Service extremely slow and several items ran out on Sunday brunch and had to order "something else". Slow slow slow but food was good except for watermelon in fruit salad was bad.

My fiancé and I stayed here for two nights. Each room was as unique as the hotel. Our room was lovely and so spacious. It was a bit nor in cost but worth it. Walking through the hall you could see other rooms. Each was beautifully decorated and all were unique!

We are so happy to see this establishment under new ownership and improving everything. We had a wonderful dinner on the veranda with white table cloth and fresh flowers. Service was very good. And the food was excellent. We had Rainbow Trout, which was cooked to perfection.

Visited this with local friends for Sunday Brunch last month. Our friends had not been there since it changed hands and although they had heard it wasn't as good as it used to be were prepared try it with us. The ambiance is fine, exactly what I had expected, the service very good, but the food was just average. My... More

Had a lovely brunch out the back patio. Everything was delicious. The blueberry and pecan pancakes were a huge hit! The waiter was really nice and attentive. Have the usual breakfast items on the menu but also crab cakes and shrimp and grits and a few more specialties. Would certainly eat here again!

The omelette was good, but the biscuit was hard. The sausage was overcooked. I wish we could have had breakfast outside as the weather was beautiful. The front porch is their best attribute with comfortable rocking chairs.

The menu options are rounded, the good good but the best part is simply the setting. The historical rooms are tastefully decorated and summon the history of the place. I had the eggs Benedict and it was delicious. Breakfast Plates range $15-20.

What a great restaurant! From the minute you walk in you feel like you are in a friend's home and treated like a special guest. The layout was very comfy. The bar had great drinks, the dining room was simple yet elegant, and the food was superb! We sampled at least four appetizers...all delicious! Salad was delicious and the main... More
