I was taken aback when we arrived for a dinner reservation 10 minutes late and the restaurant owner greeted us at the door, "May I help you?" When I told him we had 5:30 dinner reservations, he snapped back "and what time is it now?" I was equally shocked that the least expensive meal was $32 before drinks, tip, tax,... More

I am not one to gratuitously hand out a five star review, but this place was stellar. We began our meal with a roasted beet and blue cheese salad with a generous portion of gorgeous back bacon. We were served warm crusty rolls to go with and the vinaigrette was just right. The salad was not over dressed, but all... More

The last time I dined here was 1999. I returned in July 2015. Precious little has changed but that the gardens are more lush. Sam's cooking remains....astounding. I am a retired Navy officer. When I left my Executive Officer position at Naval computer Station, Puget Sound (I was more brief, but that was tagged as profanity....) from Washington I chose... More

We joined friends for dinner in the garden of Molly Ward Gardens. The fresh chicken vegetable soup was home made in quality. I had the crab tower which is a large serving of hot, shelled crab with sides of asparagus and fried potatoes. A fruit cobbler with ice cream was the perfect dessert. Highly he service was excellent recommended. T

I made reservations for lunch for my hubby's birthday. What a delightful lunch. The halibut was fresh and delicious. The sauce over the halibut was so good but not overpowering. The rest of the meal was equally fresh and delicious. Of course the dessert - Crème Bulee was creamy and oh so good! The Molly Ward Gardens is known for... More

If you're looking for something different, go here. You WON'T be disappointed!! The menu is written DAILY on a chalkboard. The owner/chef comes up with some great ideas. Plan ahead, reservations are ALWAYS recommended (hint: there's a reason).

MWG has converted a barn into a wonderful, unique dining experience. The menu, while limited, brought to you on a 6' chalkboard will offer something for everyone. Each dish is prepared just for you, nothing mass produced here. Nice selection of wines to pair with your dinner choice. A little pricy but well worth it. One of my favorite dinner... More
