I have been here a number of times for work events, private parties, brunch, etc. It has a lovely setting in a garden; and the menu is appetizing and appeals to every taste. It may not be the easiest restaurant to get to; but it is worthwhile.

This place was fantastic! I'd never heard of it & was recommended by a friend as a Great Date Location. It did not disappoint! There are beautiful old trees, a lil' pond, beautiful lights & candles on tables..it was something out of early 1900's! The food was great, but don't expect Huge portions like some restaurants. It's all well put... More

I have been here many times and it never disappoints. The beignets severed with every meal are SO good, and the outside space is beautiful. Great place to go for a romantic dinner, and equally good with a group for a nice lunch.

The atmosphere here is comfortable, The cottage style restaurant has a large outside patio complete with rows of lights and plenty of pants and decor. The food is a bit on the higher side but all was very good. I had the Texas style beef brisket, other food ordered was the pork chops, super yummy, and Grannys friend chicken. When... More

The indoor and outdoor eating areas are very cozy, the food and wines were very good, I had a half portion and that was too much. The main meals come with fantastic apple fritters, soup or salad, good value. All of the staff were friendly, helpful and happy! And the adjacent buildings are the loveliest gift shops, like a wonderland... More

First time at this restaurant since it moved from Belmont Shore and I was under th impression we were going to lunch. They do not serve breakfast so we had a wonderful lunch. The restaurant is a very pretty cottage-like place with a wonderful patio in the garden/pond area. The restaurant is famous for its fried chicken and delirious apple... More

I love this little tucked away dining spot. Always fun. Had been there a few times and dined outside on the patio during the day, in the evening it becomes magical with twinkie lights dangling from the trees and patio. Romantic, comfortable, homey....you'll love the atmosphere. And...you'll love the food. Great fun spot. Go, you wont' regret it.

First time I have been to this restaurant. The food is great and service was fantastic. Portions are large so you can share unless you have a really big appetite.

Our waitress Kelly was very fast and friendly.I ordered Seabass at the MP price and while it was good was surprised to see it cost $38.95. My mistake always ask what the price is. The... More
