Best food in town. Never a bad meal. The service is very good. I must say tho, that it can be a little noisy if crowded.

Love the ambiance, the food and the staff. Friendly, accommodating and efficient. Some of the best prime rib we've had anywhere. The shrimp bisque and onion soup were terrific and the lemon cake was superb. It's now one of our favorite place to go.
