“Very good food long long wait”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

Outstanding food, clean, friendly, long wait on weekends.
We had the Blueberry French toast, Goat Omelet and the open face.
French toast was almost 3 inches thick, full of blueberry flavor and almost a bread pudding texture. The open face was fantastic. The biscuits were good covered with scrambled eggs Full of sausage then the whole thing is covered with a chipotle flavored hollandaise style sauce that was fantastic. It has a kick and a little heat so be prepared. All dishes would satisfy a hungry teenage boy or is definitely enough to split with two light eaters, three if they eat like my sister.

“Amazing brunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 26, 2014

The French toast I had was more like a bread pudding topped with a blueberry compote and a side of fresh strawberries. It's clear that the chef takes great pride in creating all the dishes served here. The scrapple is a house specialty that can't be missed. The service was excellent, our waitress knew the menu well, they were friendly, excellent work from all departments.

“Loved it!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 23, 2014

So charming and delicious food! Service was great and a welcoming atmosphere. Would highly recommend! The petite filet and Chilean sea bass were delish and you must get the dark chocolate cheesecake. Wine pairings were very helpful and right in!

“Unique, Tasty Food and Great Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 21, 2014

I have always wanted to try this restaurant at the Camp but kept forgetting to do it. Finally, we decided to have breakfast at Old Vine and confirmed that this is a wonderful restaurant. It was hard to decide what to try first with such an eclectic menu so we ordered that they recommended and shared. We had the reuben omelette, the french toast, the biscuits and gravy and the fruit crepe. All of it was delicious including the latte.
