Was a very classy place to eat. Sorry to see it closed. We had business colleagues that would stay there and would meet up at the bar nightly. It was in historic homes in downtown Leesville.

Super good. This is a very old and romantic building with some of the best food around. They also have an amazing old hotel that you can stay at and a separate bar!

Everything about this place is great. Especially the atmosphere. I've done both brunch and dinner. All the food is super yummy and amazing.

Food was mediocre for what was advertised as coming from a "chef." Steak overcooked. But the quaint atmosphere was nice and the staff was excellent. I believe this restaurant has since closed its doors.

I love their menu. This is the first place we went to when we got to Leesville! How unfortunate that they had to shut down their business though. Hope they will open back up soon~

Stopped in with a larger party of work colleagues. The atmosphere was cozy and the bar seemed well appointed. We ordered food and several rounds of drinks. The bartender was unfamiliar with many common drinks, such as an old fashioned, and the bar was out...More

Excellent food, good wine list, beautiful location and great service. Good for couples and families but maybe not ideal for young children.
