Ideal for a special occasion! Bring a full wallet as you will want to start with a signature drink to sip along side a starter, huge shrimp atop fresh greens and you can practically skip the salad ;) The entrees are delicious and perfectly executed. I'm unable to recommend just one. Save room for dessert !! The best part of... More

Attended the Sunday brunch at "The Olde School" recently. This is a nice place. The service is as it should be and there is a piano player. But I found the offerings to be limited and on the more breakfast than lunch side. There was an omelette station that all seemed to enjoy and a couple of egg dishes with... More

Enjoyed a nice Valentine's Day Sunday brunch at the Olde School restaurant. Dress code would be smart casual but some people were in jeans. Make reservations is probably not necessary but we did anyway. Parking lot is small approximately 50 cars, enter the main entrance of restaurant to a small flight of stairs to the left. A reservation desk with... More

Wonderful ambiance, generous servings of great good, amazing service and surprisingly great prices. (Really not much more than an East Sides...for much better quality and atmosphere.). Love the piano, as well...again, it's a really nice atmosphere.

My wife and I went for the Valentines Day special dinner yesterday, and it was wonderful, I have been going to The Olde Schoolhouse since it opened, and have always been pleased. Took my twin daughters there for their 16th, 19th, and 21st birthdays, anniversaries etcetera, and have always been happy with it. You will be hard pressed to find... More

For a fancy restaurant service is not great. The owner is so busy yelling at staff in from of customers they are always on edge. This takes away form the nice quiet atmosphere you would expect in a fancy restaurant. Food not enough for what you pay

When we walked in, the doorway was jammed with people trying to get their coats and also people waiting to be seated and... More
