The food was great and the old war decorations add to the atmosphere. You can watch the small planes at Montgomery field land as it is adjacent. Wait staff is attentive. Easy to get to and plenty of free parking.

The extensive menu features mid-western aged beef and the freshest seafood. Here you will find USDA Choice & Prime Beef steaks, slow-roasted Angus prime rib, succulent lobster tail, fresh fish, rack of lamb, veal, chicken, pasta dishes, and fabulous desserts. Their famous Champagne Brunch is currently the #1 Sunday Brunch in the city on AOL's CityGuide poll and is not to be missed.
