Dream House & Tea Room (4 reviews)
The lobster bisque was just plain awful. No ceramic tea pot used here just a stainless pot of hot water that was brought out at the beginning of the meal and cold by the time I wanted a second cup of tea. Just tea bags no loose leaf tea offered. The shop has lots to offer however the tea room has no intimacy, you are just all thrown together. My friend and I were seated at a small and I mean small table, no place to put your purse or jacket, the adjoining table was too close. The soup ruined the experience, it even had imitation crab meat YUCK Don't advertise as tea room if it is simply a restaurant. The desserts were not homemade but bought from vendors. Would not recommend and will not be going back.
The food was good. I don't like tea houses in strip malls. This one however didn't give you that fell once you were insdie. I didn't like the tea bags! I buy them for home. I don't want it when i go to a tea room. It was costly for the tea as well. I wasn't expecting to pay a premium price for hot water and a tea bag. Our server was put out by a group of 8. She did do her best. However she looked like she could use some help. They give my mother a coupon because it was her birthday. That was nice.
Dream House Tea Room was a wonderful experience. Food is great. I had the special of the day BBQ sandwiche with a great salad and chips. Had wonderful apple cobbler and icecream for dessert. The iced tea was perfect. The atmosphere was southern hospitality you almost felt like you were on a old porch veranda. We had live entertainment music on that Thursday which was so enjoyable, we said we would definitely like to come back. We drove 15 miles to the Dream House and will make the trip again soon. It sure was worth it!
Great food, great atmosphere. I did not personally order the tea, but the Artichoke Parmesan Quiche was great and their Coconut Cream pie was the best I've had.
