Good choice for a night out, just be ready to pay for it. The food and service is always spot on and a very nice setting.

It’s sad to see unwelcoming warning sign on each door of this establishment which essentially will turn a Law abiding CCW permit holder into a criminal simply by entering to order food. I had drinks and did not notice the sign until after I had...More

Had dinner here tonight. This is a converted train station into a funky restaurant. Great location, super atmosphere, good service, excellent beer selection and ok food. The angel hair pasta was average but my husband really enjoyed his bbq.
