Great apps and beer selection

Hotel staff recommended this restaurant. We were looking for place to have quick late lunch and drinks between lunch and dinner and this was one of only options. We were greeted by a very friendly bartender who recommended bruschetta and their signature cheese fries. Both were great and the cold... read more

We ate there twice on our trip because everything was so great. I had burgers both times because when you ask for med well, they come out perfect, juicy but not bleeding. First waitress we had was just amazing, constantly checking on us and refilling our drinks without having to ask. Desserts were very good also, On our second visit,... More

I ate here with several other friends for brunch No one in my party seemed impressed with their food Personally I did not have the brunch buffet I ordered a burger from the menu. On their menu they said they were known for their burgers... I don't know why I've had a better burger at five guys or Johnny Rockets... More

Went for the crab cakes-ordered the appetizer and was not disappointed. Yum! Loud environment. The music from bar was loud in dining area- a bit obnoxious. Everyone enjoyed their meal. Waiter too quick to take away plates from table. Good service. Fairly priced.

Our group was meeting at the bar area around Happy Hour. The 'dance' music at the bar, sans dance floor, was so loud that it was nearly impossible to carry on a conversation across a small table. Repeated requests to lower the volume not acted on. In addition to the loud music the ambient noise of people raising their voices... More

We went to Front Page to celebrate my brother's birthday weekend. This is my second time visiting this restaurant. The first time, I only had drinks. It was one of the many places we visited that weekend. The food was okay, the drinks were good and the bartender at the back bar was excellent. Our reservations were messed up and... More

It was an extremely crowded place when we visited the restaurant. Service was very slow then but drinks came pretty good. Food was little disappointing considering the price we paid.

Went on a Sunday early afternoon for brunch. It was very, very crowded but the hostesses kept things moving and were helpful to me as I had my name on the list but my friend was delayed. We ordered off the menu. My friend had Eggs Benedict and I had the breakfast burrito. Both were very good.

At a recent dinner, my friend and I found the food disappointing. We both had one of the specials but the steaks were quite gristly and the sauce was a little too thick and heavy. The prices were good: $20 for the steak, with asparagus and mashed potatoes, paired with wine at $3 a glass. The acoustics were dreadful; it... More
