This place was majestic! Set in a picturesque locale, and an 1800s farmhouse! If that wasn't enough, the food was spectacular. Make a reservation and go in the evening to watch the sunset, dine outside. You will not be disappointed.

My wife and I have gone to the 1820 house several times and the food has always been great. Sometimes there could be a wait for the food but keep in mind this place has a very small kitchen and all the food is prepared...More

I read that they have a fantastic view. Wanted to go for just cocktails on the deck, but they are only open certain days and limited to dinner only. Definitely need a reservation for dinner- make sure to call a day or two in advance,...More
