Charming!

We were a group of three. All of our meals were served in a timely manner, absolutely delicious and the atmosphere is comfortable. Our server was attentive and friendly. Each of us would recommend this charming restaurant to our friends and family.

My husband and I just enjoyed one of the best meals out in a long time. Our server was great, and although they started getting really busy, we were not neglected. More importantly, our meals were perfect. The French Onion soup is hands down, the best I've ever enjoyed. I was a little unsure if the special tuna entree would... More

The atmosphere was cute, and really cozy, but the food was eh. I got the prime rib special and was severely disappointed. At least a third of it was fat, and it was so bland. I had to load it with salt and pepper to make it taste like anything. The vegetable side was a mix of baby carrots, shredded... More

This is definitely worth a stop when you are in the area. It is a cozy place, great selection of food, reasonably priced and the wait staff was very accommodating. Although it sounds like a steak house, the seafood is just as good. Although their specials sounded great, i just wanted to try something off the menu since this was... More

We arrived without reservations, but were seated promptly anyway. It was a very clean, cozy & relaxing atmosphere. There is a lot to look at because it is decorated so nicely in old world charm. The staff was very efficient, & made sure our glasses were always full. We both enjoyed the fresh, crisp salad, but thought it took a... More

Very friendly staff. Great place for a romantic meal or meal for a family gathering. Great menu selection. I've had everything from their bar menu to their full menu and have never had one bad experience. Favorite things are the filet migon, crab cakes and chicken piccata with crabmeat. When I first visited their restaurant I never expected the inside... More

We were just a little put off by the name, seemed a bit odd to us, but the food and service are excellent. It is sort of a rustic place in a rustic setting but you won't be treated better anywhere. We were traveling through Drums, PA, a little town I had never heard of even though I had lived... More

This was our first visit in several months, again the food and service was excellent. There is a variety of entree's. The bistro menu in the bar is excellent for small portions and quality food. I had the pork schnitzel and my wife had the pumpkin ravioli, which I sampled. Oh what flavor!. Drinks were generous, food hot and delicious,... More

We enjoyed our meal and the friendly staff. The meals were filling and were priced right for the quality and quantity. We visited late on a weeknight so there weren't many other patrons at the time but I could tell many of the others were regulars which is almost always is the best recommendation - that is the case here....

this is our favorite restaurant in our area. You'll find a comfortable atmosphere in an antique atmosphere. The building is old, full of history and the menu is large with all the variety you'd expect in a fine restaurant. There is plenty of parking with easy access. There is even a small cozy bar. We eat there as often as... More
