This was a tasty restaurant that also offered local history in an interesting, quaint setting. My crab was tasty and my husband's veal was great. Be sure to see the upstairs slave hiding place.

This is the second time as an adult I've come here. Last time was 2012. The French Onion Soup was magnificent yet again. The filet mignon was perfectly seasoned and cooked. The only thing I was a little taken aback was the manager asking the...More
