It was my daughter’s birthday and when we arrived at the table there was a birthday card on it from Alter House! It was hand written too! In it also said “Enjoy a piece of cake on us” at the bottom. At the end of the evening they came out with a piece of cake with a big sparkler on it. The waiter wished her a ‘Happy Birthday’ when we first got there as well. The card was something I have never seen before and it was SO nice…we were really impressed. The charcuterie board was excellent. My daughter and I got the filet and it was so well cooked that we cut it with our butter knives! My husband got fish and my other daughter and her boyfriend got burgers. Everything was so delicious. Only problem with the restaurant is that it is very loud. Probably due to the high ceilings (??) They have two younger teenagers opening the doors for you. Truly a very nice place.

Beautifully decorated, very romantic. Tables are close together, but patrons the night we went, were very quiet. Menu was limited, but offered enough choice for us find something. Food was delicious and well presented. Service was good, but we were not in a rush. This is a sit back and relax kind of place. Prices were fair for this type of restaurant.
