Great food and outstanding service. We went on Oct 31, and they do not take reservations in Oct, so the wait was an hour and 30 minutes. It was worth it. I have NEVER said that about any restaurant with a wait! I had the...More

Great food and wonderful very special tea. Staff shortage caused delays of over an hour. We still very much enjoyed our visit there. My lobster pie was filled with delicious claw meat and far more lobster than one might expect. Others enjoyed Bison Burgers stuffed...More

The trolley does pass in front of the Wild Plum. I'm sure the driver would stop and let people off. Not sure exactly where a pick-up stop is, but the trolley driver would be able to help with schedules and times.
