Excellent service and dinner! We were near Rockefeller and became hungry. We were seated immediately and greeted warmly. Each member of my family enjoyed their meal. I had a Reuben and it was spectacular! So much corn beef! Ordered a side of onion rings for the table and they were delicious! Now, we saw some people order milkshakes and they looked amazing but we did not have that appetite. Next time!

Atmosphere was lively, cheerful and comfortable for a child. The food was prepared to perfection, best scallops ever! Bourbon filet absolutely scrumptious. Also best key lime pie. Highly recommend.

We enjoy the brunch menu! There are many different options whether you want breakfast food, lunch, sweet, savory, or healthy options. The only draw back is the hot food was only warm at best (not hot). The value is a bit expensive because I’m not a big eater. But the variety makes up for the cost. I do recommend making a reservation or the wait time may be long.
