Very small, so reservations are a virtual must. The service is always attentive and the food never disappoints.

I go to Blighty's about once a month. The food is wonderful and the steak is 'to die for.' Owner/Hostess Rachelle is always pleasant and takes a real interest in her customers. The menu is limited but everything on it is delicious. Reservations are recommended.

This is a small restaurant so I am not sure how many people it can serve. But I do remember a rehearsal dinner was going on when we went there once. They can seat up to 40 people. The owner, Richelle is a wonderful, friendly... More
