This restaurant has a roadside bar appearance on the exterior, but a very rustic, subdued elegance, white table cloth ambience inside. Apparently this was an old C&O railroad employee room and boarding house. We ate in the cozy lower bar dining area. The music was an interesting eclectic mix, but was a little loud for my taste and became tiring as the night proceeded. The food was very good and the presentation attractive. We enjoyed a bibb lettuce salad with shaved gruyere and pommery mustard dressing. My wife had a delicious appetizer for her entree, the roasted scallops with vegetable provencal and parmigiano sauce. The scallops were done perfectly and were adequate for a smaller appetite. I had the yellowfin tuna with local mushrooms, port-sherry sauce and potato agnolotti, together with an order of brussels sprouts, capers and shallots. The tuna was fresh, done as ordered and flavorful. The brussel sprouts were tender. The C&O has a good wine list and the service was acceptable, if not impressive. An enjoyable evening.
