Dined in the dining room after check in to the hotel. Adequate menu choices. Soup/Salad bar available with dinners. Food arrived in a timely manner. Service was excellent. Never felt rushed. Cheerful staff. Some unusual traffic in the dining area due to use of adjoining rooms. Nice cozy fireplace in dining area.

We have been at the door Doherty many many times. Still family-owned Historic Hotel and restaurant. Great service complimentary home cooked breakfast in the morning. Also a great place to have a business meeting in the center of the state.

We stayed at the hotel and ate here a few times. Our dinner was really great. Hubbie had the salmon - big portion and perfectly done. I had the corned beef sandwich and it was really awesome. The value was great. Would definitely go again.
