    The overall ambience and setting is lovely if you are into a traditional Colonial vibe. It was was very much an older crowd. (50 and above). The food was good, classic dishes. Nothing creative or edgy here. Our server was excellent, and attentive.

    My husband and I went for our 37th anniversary. They sat us in a room with no other people. We eat dinner by ourselves every night so we asked to be moved into the room with a little more action. Our waitress was outstanding! I think it took longer for our drinks to be made than it did for our dinners to be served. I ordered a medium filet but it came out pretty rare. It was very thick and I know that can happen but just wasn't expecting that. I asked to have it cooked a little longer and they did without a problem. My husband ordered an Old Fashioned and it was served with an ice cream Sunday marachino cherry - wasn't expecting that either. LOL!

    Fire burning, tasteful holiday decor, and delicious winter dishes. The lobster appetizer was delicious. The crab cake entree was a good size and balanced beautifully with the sweet potato purée. The farmer’s stew was a warming, tasty winter dish. The service is always attentive without being annoying. It is a favorite place to celebrate family occasions.

    My family and I had a lovely dinner at the General Warren Sunday night November 26th. The food was spectacular. I noticed our 5 plates appeared to be "licked clean" when we were finished. The Beef Wellington, Steak au Poivre..all perfectly delicious. Amanda was our waitress. She was helpful, lovely, we were not rushed. She was very attentive.

    Our waiter was outstanding. Sadly my daughter's choice for dinner was a failure!! Not good at all! My dinner was good and enough so that we could both share it and not go home hungry. Thanks to our waiter, we did not have to pay for daughter's meal. As always, the ambiance was very nice. We were in the small back room, so it was not noisy - very peaceful. Sue Staas

    This restaurant is well known to my wife and I and they have done very well across the board with intimate meals as well as local hospital physician receptions and my son's wedding rehearsal dinner. I am pleased to say that they have not changed their overall approach to an excellent dining experience since the pandemic and their snapper soup is still a real standout.

    The bread was terrible and came out cold as did the butter which was very hard. The waitress found us two other rolls but they were of equally poor quality and also came out cold. The entree was excellent as always- I’ve been dining there since 1989. Then the dessert came out cold and the ice cream that came with it was very hard as if it had been scooped beforehand and came out of the freezer and onto the plate. Very disappointing.

    The food and wine were good. Had trouble getting anything without garlic. All the sides were preseasoned so I ended up with a piece of salmon on a salad which was good but it took awhile to figure out what they could do for me. We had guests that were gluten free and dairy free and they were set up for those. They loved the crab cakes. Evidently they have gluten free bread but were out when we were there. Next time we may ask to sit in the bar room as our designated room was really loud and they could not move our table to a different location. We will go back again but we did enjoy it but will be better prepared. '
