Title says it all, our server was fantastic and the chef was quite helpful when it came to our food allergies, however they main courses were just a tad disappointing. Would still come back again for another shot!

Both of us enjoyed our dishes (I had duck). Service was good and very friendly. Only negative was that our table was a bit isolated and next to a service station.

Didn't get to try this restaurant which had been recommended by our innkeeper. However, even if there had been a table I'm not sure we would have stayed. Notice on the door said 'no beach wear' fortunately we were suitably attired. So we walked in at 6.45 and stood about waiting to be greeted ( no obvious reception) a man... More

Was recommended by concierge at Woodstock Inn as a restaurant for a romantic anniversary dinner. Boy was she off base. The decor is very old and tired. The restaurant has no atmosphere. It should have been remodeled years ago. The food is ok. Certainly not worth the $51 price fix. Every meal came with the same two sides. Rice and... More

Everything was really good. Creative menu and food was well prepared. They offer daily menus. Book ahead or you won't get a table!
