What a delight! We toured the Antietam National Battlefield in Maryland, tired but hungry. Followed our Shepherdstown, WV (Thomas Shepherd Inn) innkeeper’s recommendation for dinner. A gourmet delight! Oysters, fiddleheads, halibut, gazpacho, and more. Here is the lemon poppyseed strawberry shortcake dessert. Margie was the...More

I ordered the seafood stew, which was excellent. If you can't decide what kind of seafood you want, choose this - it's got both monkfish and few kinds of shellfish. My husband wasn't as impressed with his pork, which was good but a little on...More

We ate dinner here recently and the food was out of this world. We had steak and chicken dishes and the meat and side items were fantastic. The wait staff were also pleasant and professional. Great place!

Apps were great.. The entrees were good, but "I've had better" and "this side doesn't really compliment the protein" were also uttered. Nonetheless the wine menu was good in taste and fair price. Desserts were outstanding. Good service. Very friendly staff. Nice atmosphere inside, not...More
