The towering willow that gave the Willowtree Inn its name still stands over the outdoor patio, where the institution's staff has been serving comfort-food classics for more than 25 years. Inside the kitchen, the cooks prepare offerings from an eclectic menu spanning everything from burgers to chicken marsala. For private events, they go above and beyond by recreating dishes from the hosts' family recipes. On Thursdays and Fridays, the tunes of live entertainment permeate the dining room.
Shula’s Steak House is the classic American, fine dining steak house. Our restaurant is themed after 1972's Undefeated Miami Dolphins and showcases their "Perfect Season" - the only team in NFL history to finish a season 17 - 0.
In 1772, soldier, scholar, and businessman Andrew McMinn saw the need for a way station for travelers, so he opened his home to those with coin. The building served as a base for General Francis Murray during the Revolutionary War, and has passed through the hands of generations of owners, ultimately taking on the name The Temperance House. Whatever its title or whoever its proprietors are, the location has provided a place to meet, eat, and plot against the British throughout its 200-year lifespan. The current managing couple, Carlene and Pasquale Deon, enhances the building's rustic charm with fully restored décor to preserve the historically rich interior. Their chefs craft menus that blend culinary styles from France, Asia, and Italy into an international menu of fine eats that includes everything from kimchi rolls to gnocchi with buffalo mozzarella. :m]]
Chef John Talbot delivers mouthwatering fare from the land and the sea to rest on Creed's elegant white tablecloths. Yellowfin tuna drizzled with ponzu sauce ($29) and chimichurri-topped New Zealand king salmon ($28) headline a list of fresh charcoal-grilled fish. Manager and sommelier Josef Plattner is often on hand to offer suggestions for which wine to pair with a New York strip steak ($38) or to mingle with a mustard-herb-crusted rack of lamb ($36). Though the menu favors meat, there are also a number of tasty vegetarian options, including the house-made vegetarian ravioli, stuffed with crimini mushrooms and ricotta cheese, served with fried spinach and a gazpacho coulis ($18). With its soft cream-hued walls and tasteful décor, Creed's is an ideal location for romantic get-togethers or business meetings with bands of ravenous highwaymen.
