    Delaware Dines Out was a great opportunity to try a restaurant that would ordinarily be beyond my purse. The food and service were excellent, but I was a bit disappointed with the size of the entree portions. I had the Poached Pear and Root Vegetable Salad, Herb Gremoulata Crusted Diver Scallops and the Brownie “Smores”. The salad was a good size, but the entree had five sea scallops about a half dollar size -- not what I would consider normal size for a sea scallop. The veg with the entree was also on the skimpy side. The S'more was good but I would have preferred a "cake" brownie instead of a fudge brownie -- a matter of personal taste. The servers were very attentive. Had a great evening with my good friend and college roommate!!

    Much older crowd, as expected. Went during restaurant week, had never been before. It was a good way to try it for a little less $$. All of the food was great, especially the pork belly to start and the french toast for dessert. Attentive service and perfectly timed as well. Will definitely be going back to try the fall menu in a few weeks.

    Our experience was mediocre. At the last minute we added one to our party. The hostess came across very annoyed. She informed us we would have to wait as they hadn't set the table for 3 (our reservation was for 2). A woman sitting there said they also has changed their party size and were waiting as well. We didn't mind waiting at all, just didn't appreciate being treated as we were. There were no other people around and only 3 or 4 tables of diners. After we were seated our server was lovely. The soup was excellent, the sandwich was fine. There are 2 dining areas. One is very dark and we were thankful to not be eating there. It was nice and quiet making it easy to talk however we will not be in a hurry to go back.

    Elegant dining room sets the tone for the attentive service and outstanding cuisine. The wine list is extensive, but the real plus for me was the quality of the by-the-glass pours. We were dealing with mismatched entrees and ended up ordering a good quality Pinot and high quality white Burgundy. Both suited the food well. We are adding this to our regular rotation and hope to visit again for the fall menu.

    Saturday breakfast was very good - breakfasters were presented with a single small quickbread/muffin apiece, butter, and apricot spread, all delicious. I ordered two eggs ($3), which came cooked as ordered, and although an a la carte item, were filling. Eggs Benedict with spinach ($12) didn't disappoint. Coffee was OK, nothing exceptional here. (Etiquette instruction is needed for those clearing tables ... it should be done differently in a restaurant than at home.) Tap water sometimes tastes fine, other times like it should have been filtered.

    Came for a special anniversary dinner. Cream of Crab soup was delicious. Steak and rock fish entrees were fine, but nothing extraordinary - better can be had. Rockfish was cooked more than described (translucent in center) - other diners had asked to have it cooked more, so mine was served that way. Dessert, peach "ice cream" was icy and despite an abundance of fruit, not peachy in flavor. Later explained as being gelato. Not. Returned it and they took it off the bill. After dinner, we found their former chef left May, 2013. Rats. It had been our favorite special-occasion spot, but has fallen a notch. Gone were many of the game dishes and variety. Before, 5 stars all the way; now, 3.5 stars.

    Don't let the name and "unusual" decor lead you astray. This is an elegant restaurant with upscale food. There are two prices on the menu -- for a small portion and a large portion. We found the small portions perfect for us, but many would find them too skimpy. If you take the small portion, it's not expensive, but the large portion doubles the price.

    There were five of us for lunch. This is a good place to go if you are at Winterthur. The atmosphere is whimsical and the food was quite good. However, the experience was diminished by very poor service. After waiting at least five minutes we were offered drinks. They came out slowly. Our lunch was even slower. Our waitress then disappeared and we never saw her again. We were never offered coffee or dessert. I finally asked a passing woman for a check, which was wrong. We were charged $8.00 for a tomato juice cocktail. I would give the restaurant another try and hope for better service next time.

    My sister & I had brunch which was absolutely delicious! The service was courteous & knowledgeable. The lighting in the room was a little too dark, but the waitress placed us near the enclosed porch, so we benefitted from that light. We loved the décor. Overall, we had a very pleasant experience.

    This was our first time and we chose to do breakfast. It was such a wonderful experience! We were there quite a while but I think that is how they set up the experience... to be relaxing, to enjoy your family time, and enjoy the scenery outside the window ("stop and smell the roses"). The staff was very polite and friendly. We also could tell each plate was handled individually with a lot of care (and very generous portions) and that too is why it took longer than first expected. We didn't care, had no where to be and enjoyed every bit of our time there! The food was Phenomenal!!!! We cannot wait to return again!

    Their signature dish, the crab bisque, was fabulous. Best I have ever had. The presentation of the food was beautiful. The serving people were very efficient and polite. Their were 4 of us in our party and we each had a different entree. All of them were terrific. The duck breast was a standout. We loved the decor of the restaurant.

    The food was great, but we think it's time to add more padding to the chairs. The seats in the dining room become uncomfortable after awhile. That detracts from a leisurely dinner.

    Krazy kats has always been my favorite lunch spot until this past Friday (August 1). All 3 of us agreed that the food at this restaurant has goner downhill. My crab cakes were dry. My friend's sandwich was on an untoasted English muffin. The third friend's fillet was raw and tasteless. On a bright note, though, the desserts were excellent.

    I was very disappointed with the dinner entree. Being a native of the Eastern Shore of Maryland, I had high hopes for the crab cakes, but found them lacking. There was an after-taste, which I originally contributed to my adding too much salt. However, when I sampled the second crab cake, without the salt, the after-taste still existed. My sister, who had the same entree, voiced the same opinion. I have had excellent lunches at the restaurant, which is why I chose the restaurant and wanted to my visiting sister to have a pleasant dining experience. However, it didn't turn out that way. Very hesitant to return.
