“CLOSED SUNDAY”
Reviewed July 3, 2013

Would have been nice to know beforehand. Might have planned things differently. Probably my own fault for assuming a restaurant would be open for Sunday lunch or brunch. Guess they didn't need our business.

“Good food, terrible service”
Reviewed June 22, 2013

This was touted as the nicest restaurant in Hannibal, and indeed the food was very good and very plentiful. The service was really bad, and hard to understand. The host did not stay by the door; we and other arrivals just waited hopefully in the doorway and waitresses assured each arrival that the host would seat us shortly. He rarely cruised thru, and mostly the waitresses ended up seating people after a bit. Our waitress was unwelcoming and inattentive. We had multiple courses, and she never removed a dish or a drink when finished. We finally started stacking them up ourselves. Other tables were left with dirty dishes for 20-40 minutes after diners left, while waitresses and busboy and host seemed to be playing a game to see who would clean up first. Answer: no one! A few bites before we finished our meal, our waitress came by and slapped down our bill, with no offer of coffee or dessert or after dinner drinks, which were heavily featured on the menu. It was about 8:30 pm on a Saturday night, other diners were still eating, no one was waiting for a table, and we had been pleasant and made no demands on her. No idea why she was so unfriendly, and she and the other staff were so unwilling to clean up. Dinner was good, plentiful, fairly cheap, but wouldn't go back; ugly service.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

B and B. Stayed in the Jaded Jewel room. Not a terribly clean or updated place but fun for the historical aspect of this being a former bordello.
The breakfast was less than stellar.

“relaxed dining”
Reviewed June 19, 2013

Dinner was a relaxed experience, with good service. Dinner menu allowed varied choices. Pasta chicken with salad and bread were delicious, attractively served. Shrimp appetizer available with dinner.

“GO FOR THE EARLY BIRD SPECIAL AT DINNER”
Reviewed May 30, 2013

We had a great waitress! I love it when they are honest and told us that the lemonade was made from powder! Food is great at a value that includes homemade bread, prawn cocktail, soup or salad and a list of entrees all for 12.00!!
