We had dinner here before the theatre. Limited menu but we had no problem selecting our meal. I had the corned beef sandwich and my husband had the burger. Both were very good. Nice selection of moderately priced wines. Jacob was our server. Excellent service.

Really nice atmosphere to gather before a production. Service is quick and menu has enough choices to keep most happy. Good value and hassle free.

Myself and three friends recently had a pre-theater dinner. A positive is the convenience of parking once and being in the theater before the performance. We went on a Tuesday night and the restaurant was very busy which may have accounted for the rather poor...More

Our server, Benjamin was very nice and attentive. Unfortunately, our entrees were both sent out between cold and lukewarm at best. My husband was too hungry to send his back and ate his fish and chips at an underwhelming temperature. I sent my short ribs...More
