Other reviews tell the story in more detail but four of us went for lunch at Rhody and each meal (all different) was fresh, tasty, contained quality ingredients and was made with careful preparation. In a word: Excellent. Worth the drive.

The meal was to die for. The pasta I had was so awesome and the Alfredo sauce was a dream. Salad dressing was the best, but then what do you expect when it is made fresh. Service was outstanding. Pricey, but very good.

I came with two girlfriends for a birthday lunch. The place is cute, a little rough around the edges, but the food was fresh and good. The drive here is so worth it. We made a day of it, walking at Bayview and having epic ice cream cones at the Snow Goose on the way to Conway. Nothing spectacular, but... More

It's out in the middle of nowhere but has survived because of its incredible food. Low key intimate atmosphere in what was once a house. They have expanded now and changed hands from the original owners but has maintained its draw. Still our first pick for a fine dining experience.

This is a little jewel in the middle of nowhere! The options for our luncheon were many, and all around the same price of $13. The food was incredibly fresh and beautifully plated. It looked like a plate from a high class restaurant in Seattle or Vancouver. The flavours were exceptional. Will definitely come back, and have already told my... More

We were kept standing in line for a good 10 minutes even though there were plenty of tables available. No apologies, no explanations. Then they were out of the dish I wanted and other dishes too. When my breakfast was presented there was a skimpy amount of jam and no butter for my toast. I've been going to this place... More

My husband and i ended up eating breakfast here because you could use a credit card and you couldn't next door. We ordered one of the specials and split the order. We had a scramble with shitake, bacon and cheese and spinach. It was good, service was quick and with a smile but i make just as good if not... More
