Been here many times. Great atmosphere. But my prime rib was extremely disappointing. Was cold on top. Sent it back. Was still Luke warm. Flavor was nothing to get excited about. Won’t be ordering that again.

This is the third time I’ve been to this restaurant. Each time I go in thinking I’m going to figure out what all the hype is about. Again, I don’t get it. The menu is fairly limited, and overpriced for lunch time. We thankfully got...More

There are some vegetarian dishes available but am not sure if they are truly vegan. You would need to call. The nearby Ethos restaurant is a large and varied menu, very tasty vegan restaurant for all ages.
