“This hidden gem, nestled along the tracks with a pretty flower-laden courtyard for dining, is one to put on regular rotation. Modern and chic, the dining room, with its rotating art selections, dark wood seating and black leather half-banquettes that sit below an inset circular ceiling, is a great place for power lunches and weekend dates. The lounge, which is separated from the dining room by a state of the art glass wine room, is perfect for grabbing quick bites and craft cocktails. As for the food, it's hard to lose. Among starters, the crab cakes and margherita flatbread are rivaled by a French onion soup that's better than what you find at most French bistros. An absolute must to follow is the cedar plank salmon, cloaked in a teriyaki glaze and served with mixed veggies and shoestring potatoes. The steaks, ribs and bourbon-glazed pork chop are no slouches either, especially when paired with a glass of wine from the extensive but approachable wine list.”

Average restaurant. Not good, not bad, simply place to eat without any distinction.

The mixed drink menu was a little limited. Overall food was very good. Nice size portions. There was definitely an issue with drafts in the back section of the restaurant.

This restaurant seems to inprove with each visit. Nice menu variety. Both of our dinners were well- presented and very tasty. The server was attentive and pleasant. Separated bar area and live music on weekends. We will be back.

It is sad to see this restaurant constantly trying to find itself. The food was good and service was fine but just feel like this place keeps reinventing itself and is not finding its footing. I was told there was a brunch menu but there wasn't and that was a main reason we came. The music is hard rock. Doesn't fit the place. It needs a good manager who really cares to make this place what is was before it became MLG

Have to admit, this dining event was not nearly as good as our first experience at MLG. The server was tied up with a big party and we were a bit of an afterthought. Had to ask for everything including drinks. Food did not come exactly as ordered and the Gumbo was mediocre at best. Will likely try again, but hope the next time will be better.

Food is always good. Wish the menu had more choices on it as it used to. Also our server seemed a little distracted and sharp to her customers. Maybe she was having a bad day. Will be back!

Have recently moved to the area and we are trying to go to as many restaurants as possible to find something that could become a regular haunt. We are British and are used to dining out in good restaurants where children are welcome but also aren't fed the usual rubbish of hot dogs! We liked the atmosphere here and the food was solid. My kids said the calamari was good so that was a win!
I had the burger - it was good!
We will be back and I want to try their family dining which looks great value
