Arrived about 6:30 on a Friday and needed a table for five. We were told there would be a 20 minute wait and they don't take reservations. We were third on the list and went to the bar. I checked with the hostess 35 minutes...More

I stopped by here for a business lunch and was pleasantly surprised. The French onion soup was very good and the grilled cheese was a very nice compliment to it. The bar is very nice and offers good beers and cocktails. Overall, I liked this...More
