    This is a must stop for a wonderful dining experience. The quaint area of The Plains is so sweet and the Bistro has a comfortable and welcoming feel. It's as casual as you want to make it or it can be a date night all dressed up! We had the Crab dip as an appetizer and it was out of this world. I grew up on the Chesapeake so I am a crab snob and this would have made my mom proud. The owner, Sean, is such a great guy and he is working his patoot patootie off. Reservations are very much recommended as this is a very popular spot and only open from Thurs. thru Sunday right now.

    Overall, it was a good experience and great food. There was a problem with a large party before us who arrived late and stayed long, which caused a backup in seating and food (it's a small place). The owner and staff were apologetic and did their best to accommodate. We sat at the bar and had a great time. They checked on us frequently, and when the food came, it was excellent. Definitely would go again.

    Came here for the first time for Easter. I had the Deviled Bacon & Eggs and my wife had the Bruschetta Trio. For the main course, I had the Prime Rib Benedict and she had the Crabcake Benedict. For desert, we ordered the Strawberry Cheesecake and the Flourless Chocolate Torte...to go. We were stuffed! We are definitely planning a trip back in the future. Very nice place.

    Sean and his team have created a new experience that congers up memories of the old one at The Front Porch. Friendly staff (Tiffany running the hostess desk, Ginger checking on tables, helping with food running, etc., bar staff, waitstaff all in smiles) along with Sean passing by to ensure he connects with as many diners as he can, checking on the overall experience. The food was plentiful (I'm still enjoying the pasta with Bolognese and meatballs!), the wine list has some nice new international additions for the region, not the same tired VA, CA wines on many menus. Happy to have this local spot back open again and wishing them great success. From my experience on a Sat. night, they won't be going away as it was packed.

    Overall, the experience was positive and we will go back. There were a few hiccups that need to be worked out … like not having many of the beers listed on the menu available.
