Pros: perfect location, has the ambiance of an old supper club like the ones I grew up going to. Seafood was delicious, drinks were made well, price as expected.
Cons: There was an hour wait (on a Tuesday night) and the hostess said we could wait in the bar area. The bartender looked completely inconvenienced and huffed "just find a seat, I'll find a girl to serve you" eventually one came around, she was very friendly and took our drink and bar appetizer order. We never saw her again, as she had a full section in the dining room. We flagged her down to cash out when our table was ready. Once we were seated, the view was beautiful and the server was nice but she definitely preferred to give attention to the two couples behind us who seemed to be on a business dinner and she figured she would get a bigger tip from them in sure. (She figured wrong, we are in the service industry). We had to ask a Busser for to go boxes, he had to ask us if we even wanted dessert and another random brought us our check. We left an impressive tip and saw her on our way out, she didn't even say thank you or apologize for not coming by. We paid $170 total with the tip and, silly us, we expected a little more from the service. The food was good, not exceptional but we don't have any complaints about the food. We save each year for vacation and want our money to be well spent, they fell a little short.

This is one of those places that locals know about and go often. I had the blue point oysters appetizer, prime rib, Rosenblum Syrah wine, baked potato, and cheese cake. The food was delicious and comes in large portion. It is a no BS place where you come here for food and large quantity of it (easily be 2 meals). The prime rib was delicious, buttery soft at medium rare, and huge in size. The rest does not disappoint. They are really known for their king Crab Legs and Prime Ribs so you have to try them. I highly recommend the place. The only downside about this place is that it can get a little crammed, but if you come here for the food, you won't be disappointed.
