The food is good, very fresh. The Layout of the place is very interesting. I found the portions lunch sized. Pricing is ok. Service is phenomenally good.

Atmosphere was great! Loved the schoolhouse decorations, but was thrown off by the rules posted on the table about being polite, tidying table, making sure your children behaved, etc. Hopefully it was a play on the old schoolhouse rules, but I'm not sure. My daughter loved her chicken pie. My son's chicken fingers were strange...kind of rubbery. My quesadilla was... More

Comfortable quaint place for a nice lunch. Good food and reasonable prices. Was disappointed with coleslaw, more like soup. Otherwise was great. Have been there a few times and will go again.

A nice spot for breakfast on a Sunday morning. Quiet in November. Prices were quite reasonable, portions were ample and the food was overall quite good, I enjoyed everything except the pancakes. But the biscuits were good, the service excellent.

Overall, we really enjoyed our experience .... stopped here on a whim for a late Sunday lunch. Small little place that was pretty packed when we arrived - make a reservation for sure. We did wait for some time after entering to be acknowledged ... there were at least 5 staff that moved past us at different points and not... More
