What a waste of my holiday! Tiny portions of over priced cold food that was nothing more than cafeteria quality. The pumpkin and tomato soup tasted the same. Even the waitress could not tell the difference. Even the way over priced alcoholic drink I ordered was very weak.The service was slow. The waitress seemed like we were her first customers... More

The decor was okay but then again it is so dark in there you can't see well. The food was edible but not worth the price and tasted like it was store bought not prepared there. I would not waste my money again especially since it is more expensive than many nicer restaurants.

I love the idea of this place but it has been allowed to deteriorate so much it is shameful! For the cost of a wedding there, it should be a much nicer venue! Food was mediocre at best....no organization....no one seemed to know what was going on.....no one gave directions on where to sit at the outside ceremony which started... More

We had a party of 6 for the Mother's Day Brunch. The house/restaurant is in need of updating and cleaning! The food was cold and looked like it was sitting in the pan for quite awhile. Took a plate to get the items that I thought looked good enough to eat and the plate was greasy and dirty underneath. Went... More

Went here last night for their Haunted Mansion Mystery Dinner. Food was TERRIBLE! But their Halloween inspired drinks were Awesome, although expensive. Decorations were great, mystery show was good. Place is run down, and should be renovated. A new chef would help also. Pretty pricey for $60 a person, but we still managed to have a good time.

This place was on my bucket list to visit, and while I loved the house and grounds they are in bad shape. Paint needed everywhere, cleaning inside and out, general maintenance severely lacking. Food was pretty much frozen or packaged. Nothing outstanding at all and I really wanted it to be. I wish Someone would invest some money to make... More

Wow, not sure where to begin. Had read the negative reviews and feedback from others but figured we would give it a try for the Halloween Mystery dinner. At $60/person the result was ALL TRICK/NO TREAT. Service was terrible. A good 15 minutes before we were even waited on for drinks, microwaved from frozen hor'dovres, a salad that was delivered...

This restaurant is a local staple. Hear people as far and wide wanting to come down to try it. My question is, why??? This place may have been something else back in the day but certainly not so today. The house is run down and just feels dirty. I know people who used to work as the staff and I... More

Had dinner at Bennett-Curtis last night. As always the decorations they do for Halloween are great. They have ghouls walking around scaring people and just having fun. They need to put more effort into their food. Mushroom caps were fair to poor and might have been frozen and just heated. Was told that we can order Prime Rib but it... More
