All the meals we ordered we were like,... More

If you're looking for some GREAT food and fantastic atmosphere, then this is the place for you. Never had such tender Short Ribs in my life. Presentation of food was awesome. And the desserts, OMG! Service was outstanding. You should try it out. Very classy place for a special evening.

Delicious 4 course meal and I recommend the macadamia encrusted salmon! I loved the log home type decor that created a perfect atmosphere for a special evening!

The food was unique and uber tasty. I had the Veal Porterhouse and I didn't even need a knife. My wife had the mussels and she loved it.

This is a fantastic place to take that very special person in your life! The food was presented beautifully and it was as delicious as it looked! The service was timed perfectly and with the cozy ambience of this restaurant it made our Valentines dinner the most memorable ever!

This was this restaurant's 1st Friday night since re-opening under new ownership. We were quite impressed. Friendly wait staff. Scallops...large, tender, and delicious. Veal Porterhouse Steak...amazing...tender, thick and succulent. Great decor/atmosphere as well in a beautiful historic old inn.
