Counting House is my favorite go to place for yummy food, relaxed environment and a no rush feel. The art gallery vibe is a bonus, the waiters and waitresses are inviting and it's a place where I love to go to relax, eat and drink.

Grown-up grilled cheese with a*wonderful* tomato bisque for dipping and a perfectly done fritatta prior to attending a matinee at the DPAC. Enjoy the art before, during, and after dining. P.S. the best creme Brulee! Beautiful flecks of vanilla under that sugary crust - yum!

I had a reservation for brunch on Saturday 11/11/23 to celebrate my birthday! I was hesitant after reading the brunch/breakfast reviews but decided to proceed. I wish I wouldn’t have. I had the deviled eggs as an appetizer and they had no flavor other than the crispy garlic bits. The burger was not good and my friend’s burger was overcooked. My friend didn’t like the salad, she shared there were too many contradicting textures. The tater tots and shrimp rolls were good though! I like the atmosphere and would check it out for dinner but would not return for brunch. Also, someone who worked there was trying to charge me $25 per person removed from the reservation although the cancellation policy is $25 if the reservation is cancelled. Thankfully the manager was able to confirm my understanding of the policy was correct vs. being charged $75 for removing 3 chairs.

As a seafood lover this was delicious. But my fiance doesn't like seafood, so we were pretty disappointed to find out it is turning into a seafood spot. Overall it was pretty good.

Elegant restaurant in a museum hotel. The milk bread was my teen daughters favorite and I quote ”best bread I have ever had”. I got the short ribs it was tender, flavorful and comforting. My daughter got the pub burger she said was amazing she wasn’t a fan of the fries. Great spot for a date night or intimate family gathering.

Our waitress was completely accommodating to us, even though (apparently, and we didn't realize) they were about to close. Good is about every piece of art, guided us about the old bank building, and even wave and thanked us when we happened to see her on the street. Our other waitress was spot on, able to remember every order, mod to orders, etc without writing it down, and got it all right.
