Food was ok but not worth what we paid for it . Restaurant was pretty empty. We had to ask several times just to be able to find it due to lack of signage.

Had dinner on a busy Saturday night. Food and service were very, very good. Tried the seafood and steaks. Both were very good.

What a way to unwind with dinner and drinks after a day of shopping, site-seeing and gambling at Cavanaughs. We have been several times and each time the service and food are always excellent.

Usually a good meal. Not sure what happened tonight. Pork chop was Pittsburgh well and took too long. I am not one to give poor reviews but for $40 food should be cooked correctly. Still like eating here. Piano is nice.

You see all types of dress in there, since it's connected to the casino. The menu and prices are upscale, so business casual is about as casual as I would be willing to go.
