We've been to the restaurant a couple times we are always impressed by the food and service!! The potato gnocchi is the best. Kaitie and Mike at the bar are the best!!

Reservations a must. Popular place with delicious food. Try the lamb shank or the salmon with lentils or the Angus steak- all great. A little on the noisy side yet after all, it is a pub. Our server, Caroline was excellent.

The food was excellent. Our steaks were cooked exactly to our request. The service was world class. The wine was a little expensive but well worth the price. Our only criticism was that it was a little noisy. In defense of that criticism, there was...More

This was a really nice meal. The place looks like nothing from the outside. It is well worth the meal.

Our family group of 5 thoroughly enjoyed this older place with a well chosen menu, lots of perfectly done choices such as tenderloin, duck breast and such. Great bar drinks as well!
