Had the pleasure of lunch today. The fish chowder with Texas toast was excellent. I was surprised that the place was not busy. Cleanliness was first rate. I will be back!

We wanted to go to to the platter, which was rated number one, but they were closed. Monday night. So we tried the 2nd street Bistro. Fabulous meal! My wife had a pork tenderloin. Uniquely seasoned, and great! I had their evening special herb encrusted chicken. Orgasmic! Loved the food!

Very good pull pork sandwich, spiced just right, desert was super. Have eaten there before and service is always attentive without pushy. Love that they use local foods when available.

My wife and I celebrated valentines day on Wednesday and had a delicious, quiet dinner. The pork brisket was outstanding and they have a nice selection of bottled beer. Service was good too.

Simply awful service. We had reservations and when we got to the restaurant, there were no available tables. We went to the bar and while one of the wait staff apologized profusely for not having our table reserved, she seemed too frazzled to understand that we were okay eating at the bar. After about 10 minutes of us saying this,... More

Why is this the number one rated restaurant in Ashland? I'll never know. What started off as a quiet evening turned sour as the waitress started ignoring us. She would walk back and forth past the table and would not make eye contact with us even when we tried on multiple occasions to get her attention by saying "excuse me... More

Had an evening meal here and food was excellent. The waiter provided a very friendly service. There was a guitarist playing during the evening and he was very good. The chef came out to see us and to check that everything was fine. He confirmed that all the food was from local sources and prepared from scratch. Good value for... More
