Outstanding meal and service. The only way to go if you are going to the theater. Free shuttle to and from make it the perfect evening. Every aspect of our meal was incredible. We will definitely be going back.

We had dinner with friends last Saturday night and it was a wonderful dinner and evening. Food and service was excellent. The lobster bisque was great as was everything. Easy to talk and visit. We will go back soon.
