We had a lovely meal at this restaurant! Started with an appetizer of mussels in a cream sauce, enough for two to share. My husband had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly. I had the special - redfish with cream crawfish sauce with asparagus spears, roasted beets and mashed turnip. Everything was delicious, the service was wonderful! We finished it... More

Came here 7 years ago and it is still as delicious as it was back then. Our favorite thing is the flash fried oysters. They are worth the trip!!

This is such a fabulous place to dine when in Fredericksburg! It is not on the main street which might make it a turn off to some tourists, but that only enhances its appeal to me. It's just a couple minute drive south of town, though my husband and I have walked from the main street perfectly safely in about... More

My wife and I make our way to Fredericksburg 3-4 times a year and this place is a must for dinner. Their food is incredible, while occasionally their service can be a little slow with water and bread and salads etc but that just allows more time for conversation so I don't mind. I always order the filet medium. It's... More

This was recommended by some friends to get reservations for this place and they were closed when I called. We got to our hotel late in the day, too late for activities in Fredericksburg, so we decided to walk around the Main Street. It was early for dinner but we were hungry, and saw that this place as we walked... More

We had a reservation for 7 pm and were seated promptly. We did not order an appetizer. We ordered hot tea, but the water was not very hot. We were served one slice of warm bread. Eventually the waitress returned to take our order. We ordered the special. Then for almost an hour we sat waiting. Once the waitress asked... More

The snails , French onion soup & redfish were amazing. The filet had a good flavor but was not tender. Great service

It was good just not over the top. We were not overly impressed. What really made our dinner experience was that my husband and I were together and celebrating our 10 year anniversary. For it being a small, quaint, chef run restaurant, we were expecting the quality of food to be a bit better. It was not bad at all... More

The restaurant closes at 10pm. We arrived at 8:38pm. The place was completely empty with only 1 table with a group of 4 people. Every other table was empty! Lady walks up and says do you have a reservation, I looked at my mom smiled and looked confused as there were so many tables available. I told her no. She... More
