On October 1st I surprised my wife with a birthday dinner with 20 of her relatives and friends. Everyone ordered from the menu. Not only did they bring everyone their dinners at the same time but everyone loved their dinners. Selections ranged from chicken dishes to steak to crab cakes, etc. The owner, Russ, went out of his way to... More

Good service from Alessia, and the she crab soup was nice, but otherwise the entrees were a let down. I had crab cakes and i have definitely had better (being from the North and having traveled around NY, NJ, MA and CT). My mother had tequilla lime salmon and the salmon was overcooked (actually burnt on one side). Asparagus side... More

Our family has eaten here for a few years and each time the owner, Russ, comes by our table to visit. His menu is dependably good, the atmosphere is quiet and comfortable, and the staff is friendly and attentive. Brunch, lunch, and dinner are always great - and we've enjoyed dining on the patio in season. Go visit this hidden... More

The service was slow, that we could handle. The food however was worse than the service. 3 of us ordered the Ribeye Sandwich that was to come with onions,mushrooms, and provolone on a baget. The baget was inedible and what was inside was like beef stroganoff. A few pieces of meat, a few mushroom and onions- no cheese, and lots... More

Made a reservation as it was Friday night but didn't need one. The place was very slow. Only 6 other people ate while we were there, 630-1000pm. Christopher was very attentive and knowledgeable about the food. The wine choices are limited and most of the food offered is not on the menu. Our party of 4 had steak, nicely prepared,... More

The food here is amazing! Russ always welcomes us here and will even customize a menu for your private events! As far as what to choose I would recommend the Steak! You won't be disappointed. Very nice and welcoming restaurant in Old Town Petersburg whether you're looking for dinner, or just a few drinks.

Stopped here for lunch and was glad we were NOT in a hurry. All the furnishings and the building were old and funky but the food was good!

Stopped in on a whim. What fun! The decor is a fusion of Victoria drawing room and library/museum in an old gas station. The food was good. Staff was attentive. I'd love to go back in the evening. It looks like a place for good conversation over good food.

If you are in the mood for some exquisite specialty seafood dishes, this is the place. The food was delicious with generous portions. Make sure to order the crostini appetizer and definitely leave room for dessert. Very friendly and a nice cozy small establishment. Well worth the experience.
