“A nice addition to the area.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 2, 2012

This is a beautiful restaurant and gift shop. The tables are nicely decorated with linens and table runners. The chairs are elegant and comfortable. I would suggest using cloth napkins instead of paper. The waitress was exceptionally friendly and spent a lot of time telling me about the menu and specials. However, I was told that most of the side dishes were not available during lunch for the larger entrees. She explained that the chef liked to serve all the food fresh and didn't like to waste so these items were typically prepared for dinner. I was perfectly fine with this and I believe she was trying to be accommodating when she said, "if you would like green beans I think there is a CAN back in the kitchen". I passed on the offer for canned vegetables and ordered a hot ham and cheese sandwich with tomato bisque soup. The soup was served hot and had a wonderful flavor. However, the use of DRIED herbs as garnish was disappointing and the soup was served in a small cup without a saucer. The sandwich was average. The bread was heavily buttered and of store bought quality. There was plenty of ham on the sandwich, but the use of American cheese, iceberg lettuce, tomato and mayo was boring and predictable. This was served with a side of pasta salad that was excellent. The service was great and I will definitely go back as I would like to try some other menu items. Hopefully they will invest in some fresh herbs, linen napkins, and get a little more creative with the sandwich toppings. I would cautiously recommend this restaurant to my friends.

“What a jewel!”

A trip to The Greenhouse is sure to please. This business is a certified Weber dealer, with many grills and accessories to choose from. They offer a wide range of items for sale, from Miche bags to Trollbeads. If you're looking for a special gift that's unique, this is the place to go. In addition, they have recently opened a restaurant inside the business--The Bistro. Their chef prepares fresh and delicious lunches 7 days a week. I visited on Saturday, Jan 21 and was treated to tasty potato soup and a great club sandwich. Their menu includes salads, soups, sandwiches and full meals. I have never been disappointed in what I ordered. As an additional feature, they offer gillling classes, fondue classes, sushi classes, plus a host of others. For a small business, they sure pack a punch. Plan to visit them soon - you won't be disappointed. Sign up for their newsletter to catch up on all the latest happenings.
