We had dinner here and enjoyed the atmosphere of the old library. We found the service people to be attentive and our food was very good.

I was traveling through town and stopped here as a result of trip advisor. Had the king cut prime rib which was like had a cow! Very tasty! The garlic mashed potatoes were dry. Price was a little high. Not bad for a good meal.

If your a beef eater you will enjoy this restaurant. Food is good, good service and decent prices. What is really different is that the restaurant was converted from an old library. High ceilings, lots of old woodwork and atmosphere. Give it a try when...More

Definitely my favorite restaurant in the area! The weekly lunch and dinner specials are always unique and enticing, along with the impressive new piano installation and live performances! Would recommend to anyone visiting from out of town or locals looking for a memorable experience!

"Chips" as in potato chips? No, I don't think that would fit with this lovely, classy place. If "chips" as in french fries, same answer. Do go and enjoy the food, though!
