My husband and I and another couple enjoyed a lovely dinner during the special occasion "Victorian Candlelight Dinner" service. We enjoyed the setting....the soft lighting and the lovely Christmas tree. There was a young man playing piano that just added to the festive atmosphere. We told our server that we were on a time schedule, so they did their best... More

My husband and I went here for a celebratory dinner on our babymoon and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. The seafood chowder and steaks (both filet and ribeye!) were delicious. We also had the apple cobbler and loved it. Great service and atmosphere and lots of fun things to look at! A fun little getaway!

As I came around the bend the almost ancient-looking Inn sat there, nestled by the road. My immediate thought was that it was aptly named since anyplace that looked this timely must be full of stories. Walking... More

Would have been four stars if not for the odd service. Our Asian waitress obviously hasn't heard that the best service is unobtrusive yet efficient. She interrupted dinner conversation several times, one of which was to tell us that she was freaking out inside because my husband reminded her if her ex down to his clothing. She went on and...

We were staying in Nashville when we read about the restaurant on trip advisor and visitors center in Nashville confirmed it was a great place for breakfast, lunch, or dinner and is a popular destination for visitors from Indianapolis and other cities. Reservations are required. The facade... More
