I was looking for something different in Cooperstown to have dinner. In the past I tended to go to the same places, which I have reviewed in the past. So after reading many different reviews I gave this place a try. First, Kate, my server...More

We had a party of eleven and came around 2:00 on a Thursday afternoon. The blonde hostess was incredibly rude and said we’d have to wait at least an hour. We asked if it would be quicker if we split up the party into smaller...More

We stopped here because we were staying at a place next store. Katie our waitress suggested the ribs to my husband and he loved them. The French Onion Soup was delicious, only complaint was that it could have been a little hotter but the taste...More

The food was fair. The servers were friendly. The restaurant is close to the museum (cross at the crosswalk and walk a block down the hill). I had the shrimp wrap. It was just ok. I also ordered sweet potato waffle fries as my side...More
