The food here is spectacular! My husband and i had breakfast here for the first time recently, and we both agreed....it was the BEST breakfast we had ever had in our lives. Hands down. I had the Crabby Benedict, and my husband had the breakfast...special. The potatoes were so tasty, the Benedict was done to perfection and the sausage....well i can't say enough about that. Out of this world. Yes, there is a wait. But call ahead, and they let you know when your table is ready. The staff is VERY friendly. Five thumbs up!More

This is a nice little place with delicious, well prepared meals. I have to say up front...this place is not cheap. Atmosphere is upscale diner. But the food is prepared and presented as in a much more attractive venue.

Looked on line for a late breakfast and this came up along with a diner. The banana fosters pancakes were delicious. I knew 3 were too many and the server said I could get one, couldn't finish that. Definite hipster vibe, not much atmosphere and...noisy. I would go back for their lunch menu if I lived closer. They only have whole milk there.More

There are several constants with this restaurant: 1. the food is good, 2. the wait is long, and 3. You will be abused by the wait staff. With above average food and limited choices in the area, you learn to live with the other two...constants. My wife likes the place, so I bite my tongue and go with her. But today was the last straw. We called ahead and were told that by the time we arrived, we would have to wait another 20 minutes to get indoor seating. After arriving, we watch numerous groups that arrived after us be ushered to their table. It doesn't take long to realize that the girl out front is putting her friends ahead of the people that are waiting. After a 60 minute wait, we are told our table is ready. But instead of the indoor table that we asked and waited for, we are shown to one of the tables in the alley. Obviously, it will be our last trip to this restaurant.More

Ate dinner here twice as it was so good and outside 1st night I had jumbo seared scallops which were huge and delicious, hubby had the oven roasted chicken saltimbocca which was succulent. 2nd night I had bitter sweet salad& jumbo lump crabcake which was...so good & hubby had the tomato bisque which was creamy & ranch chicken burger with crispy sweet potato fries, again juicy and delicious. We definitely recommend this place for breakfast lunch & dinners the wait staff was extremely helpful and masked at all times.More

Three of us drove to Ligonier for a Sunday drive. Read the reviews and decided to eat at The Kitchen on Main. Like the reviews stated, the food was great and the service good. There is indoor and outdoor seating, and, if the weather is...nice, you might want to eat outdoors. I had the pepper crusted burger and my friends had a different sandwich. We were all happy with our choices. Keep in mind the restaurant closes at 3:00 on Sunday.More

My wife and I had breakfast there. She was able to make her own breakfast from three sides, I had the salmon omelette. I have had many this was the best. It tasted as if they used Scottish salmon and was delicious.

Stayed in Donnagel and looked this up on TripAdvisor. A long wait to get seated, due to Covid procedures. Service was great, staff was very friendly and food was great.

I love to have a meal here when I’m in Ligonier. The menu is always creative and the restaurant has a hip vibe. This trip did not disappoint. Because of Covid the restaurant was not open the first two days I was in town. I...was so excited that it was open for lunch on Wednesday. I believe that it is open later on Fridays and Saturdays. My friend and I both had the tacos for lunch. I have the tuna taco and my friend had a chicken. The tuna was delicious and cooked well. My friends chicken was equally good and moist. Both meals were well seasoned. I love the pickled jalapeño. The service was friendly and really pleasant. I will be back again the next time I’m in town!More

We can, however I strongly suggest calling about an hour before you plan to arrive. We do not take reservations but do have a call ahead system which is helpful when we have a wait, especially with a larger group. Thanks.
