The venison was cooked to perfection. Service was excellent. Dining in a historic building with views of the wood fireplace on a cold winter night, I couldn't think of a better place to dine.

My husband and I ate dinner here for a romantic evening and they did not disappoint. We happened to be lucky enough to go there on the night of their once a month candlelight dinner. With the entire restaurant under candlelight and a cozy fire what more could you ask for. My steak was perfectly done and tasted so fresh.... More

My wife and I had dinner here while staying at the Taconic Inn in Manchester. It is one of the truly historic structures in the area in which dining is available. They have taken pains to maintain the historic old motif. There are a number of small dining rooms which are reminiscent of the 19th-century inn experience. The food was... More

My husband and I dined here after hearing about its great reviews. We love the old school charm of Manchester. Upon entering the place resembles a 19th century home converted to dining, separated rooms and dining areas. There are many old pictures and artifacts on the walls, all adding to the 19th century charm of the place. The lighting was... More

Felt like we had gone back in time. This restaurant is in a quaint 200 year old home with a wonderful roaring fire. Started with the appetizer of buffalo sausage which was fantastic. Entrees were Fisherman's Platter and Pot Roast, both of which were delicious. Dessert was the apple cranberry crisp which was very tasty and fresh. The service was... More
