Dined here on 12/8/18 with my wife and her sister and brother-in law, early on a Saturday night. The reception and attention by our server, Sue, was over the top. She was excellent in every way, knowledgeable, helpful, attentive, and professional. The restaurant is very...More

This is an Americana menu prepared with fresh ingredients. All eight of us had great service and loved the food. The appetizers of hot stuffed banana peppers, meat balls, and cauliflower pancake were amazing. The entrees of braised boneless short ribs were a hit. Try...More

At the server’s recommendation I had the veal piccata and it was one of the best versions of this classic I have ever had with a thick lemon sauce with capers, mashed potatoes, and string beans. Desert did not live up to the same level...More

Cute, quaint restaurant in Gates Mills. Seems like the only restaurant in tiny, old town. Very historic and charming. Happy hour upstairs in bar was great! Lots of food choices for good prices. Drinks still pretty pricey. No draft beer. Only bottles.

Love the ambiance and the food here. We enjoy sitting on the patio in the summer, but space is limited, so better to go early. Service is consistently good. Especially recommend Freddy's Pasta, Greens & Beans, and any of their Specials.
