From the time we walked in the door, our experience was fabulous. The staff was spot on from the time we walked through the front door, until we walked out. We waited and wanted for nothing. The food was spectacular. I highly recommend this venue.

I have always gone after work, dressed in business casual, a bit under dressed when looking around. HOWEVER, I don’t remember hearing that they did not allow in anyone because of what they wore.

I think they have some decent options for salads and lots of their sides are vegetarian but not vegan. Think there was Mac n cheese, mushrooms, mashed potatoes. Things like that.
