Made reservations and even traded a few emails with Chef Kev. The historic home was a great start to our dining. It added to the experience. Everything that we ate was excellent and well prepared. It is reasonably priced as well.

Thoroughly enjoyed our meal after a visit to Harper's Ferry. We ordered (1) Mixed Grille and (2) Red Fish Pontchartrain (w/ crawfish ettouffe). Great. Ended with a HUGE piece of chocolate cake. Glad we came.

I don't recall as I was not looking for that type of food. Chef Kev is the best, in sure if you email him he can answer any questions.
