The service here was just great. Our glasses were never even a few drinks empty. The onion rings are a must have appetizer. The meal was good. The atmosphere is very dark.

This classic restaurant is upscale dining at its best. They offer a wide variety of entrees and appetizers. I've never had a bad meal here. Their steaks are great but I highly recommend the trout and the mushrooms with chicken livers.

Lobster bisque is devine. Our server, Mike, was amazing. I love how this restaurant waits to submit different courses so all of your food does not arrive at once. Steaks were excellent and double chocolate fudge cake was delicious.

Took my wife there for a special occasion. Very expensive with poor quality food. Baked lobster was over cooked and tough. The batter fried lobster was tasteless.Good salad, good streak.
