Perfect dinner outside during sunset. We had roast chicken with creamy polenta and the market catch today which was Arctic char with beluga lentils. Started with the meat and cheese platter and two glasses of wine.
All were fantastic.
Found out we could have taken our dog if eating outside! Next time..

Loved this place!! Took my husband for his birthday and had a lovely dinner. The roasted Brussels sprouts appetizer was delicious as were our entrees, Arctic Char and Roasted Cauliflower. We had wine but will be back for the good looking cocktails and other menu items. Warm atmosphere and great service too!

I can never say enough nice things about The Guest House. The food is outstanding, the service is wonderful, the venue is lovely (and not too noisy), AND it's so close to home! I let my kids pick where to go for dinner, and this was their #1 choice. I forgot to use my Passport card (what a great deal!), but I don't regret a penny - support local business and treat yourself!

The staff was friendly and welcoming. Our waiter provided excellent service—was attentive, but not overly so. And the food was very good—nice portions with rich flavors. We were on the quieter side of the restaurant and were able to hold conversations without straining to hear, unlike many of the newer restaurants.

Great food and fun environment if you want some good farm to table deliciousness. Make sure you save room for the best chocolate mousse with toasted s’more on top!

Our second time eating at The Guest House. Sometimes you return only to find the experience not as good the second time around - but it was every bit as excellent as we remembered. The polenta is worth the trip alone!

Excellent food. We went there for a mid-week business lunch. The outside of the restaurant still looks a bit unpromising, and the place was unfortunately nearly empty. That said, the salmon salad was fabulous, the service was good, and portions plentiful.

Good food and close to home. A little on the pricey side so we wouldn't make it a weekly thing. Could use more gluten free options.

We love this place, and go to it almost once a week as a family. We have a toddler and the restaurant, and staff, is very family friendly. The pizzas are great and the rotating menu has been awesome. Recommend the cocktails too!
