4 of us went to dinner on a Saturday nite. We had made reservations and were seated promptly and treated to live music. Service was excellent and the food was very good. We each had a different seafood entry and enjoyed it. Only negative - very warm in the restaurant.

With the high prices and a different menu It would be decent. I was recommended this establishment by a close friend of the owner. I was recommended to try certain dishes... The building is great love the old house and history of the McLeod family... Baked feta was dry and horrible. Wine suggesting was beyond minimal. I like wine. I... More

Went to our FAVORITE restaurant last food. Food was very good as usual BUT we ordered a glass of Merlot. The waitress asked if we would like to try Bogle Phantom. In the book of wines, Bogle merlot was $8/28 so we said sure. She brought the bottle to the table and I thought it was just to show us.... More

For the 3rd year in a row I took my Mother to McLeods for her birthday. I live in PA and call ahead for reservations. I also eat a plant based diet and given notice the chef always prepares an amazing meal for me! My Mother enjoys her fancy dinner and I am always extremely happy with my beautifully prepared...

We called for a table for 3 a few days ahead. The appetizers were amazing. Goat cheese cooked in tomato bisque with some special bread was just amazing! The entrees were prepared to perfection. My husband had the duck and said it was prepared extremely well, I had the special fish of the day. It was also very well prepared... More

Members of my "Seniors on Move" group met at the Bistro this week. Lunch is my favorite meal there because of the lucious "Pecan-crusted chicken" salad, which is not on the menu but is always a "special". The servers even know that is what I will order. The breast of chicken is coated with pecan bits and the salad contains... More
