The servers are lovely. The chef is a great cook and also is very personable. The decor is nice and it is a lovely place for a special occasion. I love it. We have gone there many times now

I had a lovely chicken caprese sandwich with curly fries. Waitstaff was friendly and atmosphere was nice. I would definitely return to dine here. Good value for your dollar.

Some friends suggested that we drive down to try this restaurant in Dexter. The decor was nice and we were able to get right in. The food was okay, nothing that would make me go again. I ordered the crab cakes and a house salad, which was not bad but you could tell the crab cakes were not fresh made.... More

Friends had told us about this place so we decided to try lunch. Hubby ordered prime rib sandwich and I had the Italian cheese sandwich. We both opted for a side salad instead of fries. Food was excellent for sbout $21. Service was good. The atmosphere of this place is fantastic. Loved seeing an old building looking so good!

Dexter doesn't have much in the area of fine dining...ok...this is it! Haha. But it's a great restaurant. We've been multiple times and always get great food and very friendly servers. My one, and only complaint, is that service is always slow. Every. Single. Time. Hopefully that will be fixed eventually. But we love the atmosphere so much and the... More

The food is average at best. Not many vegetarian items on the menu and I feel like it is overpriced for what it is. It's very dark in this restaurant and good luck with the service. The best thing I've ever had here is the dessert. The dessert is awesome. The pasta sauces... not so much. They are pretty similar... More

Finding the place is worth the effort. This is a nice and quite place during the weekdays with the weekends being fuller. Not exactly a fine dining place but the pricing and tastes of the foods are above average and the staff seems to enjoy their customers....you will be appreciated!

I had been here once before on a Sunday for the brunch buffet, which should have been a bad enough experience for me to not try again, but I gave the restaurant the benefit-of-the-doubt as brunch buffets are sometimes a strain on otherwise good restaurants. Dinner tonight was a bad experience. First, the offerings are definitely not Mediterranean (continental, perhaps... More
