Good Thyme Restaurant is in a 100 year old yellow house on Highway 13. It also does catering in the area and is run and staffed by mostly women. It is a large place with a porch outside equipped with lots of furniture to enjoy the weather. A fireplace is in the middle of the first floor where you enter and is surrounded by rooms full of copper tables and comfortable seating. Windows look out on the grounds and the walls are decorated with art, much of which is for sale. In the back is a copper bar incircling a mountain of liquor bottles. Some people chose to eat at the bar as well as the many stopping there for a cocktail before dinner. It was packed with people and reservations are a must. They are only open for dinner Wednesday through Saturday during the summer. Service was friendly, helpful and efficient. It is not a large menu but there is good variety and they do have the Friday Fish Fry which is common in the area. We were there to try that.
We started with a Negroni at the bar and then were escorted to our table.
On the advice of our server we did not order any starters and she was spot on. The Beer Battered Whitefish came with a cheddar garlic biscuit, coleslaw, choice of plank fries or smashed red potatoes and tartar sauce. You can have more fish as it is an ‘all you can eat fish fry’. The fish had a nice coating but as with many whitefish it is a soft fish and it has a really mild flavor. It helped to have the lemon wedge and tartar sauce to spice it up a bit. The cheddar biscuits were a tad dry but had good flavor. The fries were nicely crisp with a good potato interior. The cole slaw was nice and made without too much mayo. It was good enough that we split an additional order of fish, but if I get there again I hope to try some of their other offerings.
