It truly is a great resturant. If they mess up, they fix it to your satisfaction! Eaten there many times and will keep returning.

Good food. Great service. Crowded. Really nice upscale restaurant with a great menu. You need to go early or after 7 PM because between 5 and 7 this place is buzzing. If you like that, have at it!

Meal was spotty. Wife’s prime rib sandwich was good. Surprised she wasn’t asked if she wanted rare, medium, well. My specialty hamburger was ordered medium rare and was medium well. Overcooking made this hamburger pedestrian rather than excellent. Waiter never came over to check on...More
