This is always a good choice for a good meal. It is never bad but consistently good. Not the steakhouse it once was but the choices are varied and tasty. A good bar and wine menu.

We visited mid afternoon on a very hot day. The pace was virtually empty, so the staff was not overwhelmed. The waitress was inexperienced and not very knowledgeable. I asked for a mug of beer, it took several tries to establish that the equivalent offered...More
