Fine dining with creative flare. Portions are the right size. The popovers are a must. The service was attentive, personal, and relaxed. The atmosphere appears quite stuffy and antique elegant, but once in there see that jeans and a collared polo shirt is acceptable attire.

We were seated by the fireplace which was nice since it was cold outside. I ordered the sirloin steak (without the pepper) which was the best steak I've had in many years. The popover was delicious. The only food I wish the served was a baked potato since, as a Weight Watcher, I'm not really keen on the garlic mashed... More

Very nice menu and great server. The rubin was very good. Tender lean corn beef made an excellent sandwich. However...the French dip was not edible. The beef was cut very thick and had an awful texture. Slippery tasteless and slimy. We didn't say anything when our waitress cleared our table. When she brought our check she told us she took...

I have had dinner in the downstairs tavern twice and the food is great. The chicken riggies are probably the best I have ever had and most recently I orderd a Tuscan Martini pizza that was the best pizza I have ever had. The prices are also very reasonable for this level of quality.

We dined in the Tavern, near the beautiful fireplace. The food here was good and abundant, but what impressed me most was the service. Our waitress was so nice and kind to our daughter and to us. She made me taste the beer before I ordered it, and she came to check on us multiple times. I had a lobster... More

Recommended by our customer while on a business trip, I met my coworker in the tavern downstairs for dinner. Only one other table occupied besides a few bar patrons...not a good sign for what was touted as a popular dining establishment. Menu was one of those I consider too long to ensure quality food (how could they possibly keep all... More

Its definitely an elegant place. Great food, at a reasonable price. Very elegant space and the service was really impeccable. If you're in the area, definitely have a stop in at least to see the building.

Had the friday fish fry, nice couple of pieces of fish with breading that was just right. Popover and butter nice change from bread. Bartender was very professional and handled some obnoxious customer with a polite what can I get you.

We often enjoy dining at the Lincklaen House and have never had a bad experience. Once when service was slow, they promptly offered a round of complimentary drinks. The star of the show is the main dining room, a beautiful Federalist style room with wonderful architectural detail. It's a step back in time with great food, friendly staff, and beautiful... More

This restaurant has a large menu, but we both had trouble finding something we'd like to eat. We each settled for pasta dishes which were just ok. The complimentary puff pastry was outstanding.
