This restaurant is next to my hotel, so it makes it convenient for dinner. I have always been impressed with the food and the service. Love the crabcake sandwich!

Went in for lunch. Ordered the corned beef sandwich- the meat was piled high. Very tasty. Came with skin on fries. Seemed a little pricey but not a bad deal for the area and amount of food. Will go back.

Okay, I have to admit that the name brought us in. We were very pleasantly surprised by the quality and preparation of our meals. A menu that will satisfy everyone as it did for our group. Steaks were perfect. Highly recommended.

It’s a shame that such good food could be ruined by poor service, but in this case it was. Our server was inattentive, rude, and completely disconnected. For this reason, I most certainly won’t give this restaurant my business again...not will I recommend it.
