Ambiance, food, customer service and outdoor patio are my favorites. You can't go wrong with their martinis either.

College-age son and I visited for lunch on the weekend. It was slow, so we didn't run into the crowds that I've seen there in the past. We both had salads and both gave them huge "thumbs up" reviews. Tasty, fresh, and good value. We...More

I have tried this "fine dining" several times over the years. And I have always found it lacking. Both the service and food quality seem to fall below the standard for the prices they charge. They used to have half priced martini nights and those...More
