Lunch in this old Victorian hotel and restaurant was wonderful. Great food, service (waitress only) and charming character inside of an old Victorian home. CONS: A little pricey, and rude receptionist/bartender gave me the stern once-over because I was dressed in jeans. Had the nerve to lie to me that the dining room was full and suggested that I eat...

This restaurant offers the perfect atmosphere for those who enjoy Traditional decor in Historic settings; professional waitstaff and quiet surroundings. Classical music plays softly in the background. Be prepared to climb up some stairs to get to the dining rooms, though. They used to offer a wonderful Sunday Brunch buffet, which we greatly miss. However, they still put on a... More

Had lunch on Friday (party of 5). Not crowded. Good service. Very pleasant atmosphere in an older building with lots of character. Parking available behind the building. My wife and I enjoyed the crab cakes.

I have eaten here many times for lunch and dinner as I live in Worthington and it is very easy to get to. There is plenty of parking. The restaurant is housed in a 200 year old inn and period decorated. I have never had a bad meal here. The Executive Chef Thomas Smith knows what he is doing and... More

Went for Sunday brunch, waited 15 minutes for waitress to show up. Place was empty. Still took a half hour for food. The waitress that served was not friendly and never smiled. Had poor hygiene, hands were dirty when serving food, had terrible odor. Food portions were small, very overpriced. This was our first time there but will not return.

Complete waste! Stopped in to check out this highly rated Restuarant for a place to hold my company Christmas party because of the local connection.

Went for brunch. Entered the front door where we were directed to follow the greeter through three rooms to the hostess stand at the bar. She led us back through the same three rooms and seated us. The menu boasts "local, fresh, natural" but the mashed potatoes were instant, reconstituted flakes. The instant potatoes greatly diminished the otherwise good roasted... More
