We had an excellent meal at the Freight House. Their "summer salad" (house salad) was great. We had a variety of entrees including swordfish; sirloin with shrimp and prime rib with scallops. Impeccable service. Our waiter was Mark. We drank a lot of water, but our water glasses were never empty. Excellent beverage service. The perfect end to a perfect... More

My wife and I have been here so many times with our family, friends, company dinners and just us going out for a date night. We love starting our dinner with the Creamy Artichoke Dip which was so tasty and plentiful for us. Of course we think there should be a salad bar as an option for a meal as... More

We ate at The Freight House and had a very nice dinner. We like the atmosphere there and the staff were very nice. The food came quickly and was quite good. We even got to stay to watch the fireworks!

Enjoyed 10% off construction discount based on past review. Hostess was to busy talking with colleague when we walked in to acknowledge us. A few minutes later she finished her conversation and was able to seat us. Not a great first impression. Luckily the cocktail server and our regular server were very attentive. Salad bar was good, but lackluster in... More
