Not a good place. The decor is nice, the service is good, food quality is poor. Wouldn't go there again.

We have eaten at this establishment almost a dozen times. The food quality is going down hill fast and so is the service. I'm sorry, we have given it several tries on different nights and times but nope, not going back. And the home made dressing is actually Marzetti's!

Stopped in for lunch...nothing special. I had a Mushroom En croute which was mushrooms topped with 5 cheeses.( I expected mushrooms in a pastry so I guess my definition was different than the chef's).

The staff was friendly and our meals were very good. We also liked all the horse pictures on the walls.

Stayed at the Best Western Paris and went here on the suggestion of the hotel manager. What a great choice. Food was good and our server Chase was even better. He was friendly, knowledgeable and just down right pleasant.

We both had a cocktail on the patio right across the street from the "World's Tallest 3 Story Building" and a couple well done Thoroughbred burgers. The burgers were just the right... More
