I have had several nice dinners here. When I recently had lunch, the corn chowder was delicious and the shrimp on my salad were very fresh. One friend was delighted by his salmon, and the other was happy with her French dip and French fries. Service is always friendly and the food is of good quality.

the worst food and service ever. Don't stop here. If you do you'll be very disappointed. The service was extremely poor. The food was cold, tasted bad and very overpriced

Intimate restaurant set in an old farmhouse, just a bit off the main road. My husband and I have been there several times, always satisfied. Great for special occasion dinners, especially because of the individual attention by staff. The décor is warm and lovely, the drinks are good, the food is great. Prices are a bit high, but much worth... More

Every couple of months we do a girls lunch out at the Gateway Cottage.

We will continue to go there as we always feel welcome and never rushed and... More

This was my first time at this restaurant. Nice cozy atmosphere, great food and service. The staff was very accommodating and flexible to our needs. I had the seafood fettucine which had seafood mixed in it, as usual, but also a very generous serving of salmon on top. Huge serving. Very good.

Great neighbor hood restaurant for the area, been there a lot and never had a bad meal. It is in a old house that is quaint and the food is excellent.

I have the marinated chicken breast with veggies and salad. Because I am eating glute-free where possible, the staff made every effort to accomodate my needs. The meal was delicious! I sat in my favorite spot - a window seat in the former farmhouse which is now a charming respite for hungry diners. I love the ambience and appreciate the... More

This used to be my favorite special treat/romantic place to go. Good food, good atmosphere, good staff. Everything has declined in the last couple years. Food is blah, service ok but not great, and the furniture...needs to be sent to Goodwill. Not a horrible place, just not worth the price they charge.

Atmosphere and setting totally cozy and comfy feeling! The staff is fantastic, the "cottage" offers a great lounge, plus secluded areas to dine with that special someone! Fireplace, furnishings, all provide a wonderful "in home" feeling. The food is very good, a nice variety with daily specials offered. Its a place that you should visit on a special occasion!
