I've been here many times over the years and it is always very good! The staff is professional and efficient, wait time on the food is always very short, and most importantly the food is awesome! I've never had anything bad here. They have indoor and outdoor dining, and the building is historical and interesting. You definitely can't go wrong... More

We've dined here too many times to count. Mostly dinner but lunch as well. We live fairly close but the setting feels like we are on a bucolic vacation. The food is delicious and well prepared, the cost is very reasonable and the service is excellent. The kitchen is very accommodating and has honored every request we've made. Although we've... More

We have a unique group with one of us vegan and the other one gluten and lactose free, no problem here. The owner works the front of the restaurant and came over to find out what we needed then hand carried our dishes to the table. They modified the menu in one case and made something not on the menu... More

As always, the food is excellent and the service is also excellent. We eat here on special occasions. Reservations are recommended, however sometimes you can get in just fine as a walk-in.

This restaurant is a great small little getaway. Prices are a little on the pricier side but are well worth the food quality and taste. I will most definitely go back!

We stopped in on a Sunday evening. The food was limited in choice but was tasty. The fried mushrooms were a meal in themselves! Service was good but overall, a little pricey. Not the place for children.

First a bit of background. Some family members of ours get together for the holidays but often AFTER the holiday rush. Richland County is close to a middle meeting ground. Two years ago we had a wonderful Sunday dinner (in January) at the Malabar Farm restaurant near Lucas, Ohio. It’s an inviting place. Last Sunday we met there again. I... More

Every time we dine here it is an adventure. The food is always prepared in a delicious manner and the servings are quite ample. It is a great place to get away out in the country and enjoy the moment.

I treated our guest who had never been here before. They were pleased with their salmon. I had a T-bone which was cooked to perfection. My wife had lamb. She said it was delicious.
