What a waste of my holiday! Tiny portions of over priced cold food that was nothing more than cafeteria quality. The pumpkin and tomato soup tasted the same. Even the waitress could not tell the difference. Even the way over priced alcoholic drink I ordered...More

The decor was okay but then again it is so dark in there you can't see well. The food was edible but not worth the price and tasted like it was store bought not prepared there. I would not waste my money again especially since...More

This place was on my bucket list to visit, and while I loved the house and grounds they are in bad shape. Paint needed everywhere, cleaning inside and out, general maintenance severely lacking. Food was pretty much frozen or packaged. Nothing outstanding at all and...More

Wow, not sure where to begin. Had read the negative reviews and feedback from others but figured we would give it a try for the Halloween Mystery dinner. At $60/person the result was ALL TRICK/NO TREAT. Service was terrible. A good 15 minutes before we...More

This restaurant is a local staple. Hear people as far and wide wanting to come down to try it. My question is, why??? This place may have been something else back in the day but certainly not so today. The house is run down and...More
