I work nearby, so I've been here for lunch often. But I never went for dinner until now. Very good food and service. Historical site going back to the revolution. Make sure you ask them to tell you the history of the place.

We made a reservation for four of us today, January 1st, for lunch. You would of thought we would have been told that we could not order off the menu and there was only a brunch buffet offered, but that was not the case. When we got there we decided to do the $29.00 buffet. Finding a welcoming person who worked there was an impossiblilty. It took forever to get a cup of coffee both after we sat down and throughout our whole stay. It got so bad that all the tables had designated a person to walk up to the serving table and pour their own coffee which was actually cool since it was just sitting out in metal containers. What else we found was that they had 2 senior citizens group functions in another part of the restaurant who, rather than getting their own buffet, they too used the same buffet as everyone else in one small room. Can you imagine the madness of 40 plus seniors with canes, walkers, and motorized jazzies, all getting up for food at once! Can you believe they had only one food carver and one omelet maker for 50 plus patrons!!!! The food was cold, picked through, or nonexistent. After reading the comments below I see this is the norm and none of us will be returning - EVER!

From the mannequin dressed in Revolutionary garb, waiting to greet you when you walk in the front door; to the cozy dining room with a fireplace, one feels transported back to George Washington's time. That is an experience in itself.
The food is VERY tasty. Some simple dishes, which suit the atmosphere. I believe much is locally gathered also.
Our server didn't have much "polish" but she was fine. She was friendly and eager to provide us with what we needed.
Of course, we were a group of 6 friends as eager to talk as to eat, so we weren't paying close attention to how long we waited, etc. Still, our dinner was over in under 2 hours. We were very satisfied.
This venue is also known for frequent musical talent performances.

Six Minnesotans stopped here on our way from a visit to West Point on our way back to NYC because of the historical significance. Ended up having the best meal of the entire week splurging in NYC. Service was very good. Menu was unique and extensive. The trout, duck, red deer, steak and salmon were all rated outstanding. The cocktails were well done. For dessert, the chocolate peanut butter pie was a favorite. Everyone wanted to steal the menus as a souvenir.
