Butternut squash soup, half sandwich with a very tasty mustard, and a small side salad that was wonderful, with amazing maple balsamic dressing made in house. Delicious.

Whether you like seafood, meat or are a vegetarian, you will not be disappointed. This establishment knows how to prepare consistently delicious combinations. You may have to wait because they do not take reservations. I highly recommend it. August 2016

We were so happy to find this restaurant. This would be a fabulous restaurant in a large city, what an exceptional find in a small town. The food was excellent, freshly prepared, large portions.

This place when it was first built was a good place to go into, now after a while went back into black spoon they became more over priced, and after what little food I gotten, didn't feel so well after it.

Made a point of visiting this restaurant as we had heard good reports. Good choice, as the food really is amazing. Quite a small restaurant but cozy. Good food, good wine. Really enjoyed it.

After the Lobster pound we were looking for a similar experience and were not disappointed. Although not as personal the food was spot on, delicious, hot, tasty and served by lovely friendly people.
