I will go there again and again. Thanks for... More

We have been dining at the Olde School Restaurant for many years. They have excellent food and a truly amazing chef. The menu has many choices, something for everyone. This is one of the few restaurants left with a 'touch of class' in a beautiful and historic setting - they can even show you the exact chair Queen Elizabeth sat... More

I have visited this establishment over a dozen times this past year. I have had a mostly pleasant experience, all but my last visit. The last time I came I was charged extra for supplementing my house salad for a Greek salad, but was not offered the salad with my lamb chops I took home for my girlfriends brother. The... More

We just visited this restaurant again this evening after a 10 year break, since we had children. Our children are 6 and 9 years old and the waitstaff were remarkable with them. Mind you, the children were very quiet and well-behaved but very excited to be eating at a 'fancy' restaurant and the waiter did not disappoint them (or us).... More
