My brother was married in the upstairs room overlooking the water falls. The room is breathtaking with samples of the glass blowing from the showroom below. The windows were adorned with tiny white lights and the hard wood floors sparkled. The staff was quite excellent...More

This has been a favorite stop for 30 years. We usually go for lunch and tie it in with shopping in their crystal showroom. The waiting line for lunch was too long so we decided to try the new cafe where a table was available....More

This is dining at its best. Beautiful setting, professional staff and creative menu. If you are visiting the area this worth it. Yes pricy, but if you enjoy fine dining it is worth it.

They try to give attitude of an exclusive place, but after getting early reservation and then acting like we got the last reservation, restaurant was half full. We split a pear salad, which was very small for $10. I got the duck, which was just...More

This restaurant was recommended by several people and we were not disappointed. The view from the screened porch was charming and the food delicious. The selection changes with the season as the side dishes were created from local produce.

Great food with a great setting in an old mill building overlooking the river, the falls, and the Quiche covered bridge. Some unusual dishes, good wine list and delightful, knowledgeable servers.
