“Very bad experience”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 13, 2013

Very bad experience. After paying our bill at the register (with a generous tip), was followed by our server into a close by business and confronted by him claiming I had not paid. It was humiliating and uncalled for. All he needed to do was to check with the person at the register, and he would have known that I paid. Very unprofessional service!

“Yummy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 3, 2013 via mobile

Had the homemade veggie burger which was very tasty, and also gluten-free. Husband had The Veg sandwich which he enjoyed. Great fresh food and many choices for vegetarians. Got to sit ouside which was nice. Loved all the vegetables/herbs and flowers they have planted.

“Thoughtful menu with local ingredients-yummy desserts”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 22, 2013

Don't be in a hurry when you eat here and reservations are a MUST. This dining experience is worth the drive! Plan on spending a couple of hours eating through their menu--which we successfully did and it was awesome! From frog legs to blueberry crumble pie, it was truly an amazing taste adventure. I applaud the commitment to staying with local growers to supply the ingredients for all of their beautiful food. It was cooked to perfection and lovingly served by friendly staff.

“You don't want to miss this stop.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2013

This is a local gem. Not the kind of place to drive a distance to get to, but if you are within 15 minutes or so it seems to be a worthwhile place to go. We definitely plan on going back and most likely within a few weeks. The staff are very friendly, the food is good, the menu is just big enough and the prices are reasonable. Choosing to sit outside by the infrequently used railroad tracks is a neat feature. We were hoping a [not too long] freight train would go by. Maybe next time?!

“Fresh Fresh Fresh!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 5, 2013

We recently ate brunch at this wonderful restaurant and it was delicious! They use fresh, local ingredients from within a 20 mile radius and it shows in the quality of the food. Located in an old train station the atmosphere was lively and fun! Return visits are on our menu!
