We had a wonderful birthday celebration at Restaurant X last night. We had a lovely table by the window, our server was lovely and very attentive. Our food was all spectacular (salmon, cod, lobster corn chowder, lobster casserole, caesar salad, ceviche, porterhouse, beef wellington, geneovese pesto pasta dish, carrot cake as divine! lemon tart, chocolate bomb). Highly recommend!

We have been to X many times but this was our first time for Sunday Brunch and it did not disappoint. Food was excellent and the cost was in-line with what you get. The food coming out seemed a bit rushed but expected for a brunch.

Having enjoyed many dinners at X in the past, we joined friends for the Prix Fix lunch on Friday. Not many diners but menu and service were fine and the meal was superior in every way. Yes, the facilities are a bit worn, but very clean and food is always well prepared and nicely presented.

It was wonderful to be back at X since the pandemic. Brunch is different now but still delicious. The mushroom ravioli is the greatest dish ever. We also ordered the special sirloin which was cooked to perfection.

Place appears as a “down on her heels dowager”, dead flowers on table, windows cracked, walls cracked , front lawn unmowed, very, very sad to see, dinner ok but expensive given ambiance. Would not recommend.

The service was efficient and friendly, the place beautiful but could use some updating but since it's for sale, that's unrealistic. I can't say enough about the quality, presentation and taste of the food. I went for Sunday Brunch and all of the courses were amazing. Nothing disappointed. The staff, and of course chef Peter Kelly should be complimented.

After months of fear of the pandemic and social distancing, we began to feel comfortable as we dined at your restaurant. Like last time, we enjoyed our food and your staff gave us good service and maintained their professional standards. We will be back soon.

Dinner was very good. There was a table of four people near us who were very loud. When they left, there was a BIG improvement in the atmosphere

I don’t like the forced valet parking. It is something we don’t need. We are not old and unable to walk 50 yards

The food was delicious! We were a party of 7 and everyone enjoyed their dishes, even the children! And the desserts were unmatched in taste and presentation... baked Alaska, caramel flan, chocolate opera cake, pistachio pyramid, and lemon sabayon were all shared and thoroughly enjoyed by all. Sincere thanks for very special milestone-birthday dinner!

This Restaurant is a fossil of it's prior self. I thought I was eating on a set of the Munsters. Cobwebs (yes... on the walls and ceilings) cryptic comedy and mold propagating on the AC ducts failed to compliment the food. Which was of very good quality and preparation after it finally got to the table. The quality of the food is completely overwhelmed by the morose ambiance. A simple cleaning, can of paint or two, windex and some new carpeting (don't plan on even using the bathroom bc certainly Spot owns that territory and has trashed it completely) can work wonders inside. Outside however gives the appearance of the Boars Nest in a jungle setting - scary.

Ignoring the simple and failing to address the inexplicalbe makes this spot a must avoid... despite the very good food.

Came here to celebrate my sister's birthday. We wanted someplace special and Restaurant X is right in her town, so this was perfect. My wife and I have been to other 'X' restaurants and always enjoyed Peter Kelly's cuisine.
We started off apps of Caesar salad, chicken liver mousseline and the lobster shrimp casserole. Diving right back into 'normal dining' we all shared a little of these terrific appetizers, nice portions and all so tasty. The chicken liver mousseline in particular was a really nice portion. I could almost have finished it and gotten up very satisfied. Almost. But this was a special dinner, so I 'toughed it out'.
My wife ordered the softshell crab with potatoes and mixed veggies. The crabs were wonderful with a delicious sauce, the potatoes and veggies were 'good'... but nothing special.
My dish, the pork chops with spaetzli and cherry peppers on the other hand was amazing, maybe the best pork chop I've ever had. I've had Mangalitsa and Berkshire pork chops before, also quite excellent, but this Ossabaw chop was literally 'melt in your mouth' amazing. The sauce (butter) had some chopped cherry peppers that gave it just the right amount of 'bite' that I like. The spaetzli, while not the spaetzli that I make at home (2-3 types of cheese and caramelize onions) was still very good. Served with some crunchy snow peas, this was a perfect meal.
My sister the birthday girl, started with a very tasty Caesar salad and then ordered the Beef Wellington. Beautifully presented and perfectly cooked (medium rare) she too enjoyed this birthday dish very much.
Our waitress Marybeth was courteous and prompt, even entertaining and fun, so 'thanks' Marybeth!"
I see some people have criticized the décor and upkeep of Restaurant X. I can't say I completely disagree, but this is an old house. I very much liked the place. I don't know about everyone else, but when I go to a restaurant, I go for the food and in this case, Restaurant X hit a home run!
Thank you Peter K

Another successful visit! Scrumptious food and great atmosphere. This was a bridesmaids brunch and everyone was so pleased. The only comment is that the waiter assistant (it was a younger boy) seemed to have been new and was having a hard time keeping up with some questions and requests. However, the waitress was attentive and even helped our group take some amazing pictures. She’s a pro!
