Great food. Great value.this restaurant is a very good place for lunch or dinner. I have found the food to be consistently tasty. Service is also excellent. To go upstairs to see the memorabilia in the old school house is a great trip to the past.

The food excellent. For the money, you'd expect glitz and glamour, but this place is simply fun and comfortable. Situated on the ground floor of the old school house, the playhouse is above, the restaurant is wonderful. Full bar, extensive menu, and the service is always terrific. You will be very pleased.

Took my wife for Valentine's Day dinner and the meal was excellent as was the service. Great atmosphere too. Not too stuffy with just the right amount of special to ensure our experience was exceptional. We will be back and I will order the crab cakes again!!

Nothing terribly wrong or offensive about this place, but everything tasted and looked like it was from a frozen dinner. Uninspired and forgettable.

Had a delicious meal and wonderful service. The staff was courteous and prompt from start to finish. The menu had a variety to chose from and the food was tasty. The atmosphere was great for a date night or girls night out.

Thank Leslie H
