I was somewhat disappointed. The presentation was great; but the food was just ok. For 3 for lunch it was over $100 (no alcohol) and I was just not overly impressed with the food.

We were treated to impeccable service and a broad range of choices on the menu. Definitely have the onion rings to start. The salads are fresh and delicious. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and melted in our mouth. You will enjoy your meal and will definitely return again and again. I know we will.

This place offers excellent meals and is capable of catering to the busy business executive. Everyone of the meals are exceptional. Be sure to same room for the carrot cake. By far it is the best.

I've tried so many menu items over the years but my go to is the French Dip with fries (good gracious these fries... More

The Ahi Tuna Steak is amazing. Perfectly prepared with Tor dipping sauce. One of my favorites. They also serve warm bread but you have to ask for it, they don't automatically bring it to your table.

Went for lunch on Monday and apparently it was a weekly special. Outstanding. I sat at the bar, service was great, and the meal was promptly served. Can't wait to go back there.

Everyone enjoyed their entrees of Fish Tacos, Crab cakes, Shrimp Taco's, We felt the crab cakes were over priced with a huge mound of French fries hiding the... More

We were in the area for several days for a Mayo Clinic appointment. Ate at a number of places, We are real foodies. Our first visit here was a winner and we can't wait to go back in December. We shared the wood grilled artichoke, we knew it would be a little messy but it was worth it. Perfect char... More

Lunch on a Thursday at 1:30 PM with my wife. Seated quickly at a very nice table in a very pleasant and clean atmosphere. I ordered the deviled eggs as our appetizer....very good.I ordered the french-dip for lunch. It was just awful.....the bread was mushy and the meat was grisly and tasted awful. I don't like the fries that serve... More
