Great atmosphere, perfect service and excellent food. This place should be rated #1 restaurant and bar in Abingdon, no other comes close! Stuffed mushroom appetizer was prepared to perfection as was the stuffed chicken breast and scallops. We chose the pumpkin cheesecake for dessert, flawless! Do yourself a favor and go, you won't be disappointed. generous with their wine too.
