We have eaten at this old world restaurant twice. Same waiter both times - he has been there 59 years - fabulous gentleman. The service is superb - the food is wonderful. It is so nice to know that places like this still exist.

Horrible fruit flies all over the bread. Was told nothing could be done about it. Should close and be exterminated. Over priced. Do not order the lobster tails. Never again !
