We REALLY wanted this place to be good since it is less than a mile from home. It wasn't. Her baked tomato soup was not hot. My hot roast beef with gravy not only was not hot (picture semi-coagulation gravy) but it was supposed to...More

As always, this restaurant never disappoints. It is located in an old house/tavern with small intimate quiet rooms. The food and drinks are terrific along with the service. We always enjoy our dinners here. There is parking behind the restaurant.
