Had dinner for the first time at The Powerhouse Eatery. The food was excellent and the service was very good. Both the veal marsala and the steak were tender and tasty.

Cool building. Food quality very good. Entrees a bit pricey but burgers and salads are a good value. No beer on tap but decent and thoughtful bottle list. Friendly informative staff.
