It was not a great day but perfect for lunch in this historic Inn. They have a dining room but we chose to eat at a high table in the bar, it was perfect we could see the whole restaurant. Our server was also the bartender, he was very helpful with our menu questions.(also makes a really good Manhatten).

We have been a regular of this restaurant for many years and are very happy about the re-opening. Welcome back the great food, service,bar and value. Only drawback is the need for Friday night valet parking (I don't let anyone else drive my vehicle) which is necessary despite their large lot and seating capacity. No problem for us as local...

This is our first time here since the redo. The service was excellent and friendly. The drinks were good and strong. The bar food that we ordered was good. Food was served hot and fast. It was a good meal. We are local and would return in the future.

Went for the Mothers day Brunch. The menu was limited, but what we had was very good! Price is very reasonable, atmosphere was quiet possibly even romantic at night, decor is "Historic Tavern". We've been here before it closed/re-opened and it was good, but just a little worn ... looks like it's had some TLC and looks clean and polished... More

So noisy that we could not carry on a conversation at all. Even the server could not hear us. Painful. I ordered the red snapper special and it was like fish jerky. And to top it off, the valet parkers had moved my seat and steering wheel way out of normal. I am not so short they would have to... More

In all fairness, I was just recently here for drinks and a light appetizer, and also a bit of curiosity. After having been closed for quite a while, I wanted to see what had been done to the place. Visually, I think they did a really nice job with the renovations. The appetizer I had was fine, but pretty standard... More

On a Friday night, we were seated right away and give menus. The menus had good selections and a good drink selection. Had time to read the entire menu while people were seated around us. They got waters and drinks while we sat unattended. After 20 min of no one speaking to us, or even coming close enough to ask... More

We stopped here Saturday night for dinner, table for 7. We were seated downstairs which was fine, but it was way too loud in there, we could barely converse with each other. The food was ok, it tasted great but some of us had over cooked meals. The portions were pretty small too. The valet parking was totally unnecessary and... More
