Four of us traveled to Portsmouth for dinner Saturday evening, purpose of which was to enjoy a great meal and celebrate my birthday. As always, we have never had an "average" meal at this establishment...only exceptionally prepared food from an extremely interesting menu. We love this place for its eccentricities of decor, its ability to be classy without being pretentious,... More

My wife and myself had been wanting to try this restaurant. We purchased a groupon and made our reservation for a Thursday night 6PM seating. I used to visit the building in my youth years when it was a former barbershop. You enter into a small bar area and proceed to the dining section. Here we were happily welcomed and... More

We have been talking about going here for several years and have called a few times but always too late for reservations when we wanted them. So, for our 35th anniversary, I made sure that we called early. We were almost giddy when we walked in as the décor and ambiance reminded us of early Bobbywood and the Dumbwaiter...yeah, we're...

This was our second trip to this restaurant. Even more charming this time. Busy but friendly waiter. Food was fresh and interesting. 4 persons in our group…all enjoyed the dinners but one person was not happy with his salmon which had bones in it. Otherwise, everything from the wine list, cheese tray, salad and entrees to the desserts worth the... More

The pimento cheese was extra good this night! Don't know why. It it was yummy. And the sea salted goat cheese! And the crackers..... And the bread...... Shall I go... More

You will not be disappointed for finding this place. Chef Syd prepares the most delicious fresh food that has ever crossed your lips. Farm fresh veggies, homemade bread and cheeses, plus his own ham and sausage. Mississppi inspired but a changing menu with mouth watering dishes including vegetarian. He also has bourbon made by his cousin in Richmond that is... More

I had heard about this place from friends and had wanted to go for awhile. my wife and I went finally and the quality and variety on the menu was great. Sidney Meers, the owner/chef has done it again. Nice place for a quiet night out with a date or small groups as it is a little small.

Food was delicious, although overpriced then, toward the end of our meal, something moving on the wall beside me caught my eye... Yep... A cockroach... No, not a water bug... I've lived here my whole life and know the difference... Then a baby one crawled right across the table! My husband and I will never go back. EVER. Not even... More

Yeah, Stove, the restaurant! Very different - the menu was different, offering a cheese plate of 3 out of 12 choices - you pick the ones you want. Came with house relish, house made crackers, and slices of a spicy ham (small & spicy). This restaurant was small, and I only saw one child there -- the menu is not... More
