The décor is pretty old and worn out looking and sometimes you just stand there at the welcome podium inside the door waiting for someone to come greet you. They seem short-staffed most of the time. Given that, however, the food is good. It takes quite awhile to get it but I've usually been happy with it. The Chicken Salad is good once I add a little more Mayo and some pickle to it. The homemade soups are usually really good. They also do home made potato chips that I could eat by the plateful. The price is rather high so we don't go there as often anymore. If you go during peak times, you may have trouble parking because for the most part, it's street parking in the Square and on side streets; and you will probably have to wait for a table. I get the impression that the owner/chef is really good on the food side of things and not so much on the management of the dining room and staff. That is just an impression based on the service and atmosphere vs. the food quality.

I've been there several times and every dish I have ordered has been exceptional. Highly recommend. Glad I live close by.

I met my daughter and granddaughter here for lunch. I had a salad and lobster bisque soup. She had a cob salad and lobster bisque soup. The three year old had cheese burger and fries. It was quick enough for the child's short attention span after a busy morning at PreK. We will visit again. Satisfied with the food and the service. Our bill was $30 not including tip.

We went here twice first time was great. Second time was horrible. I don't understand what happened. No one is ever there, like never but they stay in business. I don't get it.

I thought that it was in a great location on the square but there were only a few people eating at noon on a Friday? I had a Philly sandwich and Fried green tomatoes, the sandwich was good but the tomatoes had an odd taste.
