Come here for the atmosphere (our Cabernet was also good). Food, however, was truly middling. Ravioli was overcooked and also too salty. Chicken was tough and flavorless. Strawberry shortcake for dessert lacked sufficient strawberries (a lot of crime on a rather stale biscuit). Whole meal...More

We stopped for Sunday brunch but weren't excited about the brunch menu so ordered from the A La Carte menu instead. The Reuben was large, fresh and very good. Equally good was the cheeseburger. Nothing too exciting. The restaurant is very comfortable and pleasant. Service...More

Excellent, Everything was excellent. I attended the fife and Drum on 11-24-17, they were busy, but I got seated quick, and my food came out quick. Julio, Pedro, and Jimmy are pretty nice and excellent waiters

Saw this appear in places you might have been and was reminded of a visit much earlier this year. Came across this restaurant by chance on a cold Spring day. The wood fire and interior decor made for a very cozy ambience. What surprised us...More

Disappointed all around! Visited on 2 occasions this past weekend while attending a festival. First experience was for lunch. Although wait staff was friendly, the service was extremely poor and food mediocre! My water glass was never refilled and served in a tiny bar glass....More

Highly recommended by more than one couple. Also recommended by the Inn we stayed at. We were very disappointed. Dry pork wrapped in rubbery bacon with some stove top stuffing doesn't make the grade in my book. Creaky old chairs in a dark room with...More
