What a wonderful experience! The service was great! The food was even better. Hubby had the bbq chicken sandwich. Great sauce! I had the Lobster Cobb Salad. The dressing was fantastic....butter balsamic vinegarette with basil mixed in. The fall drink selection is delicious! We will definately be back!

We recently celebrated our anniversary and chose this restaurant based on the good reviews. We had high expectations and were not disappointed. Atmosphere: Somewhat dim lighting for evening dining was nice. The restaurant is small to mid sized and can seat maybe 75 people. We sat in a high backed padded booth which offered great privacy. They have a nice... More

Went for dinner with friends and love, love, loved it! Nice, warm atmosphere; plenty of room. Waiter was fun, funny, informative and helpful, very accommodating. Clam chowder was the BEST I've ever had...only problem is cups and bowls are not large enough!!. Cobb salad delish. Very reasonable.

My fiancee and I went here with a group of friends and family for dinner this past Saturday, and all of us enjoyed the food and atmosphere immensely. Our food choices included burgers, fish tacos, a Reuben, French onion soup, lobster Cobb salad, and more. Everything was hot, delicious, and served with good cheer. There's an extensive beer list, and... More

Although I've never had a meal here, I can say that it's a common place I get together with my friends for drinks. We love to make it our first stop and it's definitely our favorite downtown bar.

I meet friends on occasional Saturdays at Welcome Stitchery down the road and spend oodles of money on stitching stash, and then we walk to this restaurant to look over our new hoard and have lunch. I am addicted to their chicken salad sandwiches - so very yummy! The service is spotty - sometimes, it is excellent. Other times? Well.... More

This was my first visit. All of our food was fresh and super hot. The skirt steak chorizo risotto was creamy and wonderful. The service we had was outstanding. I do not say this casually. We always seem to get mediocre service where ever we go. We were blown away. I will definitely be back.

This is a cozy place to dine. Reminds me of some of the places downtown Chicago. Plan on taking your time with your meal to soak up the atmosphere. The steaks are outstanding!

Excellent personal service from the chef patron Dominic who was attentive without being overly so and let his cuisine do the talking.
