all right but pricey

Mrs. K's used to be one of my husband and my favorite special occasion places to visit. But twenty-plus years later now, it's become completely an la carte menu restaurant and quite pricey with food quality not improving with the price. It is still beautiful and historically interesting, but... read more

Over the years, we have eaten here for Thanksgiving, Christmas and Easter meals and assorted special occasions. Most recently, we went for an early Valentine's celebration. The food is always at least good and sometimes wonderful. We all agreed that our most recent selections fell into the good category-- nothing spectacular, but nothing bad either. The setting in this historic... More

I have been to Mrs Kay's a few times. I can't make up my mind. The decor seems like they are trying to look antique, but not all the rooms have the same feeling, decor wise it just does not make it in my book. The food was fine, great crab cakes as expected. Needs to decide on theme and... More

Way too expensive. Except for the decor, there's nothing really special. Food is OK. Did I mention it's expensive? It used to be a place to go for Sunday Brunch or special occasions, but as I mentioned, it's way too expensive.

Mrs. K's Toll House is over 100 and originated as a toll house on the stagecoach road out of Washington. The upstairs dining is a little stodgy and most of their dishes are the standards but always well cooked and seasoned. And if the place is not overly full, it is still a great place for a formal event whether... More

I have lived in the area all my life and have dined at Mrs K's during most of the stages of the restaurant's development. With the change of ownership, the restaurant and the food has changed dramatically for the better. Service is attentive, The ambiance changes with the seasons. The gardens are beautiful in the spring and summer. Crab cakes... More

We try to go to the basement of the restaurant as many times as we can. It is a very good bar with perfect finger food.

Went on a Friday...about. 50/50 mix of retires and business lunchers. Our first visit in, literally, decades. ( and, no....they don't do the relish tray anymore.) It was our Valentines outing, so three courses and wine. Soup and house salad to start. Nothing to write home about. Shrimp & grits and lamb chops followed. Grits were tasteless. No corn or... More

I live close to this restaurant and any chance i have to get a good meal from a restaurant, I go here. It is just a perfect place to eat. The staff are outstanding and they enjoy working here. The menu has food that is never bad and there is a very good assortment of beers and wine if you... More
