Want a good meal and be around great people? Go to the Eagle House! Tim and Kevin at the bar make you feel like you are family. All the staff are wonderful! The food is always good. The only disappointment is when you can't get a table for two hours. Good for the Eagle House. My favorite spot to take... More

Having read several reviews on TA noting how delicious it was, I googled "Welsh Rarebit". I noted that it came from Welsh Rabbit and was expecting some actual rabbit in the dish along with the Vermont Cheddar and beer. On the bartender's recommendation, I added the bacon for $2. Who doesn't love bacon with cheese and beer, right? When the... More

Hi there! so glad you you've enjoyed your visits... and bacon in the welsh rarebit, so good! Generations ago, my grandparents used to offer a dish called Buck Rarebit with a poached egg over top.. The dish has many folk lore tales on how it went from rabbit to rarebit, worth the google and read, thank you for sharing your... More

Had a great experience working with Trisha as we planned a baby shower from out of town. Always emailed promptly and sent photos when we needed additional information. Pricing was fair. Food was good. Staff helpful.

We stopped in base on Trip Advisor and it was not anything special. The atmosphere is cool,it's an old house so it has that catacomb feel to it. It has a pretty groovy bar and it was very busy when we arrived. We didn't make reservations but they sat us right away. We were seated in a tiny little booth... More

We usually try to go to local restaurants on some holidays. Today, Thanksgiving, was one of those occasions. Our meal was very good. All entrees were prepared to our liking. We were not thrilled with our booth seating. We felt like we were sitting at the kids' table. We had to struggle to reach our food. Service was very slow... More
