The bourbon pecan pie, the blackberry bread pudding, the chocolate fudge cake, etc. - they were all amazing. I normally do not like bread pudding, but I really liked it at... More

This has been a place I love to return to - I am from PA so not from the area. The tea is great - had it hot this time - nice with citrus flavor. The Corn relish very tasty with fresh chips. And portabella mushroom sandwich is amazing. Nice hint of Horsh relish - light for those of you... More

Stopped in and enjoyed some coffee and appetizers and was very surprised. Main course was great and my wife loved the store attached so she got to walk away with more than just a good meal. Staff was excellent.

We chose this restaurant for our big night out dinner on our girlfriend getaway weekend. They gave us a large table in a quiet, private area of the place, food was very good and wait staff was helpful and attentive. All of this made it a memorable time together. We all were pleased and would recommend this restaurant if Italian... More

This is a great place to have a very nice meal and browse through the attached craft store. My wife loves coming to the Dove's Nest. The food is good and the merchandise is very creative.

If you can make it past all the unique shopping on the way in (which is highly unlikely), then you'll really enjoy the restaurant. Great sandwiches and soups, and the iced tea is always something special.
