The food is very good here. However, the expectations were so high for the crab cakes that it was impossible to meet. There was a generous portion of crab meat for the crab cake. The staff was friendly and all of the food was good. I just felt for what I paid I expected even more. I actually liked the... More

We were invited here for a 70th Anniversary. I never knew this place existed. The food was fabulous. We had chicken, roast beef, and ham, everything was very hot prepared for a banquet style meal. I would recommend this place to eat and want to come back, even if it is an hr and 1/2 drive for us. Very good... More

This is a huge farm house turned into a country style restaurant. Beautiful ponds and scenery and ducks and geese. They have a downstairs for special events and groups. Upstairs in the main dining room are huge windows to look out as you eat. The food is served at your table but family style with all types of side dishes... More

Did not live up to the hype. Went their to try the crabcakes after hearing so much about them. Pretty place but kind of like eating in a school lunch cafe as far as decor goes. Crabcakes were full of lump, but had no consistency. Was very loose on the plate, and just didn't have the right seasoning. French fries... More

Atmosphere was as expected.The waitress was very attentive. It has been a few years since we were here but the restaurant was the same. The gift shop had very little merchandise compared to what it used to have. We had a large group so we were able to make a reservation. This also means you pay the tip whe you... More

Oysters always great . People super nice. Wish they would be more affordable and serve some adult beverages. I think they have the hardest working waitresses I have ever seen.

Try the Fried Chicken! We drive from Havre de Grace, MD quite often because of the great food. We also purchase available baked good to take home. Never been disappointed. As a matter of fact, you will find us there Saturday, February 18th. The Name"Friendly" is right on target. Pleasant servers, great views and we enjoy the drive.

This is a great place to go anytime. You can always count on plenty of homemade food and, as the name implies, friendly service. Every few years we’ll even go here for Thanksgiving or Christmas with friends and have never been disappointed, although it is s bit more crowded then.
