We had both dinner and breakfast at Fossett's. The views from Fossett's are amazing (and will be just as beautiful as before once the golf course is finished). The Fossett's staff provide amazing service, and are diligent in checking on you throughout the meal. Kudos to the chef and his staff for the amazing entrees.

I can't find the word to express who classy and yet affordable the meal are. The view is the most gorgeous - reminding me of a dream or a movie. The food id well prepared as it is presented. The staff are well-mannered, sharp, prompt and tailored.

The dining room is elegant and the service is attentive, but not obtrusive. The food was amazing. Appetizers of pasta with pork and frissee salad were good. The entrees blew us away. I had the crab cakes and a side order of roasted beet with bur rata. My husband has the slow cooked beef and collards. The collards were one... More

Visited Fossett's during Restaurant week, which offers a 3 course meal for $36.00, with $1.00 going to the local food bank. The atmosphere was great with excellent food and service. They also had a wine special to go along with dinner offering several wines at $26.00 a bottle, which was a great deal. Our experience there made me want to... More

My boyfriend and I chose to spend New Years Eve at Fossett's because a mutual friend had recently joined the kitchen staff. I knew as soon as we walked up to the building we were going to have a great night. The trees in the front of the building were full of beautiful lights, it just looked so inviting. We... More

My daughter made reservations at Fossett's to celebrate my wife's special birthday. The food, the ambiance and the service were superb. All four of us were impressed with the taste of the food, the presentation of each course and the care of our servers. From the moment we walked into Keswick Hall, we knew we were somewhere special. My wife... More

Sunday we were a party of four and were put in a corner with 4 chairs that were apparently for overflow and not the nice comfortable ones at most tables.... More

We had the Thanksgiving buffet . Upon arrival we waited 10 minutes before the host came to greet us and that was only after numerous requests... More
