Ashleigh our waitress did an excellent job. If you are looking for good food at a reasonable price give this place a try. Felton is a cute town and this was an un- expected find.

Newly opened restaurant with no correlation to the previous Empire Grille which was popular a decade or more ago. Decor is ho-hum, food is good, service was excellent. The new menu is conservative; the restaurant seems to be playing it safe as they become established....More
