Main Dining Room


ACT I Begins in the wine cellar
All our guests are invited into our wine cellar to begin the evening. You are handed the evening’s menu and a flute of Hobbit Champagne. Hot and cold hors d’oeuvres are placed throughout the cellar for you to enjoy while selecting your wine for dinner.

Executive chef/owner Mike Philippi, his wife Debra, are available in the cellar to help select wines -- a fun task with over 1000 labels from which to choose.

ACT II Our guests are invited upstairs to their own table
Act II includes a shellfish or fish course, followed by a fowl or light meat and then a salad course. You are then invited to enjoy “intermission” – take a walk, relax on the patios or visit the kitchen to speak with the chefs.

ACT III Return to the table
Ten to fifteen minutes later you are invited to return to your reset table for Act III. A flavorful sorbet is next as a palate-cleanser. The main entrée is served complete with accompanying vegetables. Dessert arrives next, always available with an after dinner list of coffee drinks, liqueurs and fine cognacs.

Wednesday through Sunday we begin at 7:00 p.m.  Special event dinner times may vary. The Hobbit lounge with full bar is open one hour prior to each dining time. Our food is referred to as “Contemporary Continental”, a reference to its encompassing many world cuisines.
