First time here - need to make reservations. Food was beyond excellent- service was great. There were weddings all weekend long, never was an issue for us. The place is clean and the history is so interesting.

we are foodies, (but also like really good local food). This restaurant advertises as elegant upscale dining. It is not, at least in terms of a national scale. The space, a well renovated Victorian mansion, is very attractive, with coffered ceilings and elaborate woodwork, though...More
