Delicious birthday dinner in a quaint setting. The cheese plate was fabulous and the seafood special was amazing. We will go back when we return to VT.

First time was great, second time not so much. The location and decor are great. Nice beer and wine list. Some of the dishes are wonderful while others are average at best.

We don't really have a dress code. Seems most guests usually dress in a smart casual fashion. That said, though, shorts, jeans, t-shirts are perfectly acceptable. Looking forward to seeing you soon. Mark & Linda
