“Excellent experience and food”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

My wife and I had our 25th wedding anniversary meal at The Library. Being off season and a Tuesday night, there were only three couples there. We sat by the fireplace and the atmosphere was fantastic. It really feels relaxing and cozy. The food was excellent. We started with Caesar salads prepared table side. I'm not much on Caesar but even I thought it was tasty. My wife had lobster which was perfectly prepared and tasty. I had the Steak Diane which was also prepared table side. It was also excellent. We had intentions of having a table side prepared dessert but we were both stuffed by the time we finished our entrées. Mixed drinks from the were good as well. We will definitely be back.

“Excellent choice for special occasion”
Reviewed January 3, 2014

We enjoyed New Year's Eve dinner at The Library. Friendly staff, attentive service, exceptional food quality, great craft beer menu! A little pricey but this is a unique and romantic dining experience. The feta and sun dried tomato app was more than enough for two. We had the filet and strip, both topped with mushrooms & blue cheese. The strip was "average" but every other part of the dinner and service was well above expectation.

“Fabulous, entertaining dinner”
Reviewed November 20, 2013

This was my first time eating at The Library and I was not disappointed. My filet mignon was prepared almost to perfection and was one of the best of many that I have eaten. The wait staff did a fabulous job and the general manager assisted with the service since we were in a large group. He kept us in stitches all evening and it even felt like a "roast" at times as he lampooned us between courses. This is not what I would generally want if I were dining alone with my wife or even in a party of four, but since we were part of a large group, he really made the meal an entertaining event.
