I wish I had taken the time to read the reviews here and yelp before going, but certainly not disappointed, it would've given me the education I needed when opening the menus. We went for our Anniversary and got there before the Sat. evening rush, the parking lot was empty as was the lovely old house. My DH had come apx. 15 years prior and was happy to have me finally join him. We sat in one of the many smallish rooms (nice for atmosphere and to keep the sound down), but nothing extra (the candles were not lit, the tables were plainly decorated, nothing extraordinary.
I started out with the hard berry cider and was pleased, not too sweet or sour. Enjoyable. The iced tea was strong and bottomless. We began with their (apparently renown - and worth it!) bowl of DELICIOUS hungarian mushroom soup with a salad and a slice of their in-house bread (a bit stale and boring bread if you ask me). He ordered the halibut fish and chips - the halibut seemed like a flash-frozen and heated, nothing special. I ordered the Avocado Burger ($11) with a side of the (never tasted ANYTHING so yummy) Garlic Parmesan fries. I also received some Kettle-Type Chips on the side - ended up taking 1/2 of everything home and reheated the next day for leftovers and we were amazed! If I knew they would be this good, I would have brought an entire order home.
Critiques: 1) We were sure glad to come early, but there were a lot of times when the waitresses didn't bring my empty water/tea refills, we were ready to order 10 minutes before she came back! The bread (roll and hamburger bun) seemed old. 2.) Even after telling them it was our Anniversary, nothing special was added (candles? a treat to take home?) 3.) It took three people to finally give me the brief history on this sweet old farm house. This gal only briefed me, it would be nice to see a laminated write up at the tables or in each room. 4.) Apparently the desserts are made daily from scratch. I guess it would be nice to know which of the items on the menu are made in house (* or something). 5.) Definitely pay attention to the portion size. The price definitely reflects a shared plate, otherwise, most normal appetites can prob. only stomach 1/2. 6.) There needs some music for the ambiance and a little more attention to the details and this restaurant could be 5 stars.
