Intimate experience; not noisy; good food; good wait staff. So handy when you attend Playhouse upstairs.

The food excellent. For the money, you'd expect glitz and glamour, but this place is simply fun and comfortable. Situated on the ground floor of the old school house, the playhouse is above, the restaurant is wonderful. Full bar, extensive menu, and the service is always terrific. You will be very pleased.

Took my wife for Valentine's Day dinner and the meal was excellent as was the service. Great atmosphere too. Not too stuffy with just the right amount of special to ensure our experience was exceptional. We will be back and I will order the crab cakes again!!

Nothing terribly wrong or offensive about this place, but everything tasted and looked like it was from a frozen dinner. Uninspired and forgettable.

Had a delicious meal and wonderful service. The staff was courteous and prompt from start to finish. The menu had a variety to chose from and the food was tasty. The atmosphere was great for a date night or girls night out.

I visited this restaurant last year with my fiancé. I was expecting high quality food and service due to having to make reservations. I ordered steak, and it was over cooked - almost well done - filet mignon too. I thought the food was mediocre at best. Im assuming their ambiance and location along with their reputation/brand keep prices high.... More

It starts with the inside of the restaurant, neat, cozy and lovely. Everyone was so very nice and our waiter was very attentive. The food was delicious from the appetizer through the dessert. This place is a MUST try! We will return may times.

We were at a table with nice guests. Drink orders were taken in a timely manner and served in a reasonable time. The salad was crisp and fresh. The crab cakes I ordered were very good. I left the table with a pleasant felling saying I will return.

Quaint little restaurant! Great place to eat before watching a show upstairs at the place house. Food is average, but they have a great wine list!

Thank Tony H
