Enter to heavy musty odor. Greeter:Sloppy mini, mini skirt,holding tarnished coffee server. Seated in President' Room. Decor uninspiring, with tarnished silver everywhere. Tawdry pub-like feeling. If the food was good, it was overpowered by the mustiness of old room and filthy Oriental Rug.

We've been going to Cedar Knoll for many years through several changes in menu/management, and the current incarnation is pleasant, friendly, and satisfying.

Cedar Knoll has been around for a long, long time. Many have tried to make a go of it, and many have failed. This reiteration deserves support. We were there on a pleasant, sunny weekday afternoon. We sat in a sun room that used the...More
