Had a drink at the bar before we were seated. The drinks were made excellent and made by a very friendly bartender. Once we were seated at our table we were again greeted by a friendly wait staff. We ordered the Tavern Wings as an appetizer, what a super start to our meal they were made to perfection with a... More

We visited the evening of October 11, 2014 and have been away too long. Mike and Ryan have changed over the menu to the fall season and it shows in a very positive fashion. Lots of emphasis on vegetables common to the season such as squash's, darker meats (like duck), and the Octoberfest Prix Fixe are just a few examples.... More

We went here late Friday night after the cities Fringe fest. We asked if it was ok to sit and eat being almost closing time & they didn't mind at all. We are so glad we went. Such good food and service. Fresh and lots to choose from even for my vegan friend. Will return for sure!

All of our party of six had the surf and turf--steak and crab stuffed shrimp with different kinds of mashed potatoes and steamed spinach. It was excellent! One of us had a special soup that was tasty although it had a little kick at the end. Service was very attentive and the water glasses were kept full. We'll be back!

My husband and I went for dinner on Saturday. Started w the cheese & crab fondue and wedge salads. Fondue was very good, not as much crab as last time I got it here last winter. Salad was average. I got the schnitzle and it paled in comparison to others I've had. The meat was a little tough and the... More

This was our first visit ti their paring dinners and won't be the last. The four courses and wine parings was both delightful and "fun with some not so typical wine parings" as... More
