Our family has come several times, be it for coffee, desserts, breakfast or even for a show with some appetizers. Atmosphere is cozy and comfortable with the decorations being just enough but not too much to take away from the incredible building and architecture. Whether...More

Fantastic food and service! I highly recommend their crab cakes and Reuben sandwich! The restaurant has a very rustic charm. It could use more booths. The bar area is separate. The drinks are very good.

We've been here three or four times now -- it's a 40-minute drive -- and each time we say the same thing: "Y'know, it's a 40-minute drive, and really, really worth it." I had a salad with Ahi tuna; excellent. I could kind of hide...More

I had a lovely lunch this week. My favorite is the Strawberry Salmon Salad. Grilled salmon atop greens and sliced strawberries with a citrus vinaigrette. I thought that was one of the only things I could eat as a gluten free diner, but they have...More

Friendly atmosphere. Hard-working owners (Bob & wife) are always there! Always good food for a decent budget. The beer list is more interesting than the wine list. Lively bar scene. And it is open much later than any other places in this sleepy village. Keep...More
