We gathered here for our Thanksgiving. The children had delicious turkey meals and dessert. I had the prime rib and was not disappointed! Martini's were tasty and my husband's whiskey hit the spot. My child is a picky eater and he loves this place.

We have been here for brunch and then decided to hold my son's wedding rehearsal dinner here. It was just terrific. The staff was great, the menu that they created for the event was perfect. Have been there for dinner as well...Steaks are amazing.

It was a nice place but small. Not enough servers on the floor which creates issues with the food delivery. Food is ok but nothing to brag about. Overall ok place for simple food. Alcohol is on the high price and beer selection is weird.

Gene, this is a wonderful restaurant. Not only is the staff very friendly, but the food is to die for! They have a playlist of songs from the mid to late 60's, early 70's. If your party is less than 12 people, they don't... More
