Our onion soups came out before my escargot appetizer got there one minute later. Soup was barely hot and did not have that rich onion and beef stock flavor that comes from... More

A nostalgic homage to the classic steak house. Although geared to meat eaters, there are other options as well. Our party went for the beef - filet mignon, cowboy steak...there is also a 32 oz. behemoth for those who dare...meat cooked to your specs, great sides, drinks and wine list. Eat at the bar because just listening to Tommy, the... More
