The prime rib is the feature and as it should be. Excellent cut and prepared exactly as ordered. The bartender was a pleasure to talk to.

Whatever you feel comfortable in. We generally say business casual but we have guests vary, from those who are dressed up going to theater, to those dressed for a ballgame. Both visit before or after these events.
