Dean's is located in a small shopping center near the hospital and medical buildings. The Oakridge playhouse is in same plaza. It would be a good place to eat before the show, if at the hospital or if you are in town. We went there...More

Great waiter and quick service. Bread was warm and delicious. Dined for dinner and we both chose the chicken pot pie as it is a cold, rainy afternoon. Arrived very quickly, but it was mediocre, at best. Served in individual ramekins with puff pastry on...More

We are located in historic Jackson Square. This property once housed Jackson Square pharmacy. After 55 years in the same family this property became available because the previous owners wished to retire. We were lucky to get it. We renovated and tried to keep as much of the original charm as possible. We hope you like it.
