Expected this to be one of those neat hidden places with a unique atmosphere and better than average food as it was recommended by a local. The dinning room was just ordinary so we took to the back sunroom with dying plants and a non-hidden service counter. This could have been so neat. Of course I had to try their... More

Their speciality Crab Louis was excellent as was their homemade soup. Lovely upstairs room overlooking the hustle of Main Street. Very attentive service, quiet, relaxing spot. Coffee and water were refilled without asking. Reasonable prices for lunch. Shared Bread and Butter pudding. Huge portion, average taste, needed a rum sauce.....

My wife and daughter went the gluten free route and loved the somewhat spicy Mac and cheese and chicken dish....they loved both. My other daughter and I had the Tavern burger and opened with grilled shrimp....they were very good. The tasty crap louie, was a... More

We visited on a Friday night, busy but not overly so. We waited long enough for menus we were looking for them ourselves when they were plopped down in front of us without a word. The service continued to be poor with a general " how long until you get out" attitude. The food arrived and was very average, nothing... More

Small room with too many tables, there was only one wait person (he was cranky, sweaty, older - nothing wrong with older if you are an energetic, pleasant person);the place was busy (all-you-can-eat fried chicken night); nothing about it was out of the ordinary; sent back the mac & cheese (dried and stringy); PASS on the

A small restaurant but with BIG food. We ate there and had the chicken puff pastry. It is like a chicken pot pie but with the pastry only on top. Wow, very tasty and the pastry was very flaky. The service was excellent, and prices are good too.
