This was a wonderful place. We had an excellent dinner in a beautiful old historic house. Our waitress, a young woman with a strong interest in history gave us the story of the building and the town and offered us a tour.

Served great meals and average meals. Guess it depends on the on duty Chef. Great beer selection and a friendly atmosphere. Nice patio to have dinner outside.

Went to Joe's for Easter Brunch. The food was good but was lacking in certain area's. The salad and desert station could have had more choices. The prime rib was excellent and so was the salmon.
