Excellent food and service!

It's our "go to" spot. We've spent many birthdays, holidays and even engagement parties at Home. Our friends and family love their creative menu, and personable staff!

The small dining room that can hold 26 patrons at one time is furnished with leather high-back chairs, leather sofas and coffee tables - just like like sitting in a living room - a unique dining experience. There is also high top tables in the bar area if no space in the 'living room'. Local brews are on the menu... More

This restaurant has improved dramatically since it opened a few years ago. Buffalo mac and cheese is awesome. Bar is a great place to gather for good cocktails and nice conversation.

My husband and I had supper at The Home Restaurant after reading the reviews. We were not disappointed. We were met by Steve, the Bartender and father of the owner. My husband enjoyed his beer, wine and espresso with his blackened, seared tuna. We even had room for dessert. The restaurant was clean, there were lots of servers/waiters who were... More

We met friends and sat in the Dining Room. It was a nice bright environment and table placement allowed us sufficient privacy to have our conversations and enjoy each other's company without overhearing others and vice versa. The choices presented by the menu and the specials proved a challenge to select and all were very happy with their choices. In... More

my son and girlfriend rave about this place. So they finally took her mom and me to try it. The food was great. It had a homey atmosphere and everyone was very nice. We are having their rehearsal dinner there.

Great seasonal menu. The staff is happy to make changes to the menu for personal taste or dietary restrictions. Fun atmosphere.

I hate to give a negative review to a place that has such great reviews. We visited on Sunday night and should have left when we saw the hallway was filled with 30 or more people waiting for a private party. Waited 20 minutes to be seated in front of the jazz duo. Ordered after a reasonable wait, the waited... More

Dining comfort for everyone- at a table or a big, comfy couch! The food is delicious and the variety can suit just about everyone. Live Blues guitarist was excellent the night I was there. Nobody rushed us through dinner, but the service was appropriately attentive. It was a lovely place to linger over coffee and soak up the Blues.
