The Courthouse is very consistent in what they offer - decent food at a good price in a nice atmosphere. I go there several times a month for lunch or dinner, alone or with friends.

We visited on Dec 17 around 1 pm, and everyone loved their meals and appetizers. The Cajun shrimp and potato skins were delicious. Fabulous waitress.

Had dinner at the Courthouse recently and the food was excellent. Also an excellent micro-brew draft beer list. Service also excellent and great value for the money. Parking a bit of a challenge to find.
