Good food but overpriced wine and food. Huge wine selection only a few menu items and the fries are from the frozen bag.

We decided to stop in at Charmers for dinner after an art show on Saturday night. It's a small-ish place, but had 4 inside and 2 outside tables open. The hostess wanted us to sit outside, when told we prefer inside she asked if we had a reservation. She grudgingly sat us inside with menus, didn't ask if we wanted anything to drink and walked away. It seemed that they had adequate wait staff, however neither of the two times a waiter came and spoke to tables on each side of us were we even acknowledged. After five minutes of being ignored we finally got up and left. As we approached the door, the waiter said he was coming over with water. We told him we were leaving, he responded with oh well. A shame - the menu had some interesting sounding dishes. Have had similar experience at this same location under a different name a couple of years ago. We won't bother trying again.

You'd be forgiven if you missed this location, but once you'd been there, you'll be kicking yourself for ever doubting it. The food is great, and the atmosphere is both comforting and spartan, giving it a professional look. The food is often unique and local takes of traditional fare, with a few specialities thrown in for kicks.

The Prime Rib is THE BEST around. Atmosphere is a delight, especially due to the great staff that are their to help you enjoy an eating experience. Food is great. Location is great. Large wine selection as well as other spirits. Summers there is outdoor seating. Amazing.

Great food, great people and a comfortable place to go. The Crab Cakes were at the top of my list of great food.
