The restaurant is in a graceful Victorian house built in the mid-1800’s, with elegant rooms and table settings (actually setting the place rather than rolling the silver up in the napkin- yeah!). It has more seating capacity than you would think, yet the noise level was just right (not too loud for conversation nor so quiet that it was awkward). The menu was varied and interesting. The bread basket was delicious. The wine choices were limited, and by the glass only, but we found our choice to be very good. We loved the smoked shad appetizer and scallops wrapped in bacon. My beet salad and crab cake entrée were both delicious. My mousse cake may be the best chocolate cake I ever had. The homemade vanilla ice cream I asked for on the plate was also delicious. My husband also enjoyed his onion soup, pork chop special and especially the crème brûlée. The staff members seemed to know many of the patrons, but were also sincerely friendly to us as out-of-towners. The timing of the service was good, but I would have preferred if the server didn’t seem so rushed. She seemed to walk by the table while talking or dropping off dishes rather than stopping at the table and engaging with us. I find a more relaxed pace to be more conducive to a fine dining experience. We would definitely return on another trip.
