Nice surroundings and great food but very expensive. Nice sunny porch and a great place to have a romantic glass of wine. They have an extensive wine list for the wine lovers.

We vacation in Stoen Harbor annually and the Ebbitt Room at the Virginia Hotel is always on the docket for dinner. Good cuisine, great ambiance and a nice bar wit piano music. Does not get much better!

I'm sorry to say, but the restaurant is not wheelchair accessible--all entrances to the hotel and restaurant require a short, half-flight of stairs to gain entry.
