In an attempt to contact the Charles City Tavern I found that the phone number listed on the website is no longer in service. Does anyone know if it is closed?

They had a set menu for lunch with several selections. I choose the crab cakes (2) and it included veggies, soup or salad and a desert all for $30. It was by far on the BEST meals I have eaten. Great atmosphere, service and food.
