The staff are very nice; several young ladies who obviously mean well but have had little training and don't seem to know which sections or tables they are responsible for - that is managements' fault entirely - not theirs. The people who run this restaurant need to give these charming servers' some guidance and clean up the shabby atmosphere. This... More

We have eaten here on several occasions after a day hiking and swimming at Awenda Prov. Park. Always have had really good food and wonderful service. The prices are a little steep but nice for the occasional visit. On Friday, we sat outside on the patio, where they let us sit with our dog (it was too hot for her... More

Visiting the area for the first time, we thought we would try The Library to celebrate our wedding anniversary. The atmosphere was nice but the food was awful. We both ordered steaks which were the toughest we've ever had. I couldn't finish mine which is a rarity. When we told the server she said that they can't guarantee the quality... More

What a pleasant evening out with family. All the Salads and Appetizers were great. Salmon was delicious as was the rack of Lamb. Desserts were uniquely served. Service was on the slow side, which is normal. A good time had by all.

This restaurant has wonderful food upstairs - but we especially like the downstairs "study" - on weekends there is live music which is always great and a lively crowd. There is tasty food available if you want something light to go with beer on tap or a glass of wine on a Friday night - coconut shrimp, sweet potato fries,... More

Enjoyed a wonderful Barrielicious meal here and went down and enjoyed the best music ever. Been back twice to enjoy the meals offered in this deal. Wonderful place.

The dinner was excellent but what I must talk about is the study downstairs. They have acoustic music and it was the best time. They have this every weekend and totally would recommend for a great night out.

It's rare for a casual fine dining establishment to be open on Monday, that's what initially brought us here. We were happy we came - great restaurant! Atmosphere was beautiful (mind you a little cold sitting by the windows during winter months). Service was quick, friendly and comfortable. Food was great! Prices were very reasonable (was expecting to pay much... More

This was a very nice restaurant the food was good, but it was a very busy evening and they were understaffed so we wait for our meal. The staff were doing the best they could so it was good that we were not in a hurry.
