Beautiful ambiance in a historic setting. You have to try the Jerusha Peach Mold! Portions are generous and they have Sunday dinner specials. Staff is pleasant and accommodating. Grounds are well-kept. Like going back in time when you visit.
Cute gift shop and you can get baked goods and candy for the little ones!
I will agree with other posters that sometimes the food doesn't seem as fresh and sometimes it is not served hot enough.
I will be honest and say that they definitely have their off days and it's nothing to do with how busy they are; I've been there when it's empty and when it's filled to capacity. They used to give you cheese and crackers and relish spread but no longer.
Also, they have a lot of small, private rooms for dining. I booked my son's Christening in 2010 and 12 of us had to sit in the main dining room. That would have been fine, only I kept checking months ahead to see the availability and was told to keep checking back. Then the first day I got the green light to book the Christening, I was told I had "called too late" to book one of the small rooms. That also would have been fine, but we passed the smaller rooms on the way to sit in the dining room. They were filled with other groups of diners, similar in size to our party and some even smaller...with empty tables in the small rooms not being filled.
Another time I tried to book online and mentioned we had 3 adults and 2 kids and needed a high chair. I had to go back and forth several times over the phone with multiple call backs to find a time for them to accommodate a "party of our size." Seriously?
For me, none of these are deal breakers. We will return for special moments/events and we always tip well and are pleased with the service. But some of the above can be a bit annoying...just an FYI!
