Their home made creamy of crab soup is delicious! It has a good amount of crab meat. I was so satisfied with that soup and a goat cheese & arugula pizza. The restaurant is almost 200 yrs old and was a civil war hospital.

Went to eat at this restaurant because of the great reviews I read. We were very disappointed. The pizza didn’t look anything like the picture. Not crispy, it was on the soggy side. I will say that the cream of crab soup was delicious!

Mice....Saw 3 in thirty minutes. Mice were not shy. Scurrying under diners tables. Bad sign. Informed our waitress but she was well aware and apologetic. Will never return to this place.

My husband has life threatening peanut and tree nut allergies and safely ate here. I think if you stick to pizza, there is less risk. That is what he did. It is always a risk eating out with allergies, which stinks.
