I was interested to visit this restaurant because of it's historical significance. Built in 1776, it was part of the Underground Railroad. However, the fact that the building is original doesn't forgive the overall appearance. It needs a good cleaning! The rugs on the floor are so beaten down that they appear to be imbedded in the floors...which, by the way, are beautiful, although not taken care of.
In the dining room, most of the chairs are wood but there are a couple of upholstered wing chairs. The fabric was worn, and dirty looking. I wouldn't have wanted to sit in one.
Our waitress was efficient but robot like, reciting in the same way to each table. No personal touches here!
The staff wore period costume, again, very tired looking and all in need of a good wash and some ironing. The salads and entrees were good but the much touted bread basket was mediocre. The prices were high for the appetizers and specials. All in all, it's a place that has potential but I wouldn't highly recommend it.
