This is a rather strange place. We were the only diners in the rather spartan main dining room on a Saturday night. However, we had a rather good mealand although there was no 'atmosphere' it made a pleasant change to eat in a peacful and (very) quiet restaurant and it was a very personal experience. The waitress was charming and we had an interesting chat with her. The kitchen did sound busy (to say we were the only diners all evening) and people were coming down from the upper floors so maybe there were other less formal eating areas eleswhere?

Food was excellent and waitress was very helpful. Easy to find, just a short walk from almost everywhere in town.

Went for the early bird special. The choice was very expansive, the price very reasonable. The Fennel Tomato soup was excellent. The Salmon was very good, the baked oysters were excellent and the crab cake was very good. We were in a large square room with 12 foot ceiling. The home had to be 150 years old and made you feel like you were in a pre-civil war home, (because you were.) Location was in the historic district. Parking was amble.

The service was excellent.

I wasn't a fan of my meal, that is what happens I guess when you try something different. The food is extremely expensive! On a positive note the service was great!

Went tonight and had a wonderful meal in one of their 1st floor rooms. Lamb fell off the bone- it was so tender and the lobster on risotto was fabulous! Claudia, our waitress, gave us information about New Bern which was helpful! Definitely recommend this place!
