Tried the crab cakes and was not let down. With a bread, sweet potato and vegetables I could barely finish. Great atmosphere with a very cool bar. The main entrance is a little odd but the wait staff helps guide you to a seat if you end up wandering a little.

I am visiting this area on business and The Gas Light was recommended. All I can say is “Good Call”. The restaurant is very old and screams with personality and charm. It appears to be a place that locals frequent, but despite this my associate and I were treated like we were locals. The service was very friendly and attentive.... More

I got the crab cakes and they had plenty of lumps of crab meat. Once I picked out the lumps, I realized there was a large pile of filler and once the sauce ran out they were just so-so. The sweet potato was very good, but the carrots were mush. My friend had a steak served on the hot stone... More

This was a very pleasant experience. The restaurant is in what appears to be an old house and has an great feel. The service was fantastic and the food was excellent. Really enjoyed the shrimp and scallop pasta.

The Gas Light has a ton of atmosphere, great service, and the food was so good. Their onion soup is to die for. The roast beef sandwich was large and tender and juicy and the fries were very good. A house salad was crisp and fresh. Best of all, the prices were reasonable.

Stayed at the microtel hotel about a mile away while attending a conferance. The restaurant is quaint, like eating in a 19th century house (a 19th century house with a full bar). The food was great. I had gigantic broiled scallops which were delicious. My sister enjoyed her 2 large crab cakes which were mostly crab meat not filler. Service... More

Hotel we stayed at recommended this place and glad we decided to go. Cute little restaurant/bar. You get the feeling you're in someone's house. Food was very good, atmosphere was friendly and relaxing. I would eat here regularly if I lived locally.

Ate here last night with some co workers. The restaurant offers a unique steak experience. Steaks are served on a 700 degree stone. You actually cook the steak while you sit at your table. It's a unique and fun experience. If your ever in the area looking for a good steak, this is the place for you.
