Chili-Lime "Brick" Chicken is wonderful!

Friends brought us to this very busy place! We waited about an hour for a table (even the bar was full), but were able to pass the time sipping drinks in the waiting area. All our meals were good. The waitress recommended the chicken. I was hesitant as I usually prefer only chicken breast, but it... read more

Name the places you can take 3 generations, and please everyone.... Name the places you can find classics and nouvelle cuisine... name the places you can bring your Tori Buch, Birkenstock, Eddie Bauer and St. John friends and family and satisfy everyone.... This is it.... parking is valet... cumbersome, but hey....

It's not always true that a restaurant is consistent time and time again. The Buckeye is an example of a recipe that you just don't want to change. Food deliciously consistent, service from the front reception to the wait staff is professional and flawless. On a Tuesday night, midweek- the restaurant was packed with tables turning over around us. Compliments... More

I've eaten here several times because friends have chosen it. Some of the dishes here are good, and some are mediocre. The food is unimaginative, and the prices are quite high. I've never understood why this restaurant is so popular, but it is. The parking lot is always packed.

Very nice looking restaurant from the exterior with charming details that should put it in one of those Thomas Kinkade paintings. Parked on the street to avoid the good 20 minutes for the valet parking system to sort itself out. Admittedly, this was probably one of their busier days but it's always a good indicator that if the front of... More

We waited 9 minutes before our server, Jessica greeted us. We were never offered water. We ordered an appetizer and our meal. At no time, did she ask how the appetizer or our meal was. She never offered dessert but just placed the dessert menus in front of us. She returned 5 minutes later and smiled, never spoke to us... More

Terrific place. Busy, nice crowd, good service. Delicious sea bass...and fresh oysters on the half shell. And onion rings. Did I mention top quality desserts? First time here... I loved it.

Pork chops were very good, but a little fatty. Forever, the polenta was amazing. Our waiter was very informative and very kind.

We love the activity and service in the bar. In we often eat there if we cant get into the dining room because the menu is the same. Reservations are a must. Anything smoked and BBQed is a winner

This appetizer was one of the best I ever had, don't miss it even if you don't care for oysters. Delicious! The steak, the ribs, the side dishes - all were great. The atmosphere, warm and cozy, and since I am from the Buckeye State, I felt right at home.
