One salad and two sandwiches. Everything was good overall. The sweet potato tater tots were absolutely fabulous, I would go back to get them again. The bun that came with the tuna sandwich made for difficult eating. It was too dense that you couldn't cut it without destroying the tuna; the knife could hardly get through it. Trying to bite through it caused the tuna to get smashed and jump out the side of the sandwich. A really good server would have noted that the sandwich was taken apart, left laying on the plate and would have asked if everything was OK.

Not horrible enough to not go back, but I would definitely be ordering something different

This is a great place. Service, food, beer selection, atmosphere all top notch. We go every time we are in Normal for business.

We have dined here 4-5 times and unfortunately each experience has declined. We had a very long wait for our entrees and the food was not worth it. The red pepper fettuccine was very bland and much in need of seasoning. My butternut squash ghocchi was probably the best out of our three entrees. The barbecue brisket very dry and chewy. The lemon curd tart flavor good, however the meringue topping very gritty, the sugar wasn’t dissolved. I keep giving this restaurant a chance due to the convenience of being near campus, but I think I am done!

Delightful experience. Excellent cuisine, great service, and the noise level (although often too loud for us) was more on the modest side at the time we had dinner--6pm.

We were a small party on a Sunday evening. Reception at the door was slow, but the table service by Kalen was very good. Menu selections were varied; something for everyone. Prices are reasonable. I had the Chef's Special - a ribeye steak which was excellent, perfectly cooked, along with two tasty vegetable sides. My wife had a red snapper which was unfortunately overcooked. The other guests had satisfactory pasta dishes. I will give this place another visit just based on my meal alone.

I asked for fresh-cracked eggs and received Eggbeaters. The switch ruined the entire omelet. Not one of the four at the table could eat the peppermint cheesecake! (Didn’t taste “right.”)

Really liked the ease of making s reservation online. Very nice.
