I ordered the Mac and Cheese and a side of broccoli, as well as a prosecco. Worth the high prices and the bartender was very nice and fun to chat with. Unfortunately, restaurant is closed Monday and Tuesday so didn't get to try other entrees.

Been coming here for the last four summers and love it. Excellent atmosphere, service and food. Be sure to make reservations as it is small and cozy and romantic. One of those places that needs to be on your list.

Small, quaint, a little noisey but great food and service! Sat outside around the fire with a drink before dining and had a lovely chat with people who were staying in the lodges. Reasonably expensive but well worth it.
