Excellent meal, service and ambiance. Casual attire in a warm friendly setting. Prices reasonable for South Bend but quality fresh fish comparable to high end dining

Met a mentee for lunch. Reservations were honored. Mentee is vegetarian and menu did not state salad had bacon. They graciously re-made it and both of our salads were fresh and tasty. We requested more rolls...served.

I've been here several times when I'm in town and never had a bad meal or experience. I had the wild mushroom soup, short ribs and the chocolate tort all of which were phenomenal! Cesar(not sure of spelling) took great care of me and contributed to the wonderful experience I had tonight so thank you!

Very good atmosphere and the duck was delicious. Average entrée runs around 30 dollars but we'll worth it

Great service, excellent food and lovely environment. Value for money! The property used to be an old bank and has recently been refurbished to a high standard. The menu was excellent and good wine offerings. You can't go wrong and you won't be disappointed if you eat here.
