Went there for lunch this afternoon with my wife. After waiting to be seated for 5-10 minutes and never seeing a soul we walked out. We ate lunch at a nearby restaurant that was awesome.

Had eaten here several times, many years ago, and really enjoyed it. I was disappointed, this time. The food quality, service, and atmosphere were lacking in many ways. The waitress was impatient and lacked knowledge about the menu items. The food was OK, but I wouldn't travel the distance and pay the prices again.

Two words: Cinnamon Rolls! The family dined here for breakfast/brunch buffet, which was perfectly fine featuring the usual expected fare. The "must have" food here are the cinnamon rolls. Just an incredible amount of cinnamon and sugar packed into each of these rolls makes them worthy of the trip!

While staying at Isaac Jackson hotel we went for an early dinner at the 1863 Grill. Very quaint and had a lot of history. I can't say enough about the friendliness of the staff. Very pleasant and very attentive to us. Kept our drinks refilled without having to be asked. We had an older lady as our waitress and she... More

We had reservations here at 7pm on a Saturday after our Polar Express train ride. The inside of the restaurant was very nice. There were multiple tables that had not been cleared off yet like we had just arrived after a big dinner rush. The staff was nice. The food was just okay. Some of it was cold. We got... More

After reading all the great reviews we were disappointed in the food quality. We arrived for our 7pm reservation and waited about 15 minutes for a table to be cleaned. That was not a problem. The restaurant looked nice and the staff was nice too. Unfortunately for us it had been a busy night and we suffered for it. They... More

I've eaten here many times over the past decade and their most recent renovation, menu update, new chef & dining servers are amazing! I have to give a shout out to Elizabeth (our favorite hostess) and Zach (our favorite server) for making every trip worth going out for! Keep up the good work guys!

Our families ate dinner here before our ride on the Polar Express. No wait, excellent service. All of our meals were so delicious. The brisket and homemade bread were amazing! Reasonable prices with a good variety. Definitely will be back next year!
