Phenomenal burger...very nice interior...felt a little bit under-dressed. Didn't know Covington had anywhere this nice to eat. Came on a Monday for half-price burgers. Couldn't believe how good it was. Amazing value.

Service was great. We started with the Brussel sprouts, which was very good. My wife ordered the short ribs and they were very good she said. I had the fillet mignon, which was prepared perfectly. Very nice evening. Nice atmosphere.
