I wasn't happy with the menu choices. Former favorite choices weren't available. Jumbo Crab Cake was really missed. The food we ordered was good. Cheese bread was really good, as was the smoked salmon appetizers. MAJORLY disappointed that they only serve Bloody Mary's on weekends!!!!...More

Having eaten here several times on various business trips, I have to say it is always fantastic. I've had many items from the menu and they are all first class. It's not overly expensive when considering the quality of food and drink on offer. The...More
