The food here is out of this world. The best part is the patio, it is large and one of the best outdoor venues in the area. Their charcuterie board is the best I have had to date. Wonderful place.

My wife and I had a wonderful lunch here. The food was very good. The only thing I was not happy with was their license is not for liquor it's only for beer which I love but I also like an Absolute before my dinner.

So I read on Trip Advisor that the cheese fondue was "to die for." I disagree. The cheese fondue is more like a biscuit gravy than a good cheese fondue. I was especially disappointed with the little lumps of flour in it. It was certainly...More

We got a triple crown win on our recent visit- great food, service, and atmosphere! We visited on the Saturday before Easter (when Villanova was playing) at around 8pm, so we were seated immediately. The place has a rustic, historic, cozy feel to it. We...More
