I took my family to the Artists colony to celebrate Mother's Day. It was a huge mistake. It started with a sticky table. Then the bad experience continued with a rude waitress. When approached and asked if we were ready, my stepmother and I asked each other, " are you ready"? At wish after a moment of silence the waitress... More

The little diner atmosphere is quite nice. It was very quiet and relaxed. The server did a pretty good job but the best part was the food. My wife had a Tenderloin which was moist and flavorful. My turkey manhattan was sensational. Everything was full of a flavor and was extremely impressive. The onion soup was spot on! One small... More

We enjoyed a late dinner (7-8 PM). Staff were very friendly and conversational, but not intrusive. The menu was varied and unique. We tried the Chicken Pot Pie and Southwestern Potato Soup, which were both excellent. The staff was also knowledgeable about local events and helpful. Tom and Jan Collins

Visited for a light dinner. The Four Cheese Tomato soup was very delicious. So creamy and full of flavor. I had that along with a pretty good salad. Service was fast and pleasant waiter.

We tend to eat here as last resort due to its close proximity to our B&B. The broccoli slaw is wonderful and I've rarely been given a poor meal.

Only one dinner visit but everything was pretty much average. Nothing bad, nothing great. Chairs a little uncomfortable. Service was above average.

Ate here for the breakfast buffet two mornings as well as lunch one day. Buffet was serve yourself but service for the beverages or anything else was poor--felt totally ignored and had most of my breakfast eaten before anyone ever came to serve. Lunch service was better and the soup and pot pie were wonderful. Really liked the menu for... More

A satisfying meal for Easter--many choices on the buffet, from breakfast to dinner! Attentive wait staff and a New England feel to the dining room made for a nice family meal.
