As often as possible, I love to lunch at Ebenezer's Tavern, a cozy little hide-away filled with Colonial furniture, over-stuffed wing-back chairs, comfort and an amazing menu.

Although the woman who seated us was quite abrupt, our server was great. I have fish sandwich with fries, absolutely delicious. Would like to explore the Inn a bit should we visit again.

On Sunday's they offer a fabulous breakfast buffet. The typical omelets and egg courses but you can also enjoy period food such as Indian pudding. Good food at a good price...$16.95 plus tip.
