If you like eggs benedict, this is the place for you. The eggs were perfectly poached and the sauce was delicious. We were there for Sun. brunch and loved it. We ate on the porch, which overlooked the river, and was delightful. The decor on the inside of the restaurant needs to be updated, though. It's rather dark and dingy.

Very good food & service priced reasonably. I enjoyed the stuffed halibut with a rich cream sauce. My husband had the half rack of ribs. Delicious!

The Cellar offers a Tapas menu at 3:00 during the week that is a selection of their regular menu --- in smaller bites. We love the scallops and their seafood cakes! Chef Bob Layman is a master of melding French cuisine with Asian.

We recently held a reception here following my Mom's funeral memorial service. I chose this restaurant based on other Tripadvisor reviews, the location, the menu and a telephone conversation with the owner/chef. This restaurant exceeded my expectations!! I had planned a tapas luncheon for about 35 guests, and the chef stayed within my desired price range while selecting a gorgeous... More

We had the cheese blintz - very tasty & fresh & the seafood crepe - also very good. Nice view of the river from the rear dining area. Street parking was a bit of a problem (we were there the beginning of Dec)

Got off the highway while travelling through based upon TA review--we were not disappointed. Sunday brunch--heavy on the breakfast dishes, light on the lunch choices--but very delicious. Mushroom and smoked gouda crepes and caesar with grilled chicken. Both very fresh, creative. Pleasant service. Reasonable. Would go again.

Waited 10 minutes for waitress to acknowledge we were there. She quickly left without asking if we were ready to order. Finally got our drinks but didn't receive our bread. When the waitress returned to take our order she laughed while apologizing for the wait. When we received our bread we were discussed with the 3 tiny strips. There were... More

I go to the Cellar about once per month and have been doing so for about 3 years. Their Steak is very tender and full of flavor. If you like Lobster I highly recommend the Lobster Thermidor which is Lobster served with melted cheese and their own special delicious sauce. It's an excellent combination of ingredients and my favorite dish.... More
