The food is excellent and it's a very nice place to eat out. Very quiet and you can have a conversation with your guess without shouting.

The night started off on the wrong foot - we were told the wait to sit down was 30 minutes, 35 tops. An hour later we finally got seated. They sent over an order to chicken wings to apologize (nice touch), however, we never recovered. The overall service was very slow and lackluster. One of the teens in our party... More

Time for the Common Man to change the menu. The cuisine is tired, prepared by a kitchen that does not care to impress the patrons.

Excellent wine list, by the glass selections too. Very good food with a variety of selection. and the staff were wonderful. We were there on a snowy night a few days before Christmas, it was crowded without feeling cramped. Parking can be a walk as the lot was small. Overall, great visit there.

Delicious meals and desserts. I got the chili. I typically don't like beans but there weren't many. We both got peppered bacon burgers. Which were delicious and exactly how we like them.

Love the atmosphere and the menu is always changing. The dining room is warm and inviting. There is often a fire going in the corner. The wait staff is pleasant. Food is fantastic.
