  • Never got a chance to eat, the wait was 2 hours this past Sunday. I mean really, is it that good? I strongly suggest arriving on Sunday before church or noon whichever comes first. Hear it;s good food...  more »
  • Our son took us there for a special treat and and out door dinning experience. The food is excellent and location is great, right on the river. You can dine inside if weather is not cooperating.  more »

  • We stumbled upon this little gem when out for a walk with our management team. The food was incredible, the setting was beautiful and well maintained, the service was top notch and I can think of no better place to enjoy an quiet breakfast. The bread products were the best I have ever had. The waffles were light and fluffy. The cinnamon buns ..... words cannot describe. Eat here if you are have the chance you will not be disappointed.
  • Wonderful meal catching up with a good friend. Lovely setting and great service. Menu is meat, fowl and seafood heavy so left the Vegetarian boyfriend at home! Loved the experience and will go back soon!
  • Worth the wait and hey its not something you do everyday. I get it sometimes you just want to eat, this is a time you want an experience with your meal. You get nostalgia at a not expensive price. We have gone about four times but plan on being there a while especially if more tourist are in town for a special event. They seem to have google. We've had a hour and a half wait times before getting seated at busy times. Prices are reasonable though and they have areas such as the gift shop and other parts of the interior building and exterior grounds to keep entertained.
  • The food here is very limited on choices, therefore the menu is small. But, much like most reviews the food was amazing! Coffee, atmosphere, service, originality, difference, and much more reasons play a part here to give this place a shot for visiting! The old house is an awesome museum to take a peek at. I definitely recommend it.
  • It's a good place for a breakfast or brunch. They don't accept reservation. It's a first come first serve. So I won't recommend going there hungry. You may have to wait for 45 minutes to get seating. Nice thing about this place is the area is nice.
