This was our 1st time visiting this restaurant, and i think we'll go again. The prices were decent, the food was good, and the alcoholic beverages were reasonably priced. It's also a unique place to eat with history behind it....this restaurant actually WAS an old jailhouse...which makes it a unique place to visit. Definitely worth a trip.

Great place, chicken pot pie and onion soup was awesome. The service was quick and at 5:45 there was no wait for a table.

We had a group of 10 here for a Saturday evening dinner. They did a great job with the kids. Kathy is a remarkable waitress with a tremendous personality. You must try the chicken parm. Full menue for all ages.

Been there for both lunch and dinner. Menu is great. Something for everyone. Nice ambiance. Sort of like a country club in style but without pretense. Great bar.

Our first trip to old jailhouse tavern was 13years ago. It appears that little has been done in terms of upkeep since then. The menu has changed and is now limited. The food was just ok. The server was great but we were early for dinner at 4:30 with few other guests in the restaurant at the time. The poor rating comes in the form of an overly tired establishment that is in need of basic up keep. Your shoes stuck to the floors. The green carpet in the atrium is almost black with dirt. Do they not know what a steam cleaner is? The walls have water stains with chipped paint.
If the common areas are left to this level of direpair, what is it like in the kitchen?
If the owners are looking to bilk every penny out of operations just close up. If not clean the place and splerge on some paint and general repair.
