The food was very good but our service got a little "iffy" toward the end of the meal. But overall, it was a very pleasurable experience.

The Food and Service are VERY GOOD.... They are located on Main Street near the Washington County , Virginia Courthouse..... The only drawback is the limited parking, so choose your dining time carefully, don't go at the NORMAL times...go a little early.

The stuffed filet is one incredible steak! Other menu items are also very good. Rustic atmosphere in a historic building. Servers are friendly and attentive with knowledge of food prep and customer favorites. Reservations needed for groups of four or more, especially on weekends.

We arrived for an early dinner and were seated in a cozy, small dining room, complete with a fire. The menu selections were varied and included some German specialties. My companion enjoyed an evening's special "surf and turf," steak and scallops, served over delicious rice....More
