The food was good although nothing exceeded my expectations. They have some great wines, and they are kind enough to let you taste before buying. I do wish we had eaten in the outdoor patio instead of upstairs, where I thought the ambiance was a little lacking. The patio looked absolutely lovely however, and it's a really cool old building....

The food was great! The staff is friendly and the service is great. The decor is lovely and the place is super clean. I can't wait to go back and try other dished. I would feel comfortable going to the bar and having dinner and a drink by myself. I may just do that soon.

It was our anniversary last night. Went to celebrate. We have been married 43 years and really appreciated the early bird menu with smaller portions. We can't eat as much as we used to. The food was excellent. We will definitely be coming back. I had the fillet and my husband had the walleye. They were both very good. We... More

Amazing food, good choices, upscale service and historic ambience. A wonderful experience. Two dining areas, up and down, with equal charm on both floors. The yummy warm bread was amazing.

This is our "go to" local place to eat. It's in a historic building with a lot of character. The bar is upstairs and usually has live music on Friday or Saturday evenings. The menu is outstanding - I've never had a bad meal! We love the setting and food so much we held our daughter's small wedding here. Tony... More

It was Friday so we were looking for seafood. We were so happy we found it here. I had an awesome seafood pasta dish and my husband had miso sake tuna. Both were excellent as were the cocktails and service. There was only one thing that I would change...and, no it was not dancing the jig upstairs! It was being... More

This restaurant belongs in Milwaukee. The food is amazing. I always get the towering inferno. You will not regret it. The atmoshere is fun and often times has live music. Upstairs seating is my preference. The staff are alsways attentive and pleasant.

Summer evenings lingering over dinner on the patio with live string music playing in the background. Heaven! The VERY BEST place to enjoy outstanding cuisine in West Bend!
