Always a nice place to go. They used to have these nice rolls, but now they have toasted pita bread and it is just as nice. Every night is still 1/2 price bottle of wine night.....you can't beat that.

Great place for a family dinner. The kids meal came with a great side of fruit. The wings and Reuben fries were fantastic. Already have our next visit lined up.

Service was outstanding. Tracy was polite, efficient and professional. Well spaced seating and fairly quiet. Crab cakes and salmon were very good.

Pleasantly surprised by how delicious the food was! The restaurant felt more like a bar atmosphere since the tables bordered the bar and steaks were quite pricey but we left very satisfied.

Brunch was tasty and loved the variety of mimosas. I’d suggest starting with a mimosa flight, then do the create-your-own mimosa bar

We ordered the Vday special: 1 bottle of wine, 2 appetizers, 2 entrees, and 2 desserts. My man has a gluten allergy, which he mentioned to the server, so he ordered the steak w/broccolini and mashed potatoes. I order the fried trout. We waited about 25 minutes for our food. After asking the server about our food she informed us that it was just finished and would be out shortly. When the food arrived, his food was cold and the steak was not medium well like he asked. We asked to speak to the manager and that is when we were informed that they re-cooked my fish without flour due to my man mentioning that he had a gluten allergy. In the process of them re-cooking my food his foot sat and got cold. The potatoes and broccolini were cold and we could tell that the steak had been put back on the grill as it was very charred on the outside. He tried to eat his food as it was but it just wasn't enjoyable so we asked them to make the whole dish all over again which resulted in us waiting another 15 minutes for his fresh food. As we were finishing our food the couple at the table closest to us had had an issue with their food. The gentleman's steak wasn't cooked to his liking and after waiting for 20 minutes he had to send his food back and wait even longer. I will say that my dish was good but the quality of service just wasn't to our liking.

Food was great. Drinks were not that good. However, the wait staff were very kind when we told them our drinks were not good. Seemed a little overpriced but worth it for a date night or special outing.

The food was average quality. The service was above average. Server courteous and friendly. The tables were not spaced apart sufficiently for COVID restrictions. Booth seating was placed next to tables on opposite side of divider wall (within 1-2 feet) of person on opposite side. There were no plastic dividers and walls were seating shoulder high. Coughing and sneezing customers basically sat next to you.
