Food is always exceptional. I love the Lobster Sandwich lunch on Fridays. This is a very classy place. Near the race track, so during the racing season you'll get the fans. The rest of the time it's full of locals.

We were disappointed with our dinner here, waitress forgot our wine until we asked for it, no reservation in the system. I would not recommend the chicken dinner or Manhattan clam chowder. To be fair, the prime rib was delicious, we all should have ordered...More

We were not dressed formally and when we walked in I didn't think we would be allowed to dine. The person at the desk said we were just fine and that put me at ease. Once seated we looked around and saw a very nice...More
