Staying in Harpers Ferry found this place online. You have to email the Chef/Owner to get reservations. We had a fantastic appetizer, salads and the entrees were delicious. Wine list was reasonably priced as well. Definitely will be going back when I'm in town again.

Just okay place to eat. Salmon was over cooked, steak was over cooked, but shrimp & Grits were good, and the Chef Kev salad was good.

We live close by but decided to make our first visit on a rainy overcast evening. The main dining room is a large room in a historic house and had local historic decorations. The andouille sausage bites were a delicious, spicy appetizer. The entrees were...More

Made reservations and even traded a few emails with Chef Kev. The historic home was a great start to our dining. It added to the experience. Everything that we ate was excellent and well prepared. It is reasonably priced as well.

I only wish I'd been able to eat more. While it's written on the menu, you could glance over the fact that they source produce from their own organic farm. From the salad with greens that are beautiful, crisp and delicious to the green and...More

I don't recall as I was not looking for that type of food. Chef Kev is the best, in sure if you email him he can answer any questions.
