Having dined here in the Friday night before each of the past four years of the Living History Farms race the charm of the restaurant has worn off. The staff was generally fun but the waitress couldn't smile if I paid her- which I did of course. The steak was cooked wrong twice and didn't want to wait for a third. The biggest bummer though is that the pasta bar was taken away because of apparent lack of interest. Each of the past three years it has been very popular and tasty. This year I think the restaurant was just lazy and wanted to get through the night. I am likely to test out other options next year. The charm isn't there any longer.
