What a beautiful historic setting! Everything about this place is delightful. Easy parking, lovely grounds open to their guests, an interesting menu with great food, friendly staff and lots of southern hospitality. This is also the perfect sight for special occasions.

The food was good. It's a little more fine dining environment for lunch and the prices reflect that, but I didn't find them unreasonable. Our waitress was friendly and helpful although I felt the service part was slow. At our table we crab cakes, the Brie and Crab dip, shrimp scampi, salad, and chicken tenders for the non adventurous eater in group. Everything was delicious and well prepared. Definitely worth the stop for lunch!

Our wedding reception was beautiful and so much fun but I was very disappointed because I was told the coozies would be put in a basket a few at a time at the bar and that was not done because they forgot. We have more than half of our coozies sitting at home now. Also I was told the plantation will supply the champagne and glasses for the toast. The bridal attendant told my photographer "no" when my photographer told her to call all of the bridal party by the cake table. So i got no pictures with all of our bridal party at the reception. I was told the champagne glasses were at the bar. Okay what good was that? They were not at the table.I planned with the manager and met with her for a few months and I even met with her two days before the wedding to make sure everything was set in stone. She was so nice and helpful. I never even met the wedding attendant and she was the one taking care of us at the wedding, she was nice. I felt like there was a lack of communication because I paid a lot of money for our special day and those simple things I asked for was not done as promised. I know things happen and can not be perfect sometimes but it is not like I was asking for hard things to do. I was so excited and caught up in the moment that I did not realized until the next day that i did recieve what I expected and paid for and it was to late to do anything about it. Sometimes it is the little things that mean a lot. But the food was AMAZING! Chef is awesome.

We received several compliments on your reception but of course our main goal is to please you, the bride.
We ask our brides for a timeline for their reception and our Bridal Attendant follows their requests and coordinates the activities as each couple orchestrates their celebration differently.
- The koozies, as favors, are usually put out for the guests to take, some at the bar to use for drinks and the others on the favor table.
- The champagne flutes are put on the cake table from the bride and groom, others are kept at the bar should the wedding party want a champagne toast usually followed on the timeline from the couple.
- Wedding pictures - Each couple does their wedding pictures differently. Some take pictures before the ceremony, some after, etc. Usually our brides and their photographer coordinates the sequence of pictures taken for the night.
Our Bridal Attendant assists with the coordination of these events and always does a wonderful job handling wedding parties.
We apologize for your feeling your requests were not properly carried out and communication lost.
Although the wedding was beautiful, the food amazing and everyone may have had a wonderful time; it is the little things that count in looking at the big picture. We are extremely sorry to hear of any disappointment you may have experienced on your special day. Our goal is to please our brides in each and every way. We hope that you accept our apologies and will not let this sour a beautiful start to an amazing future as Mr. and Mrs.

The restaurant in this plantation is consistently good. They have big portions for very reasonable prices. The smoked pork, eggplant maurepas, crab and brie dip, etc are always delicious. A meal like this 20 minutes to the east would be triple the price. Take the trip out and you won't be disappointed.
