Met up with some friends for dinner. Very good food but pricey and everything is a la carte. We had the. Beef salad, the hanger steak and the chicken with lots of grilled vegetables.

The food was very good, but I felted a littled rush throughout the whole night. Somehow are entres came before our bread basket. Aside from that, we both had a pleasant evening and would recommend going to a friend.

We had a party in the back room for our grandsons graduation from University of Richmond. We made reservation a couple months in advance and it was excellent for a large group. They can easily accommodate that number.
