It is time for a significant restoration of this old building. Traditional furnishings, non soiled and non smelling carpeting, a fresh coat of paint - these could make it an attractive dining environment. Now as for the meal . . . the dinner rolls were quite good. But things went down from there. My wife and I both had steaks.... More

We had a dinner midweek. We were surprised to see several Other parties. Service was okay. Food was fair. Prices above level of expectations.

This up scale dining had delicious food, pleasant atmosphere, and very friendly help. There is a wide variety of menu choices. Have eaten here several times and have not been disappointed.

My wife and I have not been here in many years. That said the décor and Menu have not changed. The vibe is like having Sunday dinner at your spinster aunt a little off putting. The service was good as was our Prime Rib. Overall It seem like the owners have lost interest in the enterprise and it shows ,

We were a little disappointed because we went on a Sat night at 6:00pm for prime rib and they did not have any. The restaurant wasn't even busy. Anyways, we ordered other meals and the food was good. Service was beliw average. Server seemed a bit flustered and mistakes were made.

Went for the fish on family member recommendation. Big mistake! Service was extremely slow, due to lack of staff. As far as I could tell, only one waitress, who was overworked, was on duty. The salads were ok, but the clam chowder was thin and tasteless. The fried fish was mediocre with coating that was not at all crisp. The... More

Food and service for Easter buffet 2016 were sorely below our previous experiences at the Phelps Hotel. Surrounding tables and others in the buffet line were all expressing the same. Besides poor food selection and quality compared to years past and totally lackluster service (no clean plates on buffet, no clean forks on dessert table, stacks of dirty dishes still... More

I've been going here for decades. The steak last night was the best I've had in a long time. The new chef is working out well. I'm a hard grader so I didn't give it 5 star.

husband, adult daughter and I went for a family celebration last evening. place needs a good cleaning. Entrance through the back takes your through a large open empty party room- with filthy and worn carpets. not good initial impression. the main dining room looks very Victorian, and that's likely the last era it was ever really dusted or cleaned. the...
