Have visited this restaurant many times, as a Couple, with friends and a work group dinner. The food is delicious! The chef come up with amazing combos for lunches, appetizers, salads, soups, hand heads, and main courses. Try something new, we did ! Was fabulous!
The staff are pleasant, knowledgeable, helpful, to ensure you have a great meal. Nancy are waitress the other evening was fabulous.
So nice to a local restaurant that we can frequent. It’s a BnB , but don’t let that stop you from having an enjoyable meal out!
Can’t wait for nicer weather to enjoy the patio!!!

Thea’s atmosphere and ambience make it the perfect place for date night or dinner with friends and family. The beautifully curated decor matches the expertly crafted menu. Owner and chef AnnMarie, with her gifted culinary talents, ensures your experience will be nothing short of phenomenal. I highly recommend checking out Thea and making it your go-to for any occasion.

Reservation made and, despite being empty we were seated at the sole shall table with two metal chairs in the middle of the floor in lieu of the booth/chair table. Very disappointing.

We decided to try a new place close to home and we were not disappointed. Tried the truffle fries as an appetizer. Very yummy. We like to go byob and our server came right out with 2 glasses and opened our bottle. Both tried the evening’s specials and both were awesome. Will definitely be back with friends.

Always a nice atmosphere and great value when you can bring your own bottle of wine or adult beverages. Generally reliable and consistent. Only had problem one time and they fixed it!

Wonderful! Went on Valentine’s Day so it was packed and noisy, but plenty of space for a smaller restaurant and the food was gourmet and tasty. You will spend some money, but it’s worth it for what you get!

I made reservations for a Valentines lunch date with my wife at Theo's - one of our favorite entries. But unfortunately, after ordering my soup came only lukewarm and had to be sent back for reheating. Then my wife ordered the special a Gluten Free (GF) crab cake sandwich (NOTE: she is highly allergic to gluten/wheat products and as always we informed the server). This time the server brought the sandwich out made on a wheat bread bun so we had to wait and have it completely reordered GF. We like Theo's because the owner/chef has always made sure that GF orders are in fact GF and she even has told us that her kitchen is set up with completely separate prep areas to insure no cross contamination for GF food safety. Overall, this visit was not even a satisfactory experience and not the quality food or preparation in service we have grown accustomed to at Theo's. We will be reluctant to visit there again or recommend Theo's to others but then again I suppose one unfortunate visit out of half a dozen or more is at best borderline and possibly worth reconsideration. -RAB

The crab cakes were the best we’ve ever had. You must try them out!!! I got the halibut special and also really enjoyed it. Had Thea cake for dessert - a mousse cake with Krispie crust. It was also rich, but quite delicious! Overall, we’d go back and highly recommend it!

On recommendation of our daughter-in-law and a gift card, decided to try out Thea. Found it located in a new area of homes and in a multi-shop setting that looks like city blocks revitalized by new businesses. Attractive and upscale look inside, we were welcomed and seated at a sunny table next to windows. Staff were great and our waitress Janet was really excellent in making us feel welcome and explaining menu options. A winery will soon open a shop nearby and Janet provided us a courtesy tasting of their wines. Although the restaurant was busy, noise was not a problem for conversation. Thea has rather a family feel and it was obvious that the owners and staff take pride in all they offer and do. Our tasty lunch selections were well prepared and presented. Portions were substantial and we ended up taking some home for another meal. Prices were in line with the dining experience and quality of our meals. Will return in the near future for a dinner.
