This was a New Year's dinner and they pulled out all the stops! A wide variety of appitizers, saless, entrees, and desserts. The Steamship Round was melt in your mouth delicious. Prices were fair. Can't say enough about this great restaurant.

I was here for a conference. They had breakfast snacks available when we arrived at 830 with coffee and water on each table. At lunch we had a wonderful self serve buffet style meal. At each break in the day, they would provide snacks including pop, chips, crackers, cheeses, cookies and more. The grounds were beautifully maintained. The white chairs... More

Our friends took us for a special treat for our anniversary. It was a fantastic meal in a truly lovely and well-maintained old home with meticulously maintained grounds. This would be a wonderful place for a wedding or special group event. On the appetizer menu last weekend was a grilled peach dish with ham. It was juicy and delicious. Two... More

We dined here the other night. The food and service was top notch. The atmosphere is like dining in a mansion. Great experience. My wife and I both had the 12 ounce steak, it was covered in a creamy garlic sauce and topped with straw onion, with green beans and au gratin potatoes with spinach salad. If you're looking for...

We had our wedding here in August 2014. Beautiful setting, excellent food, and wonderful staff. We had an open bar with plated food. Everyone raved about the seafood and chicken. We loved the place so much we are thinking about renewing our vowes there at our 10 year anniversary.

This is only my second time here, and I am not sure I would go back. The rooms are quaint and quiet, no music. The service is very slow. The waitress has to run downstairs and out the door to get our drinks, and food. By the time she gets back to take our order, we already need drink refills.... More
