The ambience is great, there is even the presence of a couple of friendly spirits to add to the appeal. The staff is friendly and helpful, the bartender is the best around! The menu is good with the chief taking care to offer local ingredients...More

For as prestigious as this place supposedly is, I've never had a meal here that rose to the pomp. Menu is not very extensive, prices are inflated. Service is excellent but unless you're out on the patio the atmosphere is a bit subdued and stuffy.

Food was good and waitstaff was friendly. The décor is nice but if you are in a hurry there is not enough time runs over lunch hour.

After touring Letchworth State Park we wanted to have dinner close to the B&B where we were staying. Since Trip Advisor reviews were mixed we were unsure what to expect. I am pleased to write that the food, service and ambience were all outstanding. Unlike...More
