They are one of the few restaurants in TC that have a special place on their menu for vegetarians. We had an excellent salmon with morels and asparagus and rice. It was delicious, and they made one of the servings without pancetta for my non meat eating companion. We ordered salad starters mini sized chosen from their extensive salad menu and only up charged by five dollars. Salads were very good. This is a reasonably priced good food restaurant with friendly service and a nice vibe. Thursday night they have music starting at eight, but we did not stay. The bar seemed like fun, and everyone was drinking martins.

This is our favorite place for a special meal. Never disappointed. Small little place with big flavor! Have a Martini while you are there, they rock!

This place was just all around terrible. The food was overpriced, small portions and tasted terrible. Both mine and my husbands meal was not the slightest bit enjoyable. Do not waste your time or money here!

I asked our B&B host for a restaurant with healthy food and that was reasonable. We had a hard time finding Poppycocks as it was a small restuarant, but good things come in small packages. The choices of salads are awesome. I tried the greek and quinoa salad which was very tasty. Even the small salad was quite large. Service was very good. My wife didn't like one of the soups so they gave her a different soup without even hestiating.

Had seen reviews on tripadvisor and on eof the ladies with us raved about it so we had to check it our for ourselves!! Great music, good service, tomato soup was yummy and we all devoured the Pita Appetizer - the pitas were amazing as was the Jarlsberg cheese! A few of us tried the 4 cheese - I think it was at least 4 cheese grilled cheese - YUM and then we also tried the Orchard Melt - apples, apple butter and brie! The desserts looked heavenly but none of us had room!!
