Bee and Thistle Inn and Lounge

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed August 23, 2003

We wanted to take our son in the navy, whom we were visiting for the weekend to an outstanding restaurant to celebate the christening of his boat. This choice definitely fit the bill! We were attended by two servers. Although the assistant was not quite up to par, the head server was gracious and very knowledgeable about the superb food and excellent wine choices. A caution, if you want to get by cheaply, this is not the place to go. However, if you want to celebrate royally, this beautiful, warm and charming restaurant located in a lovely, old-home-turned-bed-and-breakfast is worth the drive. When we return in nine months, to visit again, we plan to return to this place.
