It's really amazing how restaurants come and restaurants go but this place remains consistently good after being around for decades. Their food is always pleasing, whether you want the basics or a but more gourmet., with lots of choices on the menu. Prices are very moderate. Our party was there for Sunday brunch which is a really great value and excellent, and the cool live music was a definite plus. TheI outdoor dining in the summer is my favorite. We will keep coming back for more.
Food was great. Place was very beautiful inside and I really enjoyed my lamb chop dinner. However, I made a reservation for 2 about 3 weeks in advance. When we went to the place I was expecting them to seat us at a table for 2 . Instead, they put us at a table for 4 when a table for 2 was open right next to us. I really wished we had the table of two since it was a romantic Valentine's Day dinner.
Great atmosphere and service. Ordered Prime rib so it was a 2 hour dining experience, on top it was a busy Friday evening. Waitress did best she can. Prime rib was ok will probably order something else next time. Enjoyed the tap selection and will definitely revisit.
The food was mediocre at best. Greasy fries and congealed cocktail sauce. Overly Greasy Everything to be honest! Waiter was very sweet tho!
Great neighborhood place with delicious food. Usually come for dinner and/or late night snack. Brought my neighbor for a birthday lunch.
Hamburgers are good and chilli calamari was very good. Not impressed with their other food entrees.. Very bland tasting. Overall nice place and would go back again
Got there, it was almost empty, took them one hour to prepare order, ONE HOUR!
quality was very poor, if you go only for glass of beer, if anything more than that find another place
Food was good for a bar food place. We sat outside and unfortunately the waitress tended to forget we were there so our service was slow. She was very nice when she did come out though. I can be a little noisy when the trains go by but the outside seating is nice.
I would recommend it as a convenient place to meet in Kew Gardens if you are an LIRR commuter.
I found the TV screens on the tables very distracting. The service was somewhat chaotic and slow. However, the staff was friendly and therefore I would still recommend the place.
They feature local artists and it was a very nice meal of burgers and steak sandwiches.
