Delicious as always. And such a welcoming vibe. As a single woman traveling alone, that’s an especially nice touch. I can only say that the portions are toooooo generous. I’d love some little plates. But that’s not really a complaint now is it? I’ll be back again and again. Susan

Our experience was wonderful, food excellent, service superb. Amber, our server, is a true asset. The temperature in the enclosed patio was a touch too cold (left coat on) but they offered radiant heat sources and, unheard of in a covid world, a warm, clean throw! Recommend highly!

Fantastic evening and truly a pleasurable experience. Food was absolutely delicious and service outstanding. Although a busy night, Chef Nino took the time to say hello, and Anthony and the staff were so very welcoming, courteous and friendly. Genuine Sussex County hospitality and a wonderful meal, made for a relaxing night out at a unique and charming venue.

We absolutely loved it here! We camped here for 4 nights, went to the very unique market every morning, and had dinner one night. Our dinner was amazing! We had the dates for our appetizer, something I've never had but could probably eat it every day now! Our dinners were the scallops and crabcakes both were delicious! I loved my cocktails and my husband loved the beer selection! The service was also amazing! We loved it here and can't wait to come back!

Creative farm-to-table dining experience with a lovely outdoor patio makes this a special treat. Wonderful healthy, vegetarian, and gluten-free options are not a side thought in the menu. Do samples the charred dates, freshly made soups, and don’t forget dessert! Shop in the well-stocked market to take home your healthy options and creative spices. Just a special treat that makes you smile?
