This used to be the old jailhouse in Orleans. Neat ambiance. Good food. Would recommend, and would definitely go back.

“Jailhouse going downhill”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 13, 2014

The new management has done a great job of renovating the restaurant. However, the menu's prices have jumped up and the portions seem to have shrunk.
The old menu had many more choices and for much better prices. Maybe the summer menu will be better???

“We Won't Be Back”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 8, 2014

Our party of six had a late afternoon Thanksgiving dinner here. We were seated in a room that had very little ambience. The room adjacent to it has stone walls and looks more charming.

The good part of our dinner was our waiter and the service. Unfortunately, it stopped there.

The turkey dinners were terrible. They appeared and tasted as if they had been made a day or two earlier and then reheated. The food tasted like it had been heated in the microwave and it was heaped on the plate very unattractively. Perhaps they thought quantity would make up for quality. It was pricey, especially given the quality.

Also, the restaurant needed to be cleaned more thoroughly.

Such a shame for a historic building ... but we really can't recommend it.

“Late Lunch Disappointment”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2014

Stopped by on weekend afternoon and had to ask if still serving food. Only one table occupied. Seated and had to wait for service and both of us found our lunch microwaved rubbery and tasteless

“Old Jailhouse Tavern looks great under new management!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2014

Just had a fantastic late lunch @ the Jailhouse. Sat @ the bar to watch the Olympics - awesome new tv's. Bartender was very attentive, sorry I didn't get his name. Ordered a Caesar salad w/steak tips - delicious! Love the new stonework behind the bar.
