It didn't start well and just went downhill. First, it was like pulling teeth to get the hostess to even look at us and try to get a table for 6 people. Once we were finally seated we had no silverware and it took another 10 minutes for someone to come to our table. She brought us our drinks but... More

Was decent but somewhat overpriced with slow spotty service. If you are looking for someplace for a leisurely lunch with some quiet this will do but nothing great.

We went there for dinner and our table was close to fireplace which gave some warmth on a cool night. The salad was very good, but the main entree was blacken sea bass and it was excellent. Nice wine selection, but like many restaurants a bit on the pricey side. The desserts were very good and reasonably priced. The wait... More

We recently ate lunch here and were impressed by the service, the variety of menu items and the food, which was very good with large portions. Being the off season for tourists, we had no problems with parking or being seated. All of our lunches were very well prepared and presented. And, the restaurant atmosphere is great.

We stopped in after our trip to Mt Vernon and had a nice, late lunch. Enjoyed the cornbread appetizer and chicken pot pie - hubby had the shrimp and grits. Both were good and something a little different in a nice setting. Would definitely recommend!

Sometimes we go out and wish I hadn't ... Not here. This place was instantly a great part of our overall trip. We were instantly received with welcome from the staff and the other patrons, as we arrived with my mother in a wheelchair, entering the disabled ramp entrance and making our way to the hostess and to our table....
