Stopped here for lunch and was glad we were NOT in a hurry. All the furnishings and the building were old and funky but the food was good!

Stopped in on a whim. What fun! The decor is a fusion of Victoria drawing room and library/museum in an old gas station. The food was good. Staff was attentive. I'd love to go back in the evening. It looks like a place for good conversation over good food.

If you are in the mood for some exquisite specialty seafood dishes, this is the place. The food was delicious with generous portions. Make sure to order the crostini appetizer and definitely leave room for dessert. Very friendly and a nice cozy small establishment. Well worth the experience.

To start off, this place has a great eclectic cute setting and the food was alright. I don't know what happen that day or if they hired a new waitress/host and cooking crew, but this was one of the longest waits for service (I'm talking about +30 minutes of us just chatting with each other and wondering what's going on),...

Kinda hidden little place. You might miss it behind the trees. It's located at the intersection of Old, Market, and Grove. Small parking lot, but there's street parking or a public lot across the street. I couldn't figure out which door to enter, there are 3 unlabeled doors. Enter through the middle door after going through the iron gates. The... More

Party of 6-all had something different. Brisket, crab cakes, flounder with crab, soup - everything was perfect. Service was quick and excellent, quaint atmosphere and a treasure in this historic town.

Stopping on the way back on 95 to Richmond we came for Sunday lunch. It's a really cute and eclectic room. You feel like your eating in a French antique store--in the good way. Lunch and brunch menu includes sandwiches and entrees most in the $8-11 and are accompanied by one of 6 salads (the Caesar actually rivaled my own!).... More
