During off season check their schedule for opening. This is another great location to choose from while you enjoy Cape Charles. Right on Mason Street.

Everyone we met in Cape Charles said this was the place to go and they were right. Small in size but big on taste. The food (quail appetizer, filet and lamb) were all beautifully presented and cooked perfectly. Dessert was insanely rich pot de creme....More

We came in on a slow Saturday night. Our server was very pleasant and attentive. The meals were beautifully prepared. I think the menu changes frequently, so there is always something new to try. Everyone really enjoyed their meal and the dessert selection was pretty...More

This was the least impressive meal of our vacation....the bread - tasteless, the beef - flavorless, vegetables under cooked and lukewarm... on the plus side, it had cloth napkins. Maybe we caught them on an off night ... regardless we won't be returning.

Great sandwich and seafood chowder. All bread and rolls are handmade. We'll go back when we are back in the area. All food is packaged for takeout but there are tables if you want to eat in.

We went here for dinner and enjoyed it but it wasn't anything special for us. The service was very good but we didn't think it was worth the cost. We probably wouldn't return if in the area as Cape Charles is not really a destination...More
