Amazing steaks in an old world environment (dark woods, etc). Good service although they brought out steaks in less than five minutes - no one wants to KNOw they Pre cooked the house special...still it’s great food and drinks and pleasant folks. Rarely a wait.

Still here after all these years. Nothing has changed, which is good. You get the same meals such as prime rib with creamed corn, spinach and yorkshire pudding. At Christmas time it is fully decorated. And full. Make reservations. Parking is tight.you won't be disappointed.

I would call the restaurant and ask them directly. I would think that would be the most reliable info. I would expect a Thanksgiving menu for a given price.
