“Bad food and terrible service.”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 7, 2012

Attended a retirement party there and was more than disappointed. They ran out of food with two tables of 8 left to feed. The servers simply shrugged and said there was no more of certain dishes. The number of attendees was four less than the reservations as some had to cancel at last minute. Food was bland, hot food was not hot, and after a dozen or so had gone through the line, no one bothered to spruce up the appearance of the serving dishes. Would not hold an event here.

“Good place for group/special occasion meals”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 9, 2012

It is an old elegant estate setting that caters to business meetings. Very private & recently reorganized. Good cuisine and quiet. On the South part of town off of US 11.

“One of the best event sites around”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 3, 2012

There is also a restaurant open to the public if there is not an event. Food is very good, atmosphere and wait staff lovely, in this older home made into a restaurant with outdoor seating when weather is good. Beautiful location.
