I've dined here a few times & always had a good experience. A nice setting in a cozy, historic inn. The Sunday Brunch is an excellent deal with tons of choices & all you can eat. Dinner can be pricey (a little overpriced for the area I'd say). The crab dip appetizer and Red Velvet cake house made are excellent.... More

We drive all the way from Washington, DC to eat at this charming restaurant that has very nice food. Is it an urban foodie's destination? No (speaking as a person who has eaten at Michelin Star rated restaurants). In my opinion it does have solid food that I always enjoy. The trip and the cute town are as much part... More

I have eaten here for lunch and dinner several times. It is a lovely restaurant, with great service, and delicious food. The crab cakes are especially good. It is not inexpensive, with more city prices, but not unwarranted. The portions are good, and everything including the desserts, is just tasty. This is the place to go for a nice date,... More

Went here for Sunday brunch. The food was fine. Nothing special. There was crab dip with a smattering of crabmeat. There was an omelette station and carving station, which was staffed when we were first seated, but no one was there when we went to get food. When the person returned, we ordered some omelettes. The crabmeat used at the... More

Six of us went here for a retirement luncheon for one of my friends. The restaurant was chosen because we were meeting two people from Maryland and two had lived in Maryland. Nice historic atmosphere, good food and service. The brie appetizer was delicious. I got the crab cake platter served with broccoli and oven roasted potatoes. The crab cake... More

The company I work for held it's annual employee dinner here last night. It was our first visit. My first impression was that it is a nice historic building with an old fashion decor and a fine dining menu. I was sure this was going to be outstanding as our company secured an unlimited menu. The staff was fully prepared... More

Had a business dinner to attend, and it was our first visit to this place. The dinner was good, although served 30 minutes late. The cash bar was very expensive. Working class people do not like spending $9 per cocktail. Dessert was pretty lousy. During the company president's speech, the wait staff was jabbering non-stop in the back by the... More

Despite the fact that the place was basically empty the waiter failed to attend to our table to expectation. He let glasses empty and disappeared often. Food was tasty but not fine dining quality. The atmosphere remains quaint and inviting.
