Great place - old supper club vibe/appeal

The Roquefort dressing, fettuccini and prime rib were outstanding. The waiter was thoughtful and attentive to our needs.

The first impression was questionable but once we walked in the door all of the that disappeared. It was a warm and comfortable atmosphere with servicer friendly, helpful and courtesy. We ordered two meals, the Pasta with a side caesar salad and Blackened Salmon Caesar served with warm homemade bread. While I would love to give them an A because... More

Seafood bisque is a must! Prime rib good .I will go back. Outside looks plain and uninviting but once you step inside it will change your opinion. Check it out you won't be sorry.

Small and quaint. Family owned and service is a bit scattered but you can feel they care. Try the pan fried oysters and prime rib. Best we have had in years!

Don't be fooled by the slightly drab exterior. The moment you walk in the door the ambience is friendly with a touch of elegance. The service was excellent inside the restaurant then went off the scale when they dropped off the camera I left there at our hotel before I even missed it! Most importantly the food was superb. My...

It doesn't look like much from the outside, but inside is comfortable. The service was fine, food was very good.

do not be put off by the outside appearance (it looks like it is closed )when you open the door you are greeted by a quite elegant interior. the food is excellent and the staff efficient and friendly and we would recommend this place without reservation.

Stopped here on our way to Portland. So glad we did. Light fluffy onion rings, seafood bisque with a soft sweet bread, thick prime rib that melted in my mouth. We'll be back.

The food was very good....portions were plentiful. I had stuffed prawns, Mike had the fried prawns...or was we know them in Texas....shrimp. They were fresh and large, the bread was fresh and good, fresh asparagus as a side and potatoes. Everything was from scratch, I interrogated them intensely so I would not get a migraine...I did not get a headache........(except... More
