We always enjoy our dinner and the service is what is exceptional.
Your staff couldn’t be more accommodating. The food could get a higher rating (in my opinion) if the food were more consistent.
It’s the temperature that sometimes disappoints me. Burgers over cooked, Sides cool rather than hot.
I hope this is constructive and would not wish to complain, we will be back!

We had a great night out fr our Anniversary. Our server was great -very friendly and attentive. The food was excellent and the glasses of champagne at the end was a perfect ending to our night!

Food was tasty, had obviously been prepared with care and was reasonably priced. The room was country tavern comfortable and not noisy, which is a problem in many restaurants these days.
The one negative was that the person who seated us, a couple on a date, offered us a table in a dark, crowded corner. When I objected, we were seated at a quiet table by a window.

Went there first time tried to order prime rib special all sold out at 730. Then to make matters worse it took almost an hour to get our appetizer. Heard others in the room complaining as well. Noise level was on the high side at first as people left died down some. The food and drinks we ordered were good as was our waitress. Was just a shame we had to wait such a long time for appetizer then our meal. Would of been nice to have had some bread and butter or something to munch on while we waited. I will try this place one more time to see what happens

Portions were good, I liked my stuffed sole but my daughter said her chicken was rubbery in the pasta alla vodka.My husband liked his steak a lot. The snickers pie was excellent .

What a lovely tavern! Roaring fire on a blustery day, fresh and delicious food and drinks. The pirogues are a must have, must share appetizer- laced with crispy crumbles of bacon and caramelized onion-the house specialty, in our opinion. Shrimp skewers and beef skewers were a hit, too. And the Moscow Mule and vodka martini were perfect. Only downside was a distracted waitstaff. Absolutely will go again.

Well, It's quite good. I had the steak with the Jack Daniels sauce. Very good. I didn't like the mashed potatoes but that's my problem. The onions and broccoli were very good. I also had the Caesar Salad. Was a little lacking in dressing for my taste but still good. Drinks were good and house wine served was OK without being special. My wife had the house salad and the broiled tuna. She said it was fantastic. Now, if only the wait staff would grow up and not call us guys like we're their friends, same age and equals. We are not. We are over 70 years of age, been through life, raised our children etc. We are not GUYS! We have earned the right to be called Sir and Madam or Ma'am. If you know us you can call us by our names (maybe in the future). We do not want you to hang out by our table, but we do want you to notice when a plate or drink is empty and take care of it. For your effort we will tip you at 20%. If you haven't earned it we may consider another restaurant. Earning your tip will encourage us to return. Remember, TIP means 'to insure promptness'. That meaning no longer means anything. The tip now is part of your wage. So earn it. Yes, we will return. Hopefully this review has been read and applied.

The penne alla vodka with chicken was mediocre. The other dishes we had (crab cakes and fish and chips) were good. I guess that the classic "tavern" food is the thing to order here, not the fancy stuff. Ambience was really nice, and the waitress was very attentive.

Disappointed. They were out of the Saturday night Prime Rib special. The new York strip was cold, probably because it took so long to get served. The huge serving of mashed potatoes were tasteless (straight out of a box?).
