“Excellent local food with great service”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

The food was very good and copious.

There was nothing our waitress wouldn't do to entice us and keep plying us with food.

My host and I waddled out of there very satisfied.

“Sunday brunch a must”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

The grain house has the old colonial feel to it and the food is what you'd expect at this type of restaurant. good burgers and soups for lunch, prime rib and chicken for dinner. Service is very good, has a cozy bar in grille room with fireplace for those cold nights. Sunday Brunch is extensive and the quality of food is great, it will not disappoint.

The waitress was great and took her time reading the menu as they do not have large Print or Braille menu's available. The food was so fresh and delicious I still talk about it. All I can say is the restaurant was great & the food was superb.

“Convenient to Olde Mill Inn and a good choice for dinner”
Reviewed July 17, 2013

The important factor is the food, and the entrée salads and soup of the day were excellent. Our server was professional and friendly; the hostess merely efficient. I don't think she knows (or cares) that the host/hostess position sets the tone.
