This restaurant closed in January 2017 and is For Sale. It was a popular downtown destination and will certainly resurface because of its location and great patio area.

Closed as of late winter 2017. A shame. This was a great after work watering hole. Congrats to Gene and the staff for many years of solid food and service. You will be missed.

Went there for our anniversary last week expecting an excellent meal as it has always been great in the past. We haven't been there for a couple of years, but always had a good meal and great service. Not this time. Service was very slow....More

Brisket was dry, steak was mediocre, not sure why this place has such a great reputation. The food and menu really was lacking. In my opinion.
