We came for dinner for a special family gathering. The food was good, and the staff entertaining. You feel like you are actually eating at your Mother-n-laws! Desserts were great, so save room! Place is very small so be sure to make reservations.

We took two friends here in October and they really loved the place. It has been a favorite of ours for years. Charming, filled with antiques, delicious food!

i have been here for lunch, and it was very good. I just had a private party there, down in the basement, and the help was outstanding. and a nice little visit from the Mother herself, made our luncheon very nice

There are some really good salads and soups available here, and if you like eating outside, this is also a great place to go. Inside dining is also charming. Love the story that the place could be haunted...adds a little mystery to your experience, although I've never seen a ghost here. If you are traveling with your furry friend, they always bring a bowl of water outside for you on a hot day for the little guy, which is very much appreciated by a lot of the guests with both two or four legs. The owners are so nice!

We booked the breakfast with Santa that they were advertising. The flyer said the menu was: Waffles, Eggs, Ham, Fruit, Fresh Baked Blueberry muffin along with juice, milk or tea. The price was $15.00 per child and $18.00 per adult. I thought it would be a buffet for that price. I was wrong. It wasn't a buffet and you didn't even get everything listed on the menu. They delivered our food and he kids each got a single waffle, two apple slices, a third of a banana, lunchmeat style ham and a blueberry muffin. The adults got a few chunks of fruit on top of lettuce, a piece of sausage and egg casserole, and a blueberry muffin. The waffles were cold in the middle and were the tiniest frozen waffles you could get. I expected for what they were charging they would be homemade waffles considering this is a restaurant. How hard is it to handmake waffles and keep them in warmer until needed? They could at least sprung for the higher quality frozen ones.
Santa was really good with the kids, the only saving grace for this breakfast. Overall the experience was not a good one and I will not return to the Mother in Law House again or recommend it.
