It was fun experiencing Easter brunch at Wise Acre. Kind of like going back to grandma's house. The brunch was served family style and refills were available until we were full (which actually only took one serving). Food was hot, tasty and tasted better knowing the food was grown so close. Getting reservations was easy. Service was good. A bit... More

True farm-to-table because some of the menu comes from their farm. One of the owners gave us a tasting of their organic wines. We loved it and will be back!

Stopped in to a Wise Acre with friends for Sunday breakfast. Very quaint and I'm sure it's amazing when the garage doors are open in warmer weather. Ordered the French toast which was good but a very small portion. It and the fruit came soaking in the maple syrup which made it too sweet for me and Would not order... More

Quaint little spot. The food was very good. I had the pork chop with broccoli. We had a table to the side. It is the only table I would want until summer seating. I do not like sitting too close to other people. Service very responsive.

Owned by the farmer! Wow! 75-95% of food is from the farm. Scottish Highland beef! Nummy! Great staff. Fast service. Friendly staff proud about the good quality food. Will go again!

The initial appeal to us on Open Table was the "Farm to Plate" menu. Turns out, they not only buy local, they grow their own produce and livestock local. Talk about knowing the source of your food. The location is a former gas station/garage with the decor complementing that theme. The garage doors remain in place as does the green... More

This restaurant prides itself on serving food with ingredients from its own farm. That is nice, and in the case of the sausage we received resulted in a very fine flavor. We had asked for our scrambled eggs to be cooked "loose," and mine were cooked that way, while my wife's were not and were overcooked. The vanilla lattes are... More

This place is special with a strong emphasis on 'farm to table' dining. I went with 3 friends, all of whom had the same impression. Service was efficient and exceptional, decor is funky interesting, menu is interesting as well (seafood is under-represented), meals were tasty and at just the right temperature. We had appetizers, dinner, wine, and dessert. Prices were... More

This seems to be a great spot, my friends all rave about the food and like that it is locally sourced. But as a vegetarian I find little that I can eat everything has bacon added. Not a place I would recommend if your vegan or vegetarian.

Stopped here when the place was one of the only places in town for frozen custard. Had an occasion to have lunch with siblings. The tomato and pumpkin soup was outstanding and the Herb laced eggs are a nice treat. Pricing was fair for the new "Farm to Table" restaurant.
