I dine at this establishment often. Never have I been disappointed. Rich and Mary run this place right! The food is top notch and there is something available for everyone; this is my favorite go-to restaurant when bringing guests out to eat. A beautiful ride along the Delaware and then the friendly and reasonably priced meal. Well done!!

After cruising Route 97 and the Hawks Nest, we stopped in for dinner. You can choose either indoor or outdoor seating. The place was spotlessly clean, the wait staff friendly, and there was a relaxed and casual atmosphere. The wait staff was knowledgeable and answered our questions on the different sauces that were available. We would eat there again if we are ever in that area.

My husband and I have spent plenty of money at this restaurant since last year but were treated terribly by the woman that identified herself as "the owner". We waited close to an hour for our entrees. Every time we inquired about our order, we were told it would be out in a minute. " the owner " was rude and never apologized.

There's many factors involved in rating a restaurant. Good food, decor, serve & variety of menu.
When this opened we went 3 weeks later. Pleasant decor - trendy for the area. We have a vacation house up here, so restaurants are always welcomed. We ordered Reuben sandwiches.it took over 1 hour to get food. We figured they were new. The following year we returned. This time we sat at the bar and ordered sandwiches. Again, we waited over an hour for the food. This is not fine dinning. Service is slow.....go somewhere else.

Dear xxxtraveltoday
I totally agree with your service rating but not how you went about your rating process. You failed to note it was a very busy night with a long waiting list for tables so you opted to sit at the end of the bar and also you were not aware we had a large takeout order of 24 dinners. You were seated at the end of the bar and after I was made aware of the situation that you had waited a long time I directed my wife to comp. your sandwiches only to find out you had departed the premisses. I feel we owe you a free dinning experience but also feel you should tell the management or owners of your displeasure before broadcasting on the internet. Sometimes poor service and long wait times are unavoidable which the establishment has to address only to improve their service procedures. Thanks for you input and please feel free to introduce yourself if you decide to return so we can make up for our mistakes.
