This is a semi-formal restaurant with a menu of high level dishes which are all delicious. It offers exquisite desserts. Service is excellent and the theater upstairs has entertainment geared to the community.

Loved the quaint atmosphere. Superb meal and fantastic service. My husband had the crab cakes and loved them. I had the filet and it was one of the best steaks I've ever had. Pair it with a show upstairs at the Cumming Playhouse and you have a great evening! Most shows begin at 8:00 and we were advised to make... More
