I have been to Dean's restaurant several times, and each time has been a little worse than the last. I have given them a chance and tried something different each time I went. And was disappointed in the quality of the food each time. Today...More

From their baked goods to their daily specials- you can't miss with this fantastic restaurant. The grilled corn is amazing, their BBQ and turkey & dressing are not to be missed! Not a bad meal ever and I dine here weekly.

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.
