The interior of this place is great. However, I've always been left disappointed in the food. With so many awesome restaurants around, you've got to do more than just look good. In fact, I think quality of food would by far trump looks any day......More

The food here is actually quite good but terribly overpriced. The price for a Coke is just one example. With tip, we spent nearly $50 for a fairly light lunch for two, no drinks other than the single above-mentioned soda. (One of us just had...More

This was my first visit for a pre-theater dinner. I started with a berry martini and on my server's suggestion, ordered the lobster hush puppies and cucumber sliders. Both were so flavorful, the lobster hush puppies with a corn relish and just enough heat for...More

We had dinner at INdustri Cafe before heading to the theater for a show and were very pleased. The small plates are very imaginatively prepared and presented with great flavors. One of the evening specials was more of an entree than a small plate. The...More

My husband and I had brunch here after a stay at the Iron Horse hotel. I had a delicious mimosa with freshly squeezed orange juice-fairly priced at $7. I ordered the savory crepes and my husband had some type of vanilla french toast. Both dishes...More

We've never been disappointed on previous dining experiences here, although our recent visit didn't quite measure up to the earlier. One can't go wrong with this choice. Food has always been exceptional. Small plates and burgers are featured on the comfort food menu, so those...More
