Our family has always loved this restaurant! The food and service are always stellar! We took my Mom for lunch for her 77th birthday yesterday, and she was treated (and felt) like a Queen! Thank you, we greatly appreciate you 😁

Fascinating place, a slice from the past. Dinner was great, lunch experience, not so great. It's been around for many years and could use an update, stained ceilings... etc. Wait staff was fun and attentive. Dinner was prompt. Very meat heavy, old school menu.More
