Sat at the bar....high tops available, too. Wonderful conversation with barkeep. Casual and cozy. Food - Clam Chowder was better than excellent! Salmon wrap - no complaints. Wonderful decor. Will stop again, for sure! Keep in mind that the city does monitor the parking meters out front! Make sure you bring a few quarters!

The restaurant has a cabin feel to it (the patio is also great in the summertime). The food is well prepared - nothing particularly memorable - and satisfying. The wine list is very reasonably priced. We had a Willamette Valley Vineyard's pinot noir that was a bargain. The service was ok. She seemed inexperienced. Parking is difficult, but the restaurant...

My wife and I frequently dine here over the summer months, enjoying the alfresco atmosphere and reliably good food. So we opted for an early New Years eve meal in the dining room. The entire experience exceeded our expectations and was excellent. The quite and quaint atmosphere was perfect, yet welcome for families. So it is settled - we will... More

Always very good and reliable; we've never been disappointed. Three of us ate here for lunch and even though the daily specials looked enticing, we had the Southwestern Chicken salad and were very pleased. This restaurant is a "keeper."

Weather dining inside in the winter or outside in the summer this is a go to place. Of course the patio outside is the best!! Good service and good food. If inside request a table near the fireplace. Just a comfortable dinner or lunch destination. Good bar area with good bartenders . Go and relax.

The food was spot on. The server was attentive and knowledgable. Service was great. We enjoyed it so much we decided to return for... More

We drove 2 1/2 hrs to eat here. The menu was very small and very expensive. I thought there would be more choices on the menu. For the price of the meal I expected way more of a serving. They didn't do anything for birthdays which was disappointing. My friend got Elk that was very pricey at nearly $50 we... More

This restaurant serves wonderful meals of elk, lamb, venison, rabbit, quail, wild boar, etc.. The food was excellent and even the "little plate" was almost more food than I could eat. With a variety of beer, wine and a full bar, this was a wonderful find in Chagrin Falls. The location is not far from Chagrin Falls which made for... More
