“BEAR IN MIND”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 13, 2013

I ate at this restaurant 12 years ago waited a long time for our drinks and food. I was visiting the Woodstock area we decided to give them another chance. It went well up to the dinner part we waited again to long for our food, we ordered pan seared salmon everyone else was getting there food. They said on the menu the salmon was from New Zealand it seemed that they want fishing across the country. The food is good but they should have better service People don't always order the steak.

“a little on the over-rated side.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2013

the restaurant was extremely busy - the food was excellent; the service; not so amazing... The vies of a stream were beautiful and the window wall provided excellent views and ambiance.

“Splendiferous food and ambience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2013

Quality farm to table foods. Full-of-good-flavor dishes without unneeded exotic ingredients. Sitting on a deck over a river. House-made goat cheese ravioli. wow. Baby arugula salad with grilled figs. Yes.

“Very accommodating”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

The hostess arranged for a table on a crowded Friday night as we walked in without a reservation. I loved my Salmon dish however, the lobster bolognese special was a bit bland. This charming unique local hang out is still worth a visit.

“Streamside Charm and Delicious Food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

I went in for a quiet dinner, and settled on a Caesar salad with shrimp. The food was prepared very nicely. The bar is full of locals and tourists and there is a nice lively atmosphere. Looking out the floor to ceiling windows at the stream and woods added exponentially to the whole meal. I do think that for the price the salad was a bit on the small side, and I did wish there was just a little more to it. But it is really overall a great place on vacation for a splurge.
