I have been here numerous times - always during the day for lunch with a more senior crowd. This place is handicap assessable inside and out and very spacious. The offer semi-circle booths as well as round tables. Nice warm break and greek style salad is served family style. Their menu is extensive and also caters to a more senior... More

We arrived ahead of our reservation and were seated at the bar. No problem as we were ready for a drink. Friendly bar tenders and good drinks. Moved to dining room and ordered.

We didnt have reservations on a Saturday night, but we didn't need any here. The service was very good, but the food was just average. It wasn't bad, but nothing to write home about.

I tried the price fixe menu and every single item was delectable. A great place for a business dinner or just a nice family meal. The dress is more business casual but the service is fantastic! A great first meal in Brentwood!
