Lots of variety of items on the menu, great wait staff, medium priced food, but always prepared perfectly and nice paced service. It is a bit of a wait for dinner, approximately 30 minutes and there is no eating at the bar.

Older restaurant but the food was good and the servers were excellent. I had a nice halibut and clam chowder soup both very good. It was it $$$ but worth it.
