Service was great but the food was just OK. Crab cakes were mostly filler and chicken dish was bland. Better options in Harpers Ferry.

A group of friends and I came here for a birthday by the recommendation of one friend. I was unsure of it initially but being here was honestly one of the best experiences I've had in years! The atmosphere was great and my friends and I had an absolute blast.

The kitchen was so slow (they were busy - and the servers tried to help us out when we were time-crunched). The food was ok, but nothing special. I wanted to like it, but I would... More

We had a large group -- 50 people -- for a family gathering. We had planned everything in advance. Planning, of course, is one thing; execution another. In every sense, the restaurant executed perfectly. The food was delicious. People have raved about the crab cakes on this site. They are right.
