great food

This is my second time back and it didn't disappoint. I was looking forward to the hot Reuben dip and it was just like I remembered it. Fabulous. I got the Reuben Grill sandwich and wasn't sorry I did. mmmm!

If I were rating this restaurant merely for food quality, I would have to say average. But the atmosphere elevates things considerably... wonderful old church interior, complete with stained glass windows and choir loft! The staff was very friendly and accommodating. It was fun just being there. My husband ordered shepherd's pie, and enjoyed it very much. I had a... More

Tired of boring food chains or pretentious hipster venues? This is the place for you! This is a former church that has been converted into a restaurant. It sounds hokey, but it makes for a really fun atmosphere. Its different, fun, and the food is delicious. The menu is huge so there was something for my picky kids and my... More

Stopped in for lunch on a Sunday afternoon after going to the movies. What a unique place! The restaurant is in an old church which lends loads of character. There's a large bar area in the center of the restaurant with what looks like plenty of tables both downstairs and upstairs. I sat at the bar which wasn't too busy... More

This restaurant is one of my top favorites! First off the atmosphere is great! I love how it was a former Catholic Church converted into a restaurant, thus making the names of some of the drinks quite comical. I would recommend the holy communion for a drink choice! For food, the Ruben sandwich is always tasty! The restaurant even offers... More

Their is something for everyone on the menu, the selection is impressive. They have an outdoor patio, so you can enjoy your meal outside when... More

Wow! These owners really hit the ball out of the park with this unique venue. Not only is this a converted church with stain glass windows, 100 year old wood doors, and a handsome bar in the center, but the traditional Shephards Pie was delicious, the clam/seafood chowda and the French Dip were 10's! All this while we enjoyed a... More

We went here based off of our hotel's recommendation -- we are so glad we did! The town surrounding it looks a bit abandoned, but this place was busy. We sat at the bar and ordered a rib appetizer with a few beers (plenty on tap!) They only had two TVs setup on the far wall, though, so don't expect... More

The Holy Grail is in an Old Church, but there is an outside patio area between another old building (the old rectory perhaps?) that is a lot of fun. There is a cobblestone pathway, and sitting between the two buildings makes it seem like you're in Walt Disney World! The food was awesome as well, and so was the service.... More
