Burger was good and the waitress was friendly and knowledgeable. The food was way overpriced, I paid over $80 for a salad, glass of wine, burger and wings, pretty steep.

The service was slow & disorganized. You were out of a particular wine that no one should run out of as it common. The chopped salad wasn't chopped! You use cheap bacon bits in your food that are like eating stones. Onion rings were sent back, etc.....
I'm shocked that the owners of St Elmos, Harry and Izzy's and my favorite water hole 1933 would have a restaurant like this.
We will not be back but I plan to return to the other establishments.
I brought 5 guest and have to say I was a bit embarrassed since one couple were my new neighbors!

Staff was very overwhelmed with large parties that seemed to keep adding people. Our server never came by to check on us, only came by to drop off the ticket. My daughter ordered the chicken sandwich that was all breading. Our other guest didn’t like her sandwich. Nobody bothered to come by and check so we had nobody to tell so we could get it fixed. For 80.00 plus tip, you’d think we would of had a better experience but it was no more than expensive fast food. My burger was tasty though. The homecoming. Very nice.
