Nice setting, but lots of stairs if you don't get a seat in downstairs rooms. A bit tight to maneuver around hurried waiters when going to the restroom or leaving. Comfy atmosphere with white taxable cloth. Food is delicious. Have visited several times for business dinners.

The Filet is THE best steak I have ever had. I've had nearly everything on the menu, always delicious and the service - top notch!

This meal was a big highlight of our trip. We were graciously greeted, promptly seated to a delightful corner table. We were in for a treat. Our guys ordered the Tuesday night Fried Chicken (I got a few bites and it was delicious). My girlfriend and I had the halibut and oh what a treat. The fish was topped with... More

Salmon was prepared the way I wanted it, crispy well seasoned outside, very raw inside. Chef did great job. Husband enjoyed his filet, we both had martinis. My caramel apple was one of the best I've ever had. We had no room left for dessert. Very nice historic atmoshere and dinner.

It was well prepared and excellent and really was redfish. My wife had the Hot Brown which is a house specialty and was also very good. Service started out on the... More

I have been there twice. Once by myself in which I had a Turkey Sandwich and Cheese Cake. The second time was with my wife in which I had this wonderful, delectable, collage of melted cheeses and asparagus on top of halibut. They have a full bar for your drinking delight in which we partook of the red wine. For... More

Being in a rural area it's nice to fine a restaurant that is a little upscale. It is always a relaxing atmosphere and we never feel rushed. Service and food has always been excellent

Tousey House is a more than century old house in the heart of Burlington converted into a very classy and cozy restaurant. The atmosphere is quiet and quaint. The food has a southern influence with a touch of several more modern dishes as well. They are known for the fired chicken, which is what I still get 90% of the... More
