You feel like you've been somewhere when you go here. The tables are nicely done with tableclothes and fresh flowers. Their eggs Benedict has fried green tomatoes. It adds a nice crunch and some acid to cut the richness of this dish.

Excellent service, food and reasonable prices. Dining rooms remind me of old taverns that would have served travelers in the early to mid 19th century. Must try the Hot Slaw. Fish sandwich is great and the Kentucky Brown is a real treat

Questions like this should go directly to the restaurant. Trip Advisor reviewers would not know the current details. Bit whatever they offer will be good.
