Dinner for 25, well catered with excellent attention. Buffets from appetizer to dinner to desert was very good; presentation, selection, flavor. Plan to return for dinner. Nice dining room and bar.

Visited for lunch as I was in the neighborhood and have had some good meals here many years ago. I had the lunch burger, ordered medium rare, it was served overcooked, with little flavor. Mediocre service to boot. Too many other options to return.

Yes--there is usually a valet option that is $1 or $2 more than self-park in the lot that is very close to the Rattlesnake Club. It is guarded, convenient and safe. Parking is very reasonable...I think it's $5 in the lot... More
