“Better than expected - good quality food / diverse menu”
Reviewed February 19, 2014

Appetizers were all very tasty & different.

Entrees were also good - they try too hard to add "different" spices to their menu items - some work & some don't.

Would definitely go back

“Disappointing”
Reviewed January 12, 2014 via mobile

Chicken with pasta and olives without taste ABD without olives. Chef forgot them. Risotto overcook and bland. Salads were fine as was the meatloaf but the side of masked potatoes was very cold. Better for lunch

“Feast of Seven Fish - A new family tradition!”
Reviewed December 24, 2013

My wife and I were pretty regular at Donna's in Columbia and disappointed when it closed. Since then, we have only had a few visits to the Cross Keys location to enjoy our familiar haunt. Last week I received an invite to a special Christmas Eve meal, a traditional Italian-American "Feast of the Seven Fish" dinner. Since my foodie daughter was visiting from Michigan this week, I sent her the menu and asked if she'd be game to go and her reaction was just a tad over the top. Rural Michigan doesn't have many "Feast of the Seven Fish" opportunities so I made a reservation for the four of us (my son rounded out the group when he joined us at the last minute). The meal exceeded all expectations (which were high to begin); from the Bacala Crostini starter through each of the four courses, the first course of Grilled Sardine, the second course of Scallop wrapped in Limoncello cured Salmon, the third course of Stuffed Calamari, the fourth and final course of Red Snapper over house made lobster ravioli; each were a culinary delight to themselves, perfectly prepared and perfectly seasoned. Thanks - my family has a new Christmas tradition to look forward to and I am already dreaming about next year's menu.

“Great catering”
Reviewed September 25, 2013

Great provision of catering for our family reunion. Excellent food: meat lasagna (out of this world) and eggplant parigniano (very fine). Excellent sides. Very helpful.
