Not fine dining atmosphere... More relaxed than that but definately more than just cheap casual. Nice mix for a great meal at not crazy prices. And with great service as well.... In heart of the downtown area.

Attended a wedding reception at this venue and it was absolutely perfect. The venue was beautiful and the service was phenomenal, especially our waiter/bartender George! It was a great night and he made it all that much more enjoyable. Absolutely fantastic at his job.
