We ate here twice on this trip, and it was excellent. The on tap Bar is excellent. Interesting staff. Food choices represented a good selection. Couldn't hear any of the conversations from other diners even though the place was full.

Our group of 9 enjoyed the varied selections on the menu. The special bread is extremely good and they provide the recipe when asked!! A few of us experienced lukewarm entrees, with excellent flavor.

It was a very busy Friday night and we were lucky to get a table without a reservation. The house was packed. The service was efficient and friendly and the meal good.
