Would like to try everything on the menu. Our dinner was superb and the server was very attentive. This is a first class restaurant in a large B&B that's open to the public.

Food and setting are very pleasant. Our experience was marred slightly by what seemed to be an urgency on the proprietor’s part to collect the fee and clear the table. It was an American, ‘eat and move on,’ experience rather than a European, ‘welcome, have...More

Hi Walter, that's good advice to make early reservations for Thanksgiving. We'll have a table ready for you this year - you already know to come hungry. Thanks for the comments!
