Ok, so here is the bottom line. Very nice menu with focus on beef entrees but certainly not exclusively. Also, nice starter, salad and sea food items. The thick cut bacon starter is fun and flavorful. Wedge salad and the crab meat & avocado salad...More

Over the bridge on Wabash to Kinzie turn left. Up the road about 4 blocks on your right. However long that takes you to walk. I would say at least 20 minutes if you are taking a leisurely stroll.

Yes, an extensive wine list. However, if you would like to bring your favorite bottle of wine there is a corking fee BUT if you share a glass of wine with another patron or your server the corking fee is waved.
