    I love the view by the creek! The server was friendly and attentive. We had the filet mignon and a veal dish - both of which were delicious. Definitely a good find and we will go back to try some other dishes. As a bonus, we saw a scarlet tanager while dining.

    We love the food and service is always wonderful. It's a hidden gem. Their salad dressings are homemade and delicious. The view of the creek is so nice from the seating inside. We will be back again and again.

    Probably our first and last visit, just not to our liking. The good was a friendly staff and a nice view of the creek. The not so good was the food and the price for the quality of the food.

    Found this hidden treasure on Groupon and were very pleasantly surprised. Adorable building, super friendly and helpful staff, delicious food and beautiful table settings. The perfect date night spot, I got the scallops which were perfectly cooked, so delicious! Everything is made in-house down to the bread rolls and salad dressings. Highly recommend!

    Overall it was okay. Heard lots of good things and it felt a little underwhelming. Would go again with reframed expectations.

    Service was almost terrible. Even with other wait staff our waitress was overwhelmed. Refills were nearly impossible to get. The food was meh. My wife and I both had the prime rib. Terrible cut of beef to begin with. Then the steak was over charred and lacking flavor. The atmosphere was dark and cold. Furniture totally uncomfortable and has seen better days. Wouldn’t waste your time or money here unless you’re desperate

    A quaint hide away worth finding!!! We are new to the area and enjoyed the good food, ambience and county side setting. All the dishes served are made from scratch onsite and the Prime rib was delicious. Next time I will try the homemade Pasta!!!!! Oh yes there will definitely be a NEXT TIME!!!!!

    There was a sign that you had to wear masks when not seated but the waitress and water girl were not wearing masks. Seemed strange since they had a sign up. Just wanted to clarify that this isn't a negative review because the food was great.

    Celebtated my birthday there with a friend who loves the restaurant as much as I do. The Diver dry scallops are to die for with their vegetable medly and salad. Everything was done to perfection. Go there for a great dinner. You will not be disappointed. Ashlee is always very friendly and is great. When making a reservation, they will try to accommodate you for whatever you need. Everyone there takes Covid-19 very seriously. Thanks for a great celebration at this time when some people are struggling.

    The one thing I would mention is the servers and staff did not wear masks which is required in PA. I would hope the restaurant is aware of this requirement and not purposefully ignoring the mandate. The food is EXCELLENT! My stuffed flounder was filled with lots of crab (no filler!). My son had the shrimp and scallops which were tender and flavorful and hubby enjoyed his veal dish.

    With COVID_19 and the restrictions on restaurants across the state, Christine's was accommodating, compliant, and cooked an amazing meal as usual. The portions were GENEROUS! Support local, small businesses!

    The food here is fantastic. That's the good news. Service is ok but inexperienced. Staff seemed shocked that we ordered a bottle of wine and despite the fact that there was a page in the menu for bottles, it seems unlikely this happens often.
