Stopped in for a break from the road and really enjoyed the menu. Everything possible is farm-to-table. We started with an appetizer of pickled vegetables and also boiled peanuts. The salad was so fresh and delicious with house made croutons and carrot shavings. The rabbit...More

My husband and I dropped by Dovetail's bar without reservations early Friday evening. The bar staff obviously has been well trained and guided us to good selections of beer and wine and farm-to-table cuisines. Because we were going on a walking tour, the small plates...More

The food and service were both great after church meal on Sunday but the entrance involves lots of steps. Not really handicap rated or wheel chair.
