We went here for a Mother's Day dinner. The carder salad was exceptional, as was the beef. The crab tower was 4 star, but all the rest perfect. Good cocktails and a good choice of wine by the glass. It is one of our favorite occasion restaurants.

What a gem. Everything was fabulous. Food, wine, location. Had a steak done exactly as I asked for and was so tender it melted in my mouth. Soup was great and desert after a walk around the gardens with wine and camera in hands was the icing on the cake. Highly recommended.

What a hidden gem. We had breakfast in the outdoor garden. So pretty with lots of flowers and trees surrounding you. Lots of antiques and art to look at too. Wonderful, locally sourced ingredients. Started with blueberry coffeecake and the sweetest fruit plate. Then had a local sausage sampler with an omelette fit for 2. So worth the drive if... More

I was taken aback when we arrived for a dinner reservation 10 minutes late and the restaurant owner greeted us at the door, "May I help you?" When I told him we had 5:30 dinner reservations, he snapped back "and what time is it now?" I was equally shocked that the least expensive meal was $32 before drinks, tip, tax,... More

Our third visit to this little gem and it was as great as expected. God food, unique menu and fresh garden vegetables made the meal.

I am not one to gratuitously hand out a five star review, but this place was stellar. We began our meal with a roasted beet and blue cheese salad with a generous portion of gorgeous back bacon. We were served warm crusty rolls to go with and the vinaigrette was just right. The salad was not over dressed, but all... More

The last time I dined here was 1999. I returned in July 2015. Precious little has changed but that the gardens are more lush. Sam's cooking remains....astounding. I am a retired Navy officer. When I left my Executive Officer position at Naval computer Station, Puget Sound (I was more brief, but that was tagged as profanity....) from Washington I chose... More

We joined friends for dinner in the garden of Molly Ward Gardens. The fresh chicken vegetable soup was home made in quality. I had the crab tower which is a large serving of hot, shelled crab with sides of asparagus and fried potatoes. A fruit cobbler with ice cream was the perfect dessert. Highly he service was excellent recommended. T

I made reservations for lunch for my hubby's birthday. What a delightful lunch. The halibut was fresh and delicious. The sauce over the halibut was so good but not overpowering. The rest of the meal was equally fresh and delicious. Of course the dessert - Crème Bulee was creamy and oh so good! The Molly Ward Gardens is known for... More
