Our Story

The Great Room is warm, personal and comfortable with residential furnishings that make every visitor feel like a guest in a comfortable private home.


Traditional dining  and communal tables are nearby leather couches and armchairs, counter seating at our 'kitchen counter', and bar height tables. We also have a Barn Room with a variety of seating areas, a massive picnic table, fountains, and hydroponic growing systems.


Our food is above all Authentic. We serve the classics like French Steak Frites, Classic Shrimp Cocktail, Maryland Crab Cakes, Manchester Fish and Chips, Philadelphia Cheese Steaks, Southern Fried Chicken and Brooklyn Pizza.


We passionately strive for Authenticity.


We have an extensive on-tap "Brew Ridge Trail" beer program featuring up to 20 regionally brewed beers, ciders and fresh craft root beer.


We also have an extensive cocktail program and stellar but approachable cellar of wines.


Service is straightforward, and friendly - no pretense - you are in our home and among friends.
