Frequently Asked Questions
We do not have an official dress code, and we want you to be comfortable here. Many people visiting our restaurant are on vacation and dress accordingly. For the most part, our guests tend to dress business casual.
We changed our format back in the spring of 2020 to an a la carte menu. Now you can reserve a table when you'd like to dine and choose off the menu what you'd like to eat. If you only want an entree, no problem! If you miss our 5 course format, we do offer it as an alternative, which also allows us to offer wine pairings with your meal. We also offer a Chef's Whim option for the culinary adventurous.
Yes! Our plans are to open the Patio for Memorial Day weekend, when the weather is reliably warm. Please be aware that the patio is not covered, so if it is raining, the patio will be closed. Unfortunately, we are not able to guarantee indoor seating in case of rain, so please plan accordingly.
If you'd like to enjoy a beverage on the lawn or in our living room prior to your reservation, please arrive before your reservation time. To accommodate everyone, you will need to be at your table at the time you have reserved it.
This depends on your own preferences! The 5 course is a prix fixe menu, where you have choices for most of your courses with the exception of the Intermezzo. The format allows us to pair wine with your meal, as we know your courses ahead of time. It is something many of our long term guests enjoy as it is reminiscent of our past signature experience. That being said, if you are not sure what you will want when you arrive, stick with the a la carte - our menu was designed to be coursed out!
Our Chef's Whim experience is for the culinary adventurers. It is a 6 course dining experience designed for you personally by our Executive Chef. Please be aware that this meal is created special that night - it is not on the menu. We will ask you for any dietary restrictions when you reserve, but you will not have choices to make as you would with our 5 course menu. This is an opportunity to try something new and exciting, but if you prefer choices, try our a la carte menu!
We are open to both! We love to have our inn guests dine with us, but we are equally happy to see our neighbors, friends, new friends or travelers staying locally. We offer a wonderful, personalized experience we are eager to share with you!
Due to the nature of our restaurant, we are unable to guarantee specific tables. Let us know your needs when you reserve and we will do our best to accommodate you. However, we design the tables each night based on the current reservations to allow everyone to have a nice experience. We do assign tables in the order the reservations are made. Occasionally, due to size, you may be limited to a specific table.
Send your requirements to [email protected] and we will get right back to you! We host events of all shapes and sizes and are happy to speak with you about your needs.

My wife and I enjoyed one of the best meals ever. Every aspect of our even was perfect, including Chef Bryan's soup du jour. With cauliflower as a base, it was the most delicious soup we've ever tasted. Ever. Olivia could not have been a more gracious, friendly, and knowledgeable server. And her cocktail making skills are unparalleled! All in all, a wonderful evening.

The Parker house rolls were not fresh but reheated. The menu is fairly limited but the quality of food high. Very expensive for what it is

Great service but very small portions for what they charge. Even my drink was a light pour.
