We followed the recommendation of our hotel. Dinner was wonderful starting with the homemade bread. We enjoyed the spinach and cheese ravioli, pesto pizza and the fried fish sandwich. Everything was delicious. The restaurant is located in a beautiful old house.

As a local, I've had many opportunities to visit The Sumner House. It is never disappointing so I felt I must review after eating there for several years. For starters, the menu is varied but not too broad. Therefore, everything on it is a specialty....More
