Somewhat pricey, but absolutely worth the experience. Great for a special date or a special occasion.

I was very disappointed to have placed our order, finished our appetizers, be mid-way through our second cocktail, only to have our server tell me "I am sorry, we are out of ribs." I ended up with my second choice. Overall, I have always had a very good experience here with both private and public functions. Will come back, but better communication between kitchen and wait staff should be encouraged.

We had an excellent meal, however, we couldn't get reservations in the dining room and had to eat in the bar area which allowed smoking. Both my husband and I are not smokers, so we would not risk going back because of this. It is ashame, because the food and our server were over the top!

From Our Editors

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]]
