This venue is a little underwhelming, seems tailored to banquets instead of regular dining. Very brief menu and we felt a bit rushed out by one of our bartenders.

My waiter was very polite, the food came quickly, plenty of food, great tasting steak and onion rings. Hardly anybody in the restaurant both nights I was there. I sat by the window and watched the world go by.
