Really nice.

above average food and presentation rivaling some high end restaurants in Dallas area. Waitress was very social. Atmosphere was quite. Should have asked for a window table. Beer menu was limited (I prefer craft) but wine selection was good.

One of the top quality restaurants in the area that distinguishes itself with an intimate dining experience. Customers are casual or business or on a romantic date and it is comfortable for everyone. The wait staff are excellent.

Excellent menu with great food. Seafood to steaks are all great. Service is flawless. Wine list has adequate listings for the menu with a reasonable price.

We celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here a few weeks ago. It was recommended by the B & B we are staying at. So glad that we were sent here. Quaint little farm house in the country. The inside makes you feel like you are visitng your Grandmother's home, but the food is not your Grandmothers. It is gourmet style food... More

I enjoyed the unconventional layout and atmosphere in this place. It is conservative and yet strangely fancy. I might bring family and guests to such a place but with a few concerns. Any vegetarian guest would be limited to ordering side dishes or drinks. I don't mind a meat and potatoes meal myself, but I think I'm too picky to... More

I have mixed feelings about The Library. Was a little worried when we first walked in and the bar was directly in the front. Had to walk through the smoke to get to the tables. However, I was pleasantly surprised by the rest of the place. The service was very nice, and the ambiance was charming. The menu is fairly... More

You can always count on the steaks to be very good and the flavor is as good as Dallas. Also, their desserts are wonderful.

This is one of those places you want to be better than it is. Its fun to visit this converted house, and the menu is pretty good. The only thing is most of the meats are just really salty. I think their go to seasoning is loaded with sodium! They have not had a menu change in years so I... More
