We dine at the Packinghouse at least once a year (birthday or anniversary usually). This past visit was made enjoyable by the fine attention from our server Jordan. As we observed the other tables it was apparent that all the servers were well trained in...More

Food was good but they seriously need to look into fixing the air conditioning. We used our menus to fan ourselves through the entire meal. The waitress said that it was hot in there all summer, so it just wasn't that day. Next time we...More

Stopped here for dinner after an event we attended in the city. Food was good. We had steaks. It's not a steakhouse, but they are aged and were tender. Salad bar was great! I'd go back but I'd maybe try one of their burgers or...More

And that is usually a very good sign. This restaurant is in downtown, literally across the street from the Amtrak Depot. We shared a BIG burger and it was great, plenty for both of us. They make the burgers from 3 different cuts of steak...More
