I had the prime rib and it was delicious. Hubby had meatloaf. Said it was good but "not like mom's". Enjoyed the crab cake appetizer and mushroom soup. Overall very good!

The site of this restaurant originally belonged to a signer of the Declaration of Independence. The food was terrific especially the Haddock. We went back twice during our 8 day stay.
