Everything on the menu is good. The locale is in Jackson Square a historical shopping center whose history can be traced back to the Manhattan project. Great desserts! Great locale to take clients for lunch. Fries are the bomb.

Dean's vegetables and desserts are well prepared; portions are generous. And service has been friendly and efficient every time I've been there. I'm not a meat eater so can't speak to their meats. My sister has enjoyed their fish and turkey.

This is a locally owned restaurant with ok food. Decent selection but meat is typically overcooked. Sometimes the wait can be more than 30 minutes.

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
