At $39 the Sunday brunch is expensive but was extra special. Unlimited champagne and high end buffet choices like custom crepes, fish boil, ribs, charcuterie plates, creme brulee. Order a custom omelette from your table. Crowded but worth it. Make a reservation and go early.

I recently went for an anniversary brunch with my wife. We had an amazing time. The food was delicious and they kept the mimosa glass full. I loved the service and everything was fresh and nicely presented.

This place is apt for bringing a date or for a fancy dinner. Lunch is ok--a bit on the pricey side, but food is great. It is also very popular for happy hour. Don't forget to try their own brewed beer.

I had decided it would be great to have "fish and chips" and a beer ... so this seemed a logical place to go. Not happening. Despite the down-home name, this is a pretty upscale place with prices to match. We had a drink and...More

In my opinion, food is average, nothing special or memorable for the price. Sauces have a can look and flavor. We were here for a company's lunch so they had several plates, sorry but nothing looked even appetizing to me even (and I like seafood...More

sorry, i did not see your question right away but the two answers were both right, two menus but pretty similar, prices are pretty much the same but really worth it.
