“Kitchy. Nice atmosphere.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

Very good food. Painters Hall is one of those "hidden gems" that every downtown seems to have.
They often present specials for holidays like a couples Valentines dinner, or the Barrielicious event. All the meals are prepared just for you.

“Very friendly service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2014

Best service in town.
Classic cuisine, not many choices but all great.
Wine list a little weak for the quality of the food

“Intimate Dining Experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 4, 2014

I love that this is an independent restaurant ...not cookie cutter atmosphere as typically found in Franchises....
It's intimate and unlikely location make for a refreshing change...
Five star .... and I'm not easy to please....
