We have been going there regularly for girls get togethers for a few years. We always went for happy hour however last time we were there we were told we couldn't sit by the fireplace and get the half price appetizers during happy hour. So we moved to the bar. This time we sat outdoors and initially our waitress, who... More

Been coming here for years and really have been satisfied with each visit. The dimly lit setting is very cozy and the decor is nice. Generally we like to sit in the bar - on a recent visit the NCAA basketball tourney was on. The food and drinks are delicious and the staff is friendly. Be careful as it can... More

When I came back from Iraq they made Shrimp Scampi for me. This time they said they didn't have the ingrediants. So we never returned.

We decided to try the Urban Grill and wow we were surprised!! The décor was great and the service was excellent. Our lunch was very tasty and fresh. My Ruben was done traditional with killer sweet potato fries. My wife had fish and it was done perfectly she is not a big eater but did a number on this. Then... More

This is our first trip here. When we saw the interior, I expected higher prices. We came over lunch on Saturday. The food came quickly with no errors. Our server was quite pleasant. I had bbq shredded chicken with sweet potato fries. There was a nice menu I would definitely return and recommend to others.

Love meeting friends for Martini's here. Campfire martini last time...a seasonal martini..had a bit of fireball kick and it was great! Chicken nachos are a great appetizer to go with drinks! A step above what you'd think of as a neighborhood restaurant. Love the fireplaces this time of year!

Excellent to all points of view. From service to the courteus managers. The food is excellent. The Crab Rangoon, the mussels, the ribeye out of this world. Fine french wine. Desserts fantastic. A must go. We were driving from WI to Branson, MO and as coincidence we found this great place. Don't miss it.

usually a GREAT place. Good food, traditional American and Italian. However, the last time was a busy night and could tell the wait staff, bar and cooks were not staffed... should have left, but stayed and the Italian Sausage dish is usually Graziano but tonight it was plain burger with spices like hot pepper seeds, etc. Not so good. I... More

This was a fun Friday dinner, though very crowded. People were waiting about an hour for their table. We had a reservation, but still had a wait of about 15 minutes. But the staff were very friendly, the food was yummy, the bar service quick. I ordered the Hawaiian ribeye, which was very tender and nicely marinated and grilled. The... More
