My fiance and I put a bid on a house in a neighboring town and were starved for dinner. Driving through Jonesville, we spotted Rosalie's and decided to stop. I immediately loved the look of the very-old-house-turned-restaurant and couldn't wait to check it out, as ambiance is really important to me when eating out.
It was a beautiful evening, about 7pm, and we decided to eat in the pretty outside eating area - a brick patio that takes up one side of the house and is adorned with greenery and flower boxes. Walking through the inside of the "house" to get to the patio, I noticed how unique it was, with a bar area, tables, and wood floors, along with a staircase that went to the second floor (I'm thinking the owners live upstairs, but not certain). It was very comfortable-feeling, both inside and out.
The menu isn't extensive, but enough variety to choose from, and they had a few daily specials that were described to us. My fiance had the lasagna, one of the house specialties on the menu. I had one of the daily specials - chicken pesto quesadilla.
We both ordered the Long Island Iced Tea, which was highlighted on the menu as a house speciality. When it came, in a HUGE mug, I was shocked! The alcohol content was obviously less than the very strong cocktails I have had at other places in the past, but it was really tasty and refreshing - and there definitely was some alcohol in it! I couldn't even finish the entire drink.
The food came fairly quickly and was tasty and the portions were good. Many things are homemade, like the French dressing on my fiance's side salad, which he said was good. The food definitely filled us up (my fiance is 6'5" so if it fills HIM up, you know they give you enough!). The service was good, also. If we end up moving, I think this restaurant will become a regular place for us to eat (there's also not much else in the area, so thank goodness Rosalie's is here).
Overall, we had a relaxing, enjoyable dinner in a very unique dining establishment. I would definitely come here again!
