We stopped fire som drinks and shared some small dishes. The food and drinks where good, the atmosphere was cosy, the staff was friendly. Bathroom smelled a bit funky though.

My wife dined on a Friday night and I got the prime rib, which was outstanding. My wife got the scallops, which were excellent but the portion was rather stingy and the accompanying corn something was not good. Good service and great atmosphere.
