Formerly Ernesto’s Country Italian Inn, The Courthouse Grille overhauled its name, menu, and interior to become the intimate Italian-American eatery it is today. While still featuring a selection of Chef Ernesto’s best-loved dishes, the menu has expanded to include eclectic cuisine such as seafood-stuffed crêpes and lobster mac ‘n’ cheese.
The restaurant's façade remains as formidable as ever, with white columns supporting porches in front of the yellow, clapboard siding. The peaks of pediments rise above arched, floor-to-ceiling windows that flood the dining room with the natural light craved by potted plants and solar-powered chefs.
