We went to eat trout, but waitress said it wasn’t delivered by distributor for some reason. The crab cakes were burnt and tasteless. Margarita was terrible and sent back. Rest of food was mediocre. It was overpriced for quality of food!

We had an excellent dinner. The rack of lamb is outstanding and the trout is next best.
Our only problem is their limited beer supply. There was 1 each of a Corona and Amstel Light. No Coors at all. We are not fond of the local beers.

Service and food good value. Unfortunately someone at the table next to us decided to argue loudly about personal problems and drug usage almost the entire time we were there. Staff did nothing to urge them to keep their voice down.

The food was good but the service was not. The server kept sharing all of their problems ie: sorry the bread isn’t ready , we forgot about it and it burned so we’re remaking it . sorry we’re serving the salad on these plates, we ran out of salad plates. When we asked for more bread they said they were completely out of bread because they had more people than expected. They served the kids meal at least 30 minutes before everyone else. The kid is a tween not a 2 year old so she had to eat alone and sit without food while the rest of the table ate. They didn’t have enough menus for our 6 person table. It’s not a big deal but just showed a pretty disorganized restaurant. Only saving grace is that the food was at least good.

My husband and I both ordered filets. His was very chewy and while mine was fine, the steak didn’t have much flavor. It needed the sauce that came on it. The restaurant was nice and removed his from the bill, the food was disappointing.

Thanksgiving. A total flop. Service terrible and food ordinary. Wanted it to be special for my family but huge disappointment. Even our server told us to write a review cause of how off they were. Our wine never arrived despite asking twice.

The decor was rustic. We expected something more upscale for Thanksgiving.
The set menu did not offer much variety. No choices for soupand salad and two options for main course. Although the food was good it was overpriced.
The service was adequate but we felt that the server lacked experience and was trying her best.
I am sure that the restaurant might be a good choice for lunch or dinner after a busy day.

Started with one of the best soups I’ve ever had. Sadly, the entree that followed was a disappointment. My meat was significantly overcooked, and when I sent it back I apparently offended the chef. Our waitress was gracious and kind throughout, but it just wasn’t a great experience overall.

Several of us had meals that were overcooked, but overall they were delicious. The service was exceptional. It is a bit pricey. It's a small restaurant, so it was good for intimate conversation. It's decor is very nice. The outside seating is excellent-heated when it's cold. My photo is a split plate of steak and potatoes.

It was an awesome night for my girlfriend and I . They food was great , variety was awesome, and the waitress suggest my an awesome wine to try. They only thing I didn't understand was we were the only ones inside the restaurant, and people were coming in being turned away , I know they probably while looking in the restaurant didn't understand why! There was people in outside patio , but didn't seem overly busy?

The salmon was perfectly cooked with an abundance of seasonal roasted vegetables and the sauce nicely complemented the salmon. The star of the meal was the poached pear in pastry dessert which is big enough for two but we had leftovers. Service was erratic and detracted from the meal.

I had not planned on posting an Open Table review on this restaurant until I started to read the management’s angry and dishonest responses to all reviews that are not 5 stars. Our party of five, which included one professional chef, visited this restaurant on a cool, rainy evening. The restaurant was about 1/3 full yet the service we received was scattered and unimpressive. We wanted to sit outside but it was raining (therefore the patio was closed) so we sat inside. The food was average at best and although we received a lot of “I’m sorry” comments from the staff, there was no 20% discount offered. It’s unfortunate when a business owner is unable to accept constructive criticism.

We had a very nice table in the patio, the wait staff was very accommodating in helping choosing a meal to share , the Rack of Lamb was very well prepared and perfect for two. We each had a side salad . The patio is perfect, small venue, quite and easy access for someone on a walker.

This might not be a fair review and reflect usual circumstances. There was a private event on the patio that affected our experience inside. There was one server that we could see and one helper. Our server would disappear for a long time so we assumed she had to cover the party outside as well. There were only about 4 to 5 parties dining inside but owner had to step in to help. Cran cakes were good but potato soup was thick like paste. Menu was limited as well. While we wouldn't go back, the parking lot is full when we drive by so others must enjoy it.
