Really good food. Has a lounge and a dining area. Prices are reasonable but in the higher end. Not a lot of options for large groups (greater than 8).More

I like going here when you need a quieter place; either a business lunch or to meet your paramour. This time it was a business lunch. I had the hot roast beef open-faced sandwich. It was within budget, quick and satisfying.
