Stopped in Thanksgiving weekend with family. Had an all around wonderful experience. Server was grand, food was outstanding. Lamb over the top. Wine perfect, will be back when in town again

If you're eating light or watching your calories, this is not the place to go. But if you like stick-to-your-ribs meat and potatoes, there's a lot to like here. The grilled pastrami on rye is delicious on a cold day.

The restaurant was very busy at 8p on a Wednesday night. So, it is clearly popular. My work colleague and I were expecting a bit better though. The menu talks about how they prepare the meats in a "dry rub", but we did not notice...More

The hugely popular 1/2 price wine by the bottle attracts wine lovers every Monday night from 4-11 p.m. The outdoor firepit creates a relaxing setting to wine and dine for any occasion. Gluten Free & Vegetarian Menus available.
