This place is a throwback to the 1950s, in décor, in style of wait staff, but also it is a throwback to the best kind of steakhouse. The quality of the meat here is as good as the much more expensive steak houses in downtown...More

This is a nice neighborhood bar/restaurant. Had a reservation but didn't feel rushed while having a drink prior. Had the shrimp and my friend had the prime rib. We then divided them. We started with the French onion soup. You must have this it is...More

I've been eating here since my Robert Bosch days in the early 1990s. The bar is well stocked and the cocktails are excellent. Both the bar and eating areas are rather small so definitely make reservations for the weekends. Food is outstanding and prices are...More
