I believe the gentleman that owned the place is very ill and the family is not in a position to take it over. We hope his health improves. Thank you for all the wonderful dinners.

A reliable source told us that Appian is for sale. Could be true as restaurant has not opened since closing for summer. Hopefully someone will buy it and give Fountain Hillers a choice when we want to go out to have a nice dinner ....More

Reasonable prices. Excellent service. Quiet cozy atmosphere. Then when the food arrived, things got even better! The dishes we ordered were fresh, hot and delicious. Realistically, each dish was approximately two servings - and the staff was super nice about providing to-go boxes.
