We did not have reservations but were welcomed all the same. Our service was excellent and the food was very good. The 49 cent shrimp cocktail was to die for. Will definitely return!

We went there for dinner and could not have had a better time. The service was exceptional and the decor was of the Rat Pack vintage. It is an old style bar restaurant with food to die for. I had lasagna and it was great....More
