As aways, they provide the best experience and even go the extra mile. Yesterday, we celebrated my wife’s birthday. They took the time to print out menus for us that had Happy birthday and my wife’s name. Priceless

I had a T-bone- that was cooked perfectly, my wife had the filet francs her comment was one word: excellent! Our salads and artichoke dip were very tasty and the desert: butter pecan bread pudding with ice cream the perfect way to end the night with a coffee.

Elegant aroma with a new view. Food was delicious but would classify the atmosphere as a bit more on the drinking side. Still an amazing experience definitely going back.
