The very worst. A terrible experience. With a reservation for 15 for a late Saturday afternoon lunch. We called ahead to make sure 15 was ok. We were enthusiastically assured it was. We arrived approx. 3:45pm to a fairly empty restaurant. Our "friendly" waitress took...More

This place is better than TGIF down the street but certainly not particularly impressive. Good sized offerings and staff was nice. Food was okay

The fiasco started with calling ahead to see what the wait time was (was told no wait) to being told that there was a 30 minute wait when we walked in literally 10 minutes later. We were seated and then ignored after our beverages were...More

Meet a prospective client here. It was a good open space to meet a client. Non-threatening and decent fare. Had a nice lunch and a very good meeting. Food was nothing spectacular. It fit the bill perfectly as a bar and grill.More

I have eaten here many times, and I have never had a bad experience. I love the burgers & shrimp and linguini. They make great mixed drinks. Usually I sit at the bar.

Went for a Sunday lunch. Wasn't crowded and sat at the bar. Had a nice bowl of clam chowder, and a cold beer with a great meatloaf dish with creamy mashed potatoes and charred Brussel sprouts. Good service. Moderate pricing.
