I'm amazed that tourists miss this gem, set a few blocks off the main street. A handsome brick Inn, it's warm and inviting. The menu changes nightly and has a solid collection of light and fuller-fare choices. Ingredients are combined in fresh and often unexpected ways showing somebody's got some good cheffing experience. The food tastes honest and not from a purveyor. What we especially like is that there are always a number of vegetarian items -- and not just steamed veggies on a plate. There are thoughtful mixes of different ingredients. Portions are good sized. The large round bar has retained its local clientele even after the smoking ban -- a testament to the restaurant's loyalty and authenticity. The summer outdoor flagstone patio, nicely landscaped with hollies, sycamores and impatiens, is one of the best around.
Service, however, can sometimes be spotty and bartenders can seem more interested in socializing with their friends than serving drinks. And, the decor could use some freshening and cleaning, as "comfy" can come too close to "dumpy."
