Haven't been here for many a years, now I know why. The service was very good, but for what you are paying for a meal, you would expect a least a salad and a side. The meal had no sides except bread and an appetizer tray. Chicken Tuscan was tasty but the shrimp scampi wasn't the best. Sorry.

I met a friend for dinner. The service was excellent. I loved the wine. I liked the relish dishes they serve before the entree'. But my chicken kabobs could have been a little bit more tender. I would go back.

Haven't been here in years - since it was Ernie's Kings Mill. But we were looking for somewhere new and the reviews seemed pretty good. The weather was not good so when we got there, only a couple other tables were filled, along with several folks at the bar. Not a good sign I thought. But our evening was great.... More

I had the best food and time at Ernie's for a dinner and night out with friends. Then went there for a wedding and again for a wedding shower. The food and service were excellent at all times.

I drove by many times and didn’t know what a jewel I would find inside. I was greeted by a beautiful Taverna Table with a lavish arrangement of today’s fresh salads, pastries, and fresh fish. Our server was professional and knowledgeable on the 20 house wines all offered by the glass. Our dinner party started with an outstanding bottled of... More

...So this place has by far the best and "freshest" food anywhere! Everything is made here.....from scratch....including all the desserts!!! My friends and I started with a few appetizers...Calamari, Saganaki...OPA!!!! and the 4 dip sampler served with their hot pita bread (which we ate way too much of). We ordered a traditional village salad and our waitress suggested to get... More

Outstanding venue, direct service and even better food. Reserved the wine room at Ernie's for special engagement and could not have been more impressed. My date could not stop talking about the calamari (could be best ever) and fresh bread. Tried the "nectar of the gods" martini. Drink came with frozen sugar covered grapes. Refreshing on a hot night. Even... More

We stopped in last Monday with two other couples and were surprised to see Ernie's had a steak dinner special that seemed too good to be true ... well it WAS true ... absolutely fantastic. A half pound Filet Mignon dinner for $19.95 ... that's right, an 8 oz. Tenderloin Steak with sauteed mushrooms, fresh green beans, and the best... More

My wild caught salmon was great, along with the spinach and rice combined together was very good. The hot fresh baked loaf of wheat bread was unexpected but very welcome. Our waitress was a little slow and not very attentive however. She never came by to offer a refill of my beverage. No excuse for it, because it was just... More
