Fantastic restaurant! Pricey but worth it! The bacon wrapped shrimp is unbelievable and the bacon wrapped shrimp appetizer is a must. The open face prime rib sandwich is huge and more like a dinner. The ribs are literally fall apart tender. Great place.

Met family for dinner. We sat in the lower level dining room which you access from the rear of the building. We were seated right away. Server came immediately and got out drink order. We were on no hurry and she was very accommodating. Ordered crab cake appetizer, dinners with salads. A little surprised the app. And salads came at the same time. Crab cakes were ok. Nothing special. House dressing on salads was very good. I had chicken with mushrooms and cheese- pretty good. Side choices included eggplant parmigiano which was very good. They offer several different sides for a nice change. We enjoyed our dinner and would go again if in town.

Very nice fine dining restaurant with an almost casual atmosphere. The service was excellent just like the food is. Everything was cooked perfectly and seasoned extremely well. Nothing over-salted or too much spice. The only thing I wish is that they had some larger steak size choices. Putting a Porterhouse Steak on the menu might be the way to go,

Food was wonderful. We had prime rib and the filet, cooked perfectly. The stuffed baked potato was really good as well.
We started with drinks in bar area downstairs. You can eat there if you want or in the dining area upstairs.
Service was friendly and informative about food and the restaurant. Will return!

We enjoyed our food very much but it is on the pricey side. Make sure you get a slice of cake, our strawberry was delicious!
