Our waiter Chris was very knowledgeable and gave excellent service despite being busy. The food was delicious and they were accommodating to one in our party who is a vegetarian and has food allergies. Definitely will book a fancier dinner in the dining room again. I have since returned for a more casual meal in the bar area which was great too!

A beautiful old building with the potential for a wonderful, memorable dinner! We got forgotten several times by the waiter, we had lots of water glasses but no dishes for a while, and the food was ok but overpriced (and often just drowning in sauce). Really too bad, I wanted so badly to eat here, but not worth a second visit.

The server Matt was very nice, he tried. The food took forever to get. We waited over a half hour just for our salads. It would be OK, but the place only had 15 people eating. 12 were in a party and the 3 of us. The food was ok. Mine was warm/cold. One was hot and the other mixed. The prices were a little high, glad we had a Groupon.

The Salmon was one of the best I have ever had. They make a good martini too.

The middle aged, hostess/manager is a clinical level passive-aggressive nutball, beware. She was a train wreck from the minute we walked in to the moment we left. The waiter, Chris, was very nice and competent. The food, good, unusually good job with the seafood dishes, not overcooked. Avoid that woman if you can! I would can her on the spot if I was the owner.

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]]
