Service can be a bit spotty, especially if there are a lot of vacationers in town. Steaks are broiled and done exactly to order. Coffee is good and to... More

Was delightfully happy to hear that The Library had a new chef. We went with friends for an adult dinner date and had a wonderful time. Many wines to choose from and great beers on tap. We loved our appetizers and lingered awhile before ordering dinner which was Fantastic!! We had a chance to speak with the new Executive Chef... More

What a wonderful experience to be able to eat inside Midland's old library. Beautiful historical building and the food was phenomenal.

The food and service was excellent in an interesting dining room ( a converted library)! Although dress was casual, the menu was first-class and the variety of choice was very good.

My husband and I stopped in on a Friday evening around 7:30. The restaurant was not busy and we were excited to hear that one of the specials that night was Osso Bucco. We really enjoyed the meal and dessert and found the prices to be very fair. I fine dinner with very little planning.
