Very reasonably priced. We each had salads and split a bottle of wine. Food was great. Service was efficient. They were very busy, but servers and kitchen had their acts together. Food served to others looked good. Would definitely recommend!

We visited after the Veterans Day parade and waited about 15 minutes to be seated. The historic building has housed businesses (mostly dry goods) since 1865, so the vintage atmosphere is authentic. Our service was attentive and snappy. The daily beer special was a 10...More
