Just visited the Park again after a long time. The decor has been updated and the menu improved. The prices are definitely higher but the quality also seems to be much improved. I had the crab cake appetizer which was delicious and the Mary's Pressed Chicken for an entree. The chicken was perfectly cooked and well seasoned - the only disappointment was the relatively flavorless "creamed spinach" base. They have a full bar and lots of mixology options plus a surprisingly good choice of wines. Lots of parking plus valet if you want that.

Busy restaurant with nice ambience and very good service at lunchtime. Both guys had sandwiches that were packed with meat. Another friend and I had tacos which were very, very petite. Good but short on quantity. If I went again I’d have a sandwich.

We were staying here and I wanted the mussels and my husband wanted to go out. I stayed at the hotel and went to the bar solo. I felt very comfortable and welcomed. The happy hour menu is great. They had Pliney the Elder on draft which is amazing!. The bartender had just won a cocktail making contest and the locals were at the bar congratulating him. Even though this bar is part of the hotel, many locals go here. Very friendly and great deals on food.

I have had the opportunity to eat here many times. I even celebrated a bday dinner. Ask for server Paige. She is the best. The calamari is the best I’ve had. Another favorite is their French onion soup. The cheeseburger with bacon is spot on. If you are ready for short Ribs and the higher end of menu, you won’t be disappointed. Save room for the reconstructed cheesecake for dessert.
