From the service to the wine, to the Lobster & Shrimp Bisque, to the Filet entree, to the Strawberry Romanoff and coffee! This is an experience worth having, don't go in a rush or with plans, just some good friends and a lot of conversation!

My fish with the lime sauce was very good. I even flagged the bus boy down when I couldn't catch the attention of our waiter to bring additional sauce so I could sop up every bite of fish in that delectable sauce. My husband's Bavarian mixed platter was okay - nothing special.

This time worn establishment is resting on it's laurels a little too much. The food was good - but not outstanding. The decor? Too 1990s. Music was awful - whatever station they were playing was schizophrenic going from Frank Sinatra (which is actually appropriate and pleasant) to the Jackson 5 to James Taylor to Disco and on and on....
