The name itself conjures a smokey bluesy image all its own, but this establishment now appears to be barely sustaining on its name only. Ripe for potential (or past evidence of it) the lower level is warm and inviting with mahogany everywhere, and older accouterments that scream for the old life-style back. Piped in music was Simon and Garfunkel, not that it was bad, just not what was expected or desired in this type of establishment. And the food...just fair. A simple steak and pasta meal was delivered within 5 minutes, which should tell you the state of everything on the plates; I wasn't impressed, nor was I with pricing, and while I'll admit I went in for the experience and knew I would pay for it, I came out $100 poorer with only a sigh for the man who used to make this place hop. Not worth the trip for any reason other than hoping to prove this reviewer wrong, to which I would be VERY grateful.
