We went there for an early dinner so didn't need a reservation. The food was delicious. I would recommend the pork chop! We had apple dumplings for dessert and it was the best! Great service and great location if you are going to the theater!

We stopped in for cocktails and a light meal before the theater. The service was wonderful, they are very mindful of showtime, as it is right across the street from the theater. Both food and cocktails were delicious.
