I really enjoy it here. We made a reservation and were sat right on time. My Mom and family had a wonderful time. Ashley, our server, could not have been more professional. It just seems like a really fantastic bunch of people work there.

The place is very warm ,the food is average, and the hostess was cold and Distant. She never smiled or exhibited any bit of hospitality. Because of her we will never go there again.

You can count on good food here in a charming antique with lots of character, and from some rooms watch the chefs in the kitchen. They have a nice bar in a cozy setting of living room and small table sitting areas. Lovely atmosphere, nice...More

To my recollection they only serve dinner. Most days beginning at 5 pm. There is a great bar selection and the ladies would love it, but no lunch time reservations.
