My wife's steak was perfect as was my halibut. Prices very reasonable. Will go back if we're ever back in town.

We are new to the area, decided to eat out last Sunday since we had visitor. Many restaurants are closed Sunday?! The library opens for dinner at five. We made a reservation but didn't need it. Enough customers but many empty tables. The building is historic and the decor fitting. The duck and liver were very good, the steak ordered... More

I almost squeeled with delight when I was taken here. The ambiance is so perfect. They did a great job restoring what could be and blending the new so it didn't look tacky. The service was very good and the staff were obviously groomed for finer dining. They had a moderate menu but my selections was very mouth watering. I... More

Went for dinner - 32C + night --- very little if any A/C! Actually quite uncomfortable. Reservation for 6:30 - did not receive any food(bread included) until after 7:30! Food was good but items on the menu were not available and waiter did not tell us! This is the third time we have tried this place and will be the... More

Great atmosphere in the century old building, but needs an interior face-lift and better lighting (it was so dark we couldn't see our food). Wide variety of menu options - a little bit of everything, including something for vegetarians and vegans. I highly recommend the Maple Pecan Duck with Sweet Potato Gnocchi. We were there for a wedding anniversary and... More

We ate here last Saturday evening and had a great meal. My wife had a problem with her entree and our server was fantastic and whisked it away with the offer of replacing it with a different entree. When I told our server about the bad experience of the week before at a different restaurant in Midland (revue posted on... More

We're visiting the area from the UK and this restaurant is close to our B&B so we decided to try it - glad we did, the food was fantastic. Lovely mussels on the specials, duck and rack of lamb, all cooked to perfection. Nice laid back atmosphere and good service

I would have given this restaurant an excellent rating were it not for the fact that service was very slow. The food was great, and wait staff very friendly.

We were just going out for a date night and now expecting too much but last night I had one of the best meals I've ever had! We were advised to order some appetizers because the kitchen was a little backed up so we had the coconut shrimp and bruschetta, both were amazing! My main course was the full rack... More
