The restaurant closed a few months ago. Too bad it was a great place to get a very tasty sandwich ( pastrami)

(Wanted to get something a little better than mall Pizza) Short and sweet. Ordered 2 cheese and 1 pepperoni. Simple order. The server let me know that it will... More

We go there fairly often. Food is in abundance. Go at night for the dueling pianos and have a ball. Price is very fair. Very open seating so when it is cold outside, it can be chilly inside. Place is getting a tad worn so I hope this does not mean it will be closing.

They have a very strict and limited menu. We asked to try to simplify something and they wouldn't allow it! The chef doesn't make substitutions! They do have great music later at night and that's about it. Come to drink and listen to music. They also shoved us in the tiny little table in the corner because ALL of the... More

Hello, Was excited to meet friends at the piano bar. Sounded fun but was a total dissapointment. The service was lousy, the place was crowded with various birthday groups. We did not get what we ordered initially. When the ordered dish finally arrived it was WRONG. After complaining to the waiter once again we were shoved to the side and... More

We knew it would be fun when we couldn't find a parking place - & there's lots of parking! Security at the door, giant room, big bar, lots of crowd noise, birthdays & balloons, cheap eats & drinks during the week, plus great deli with lots of choices.

Not your average run of the mill restaurant. Combination bar/nightclub in evening. Service so-so but good food with indoor and outdoor dining.
