Cost is alittle on the high side but you get popcorn as an appetizer and the bread sticks are yummy with your dinner orders. Staff is kind and the place is always hoping but the wait is never that long. Love to go here for special occassions. If you haven't tried it I'd say come here once for dinner and... More

Good food consistently. Some times you have to wait a bit to get seated but its worth the wait. They serve popcorn and while it's kind of a bar atmosphere its kid friendly.

The decorations on the inside are very interesting and make it a fun place to eat. The waitstaff was friendly and personable. Instead of a basket of bread, they gave us a bowl of popcorn! It's a nice place to stop with friends.

This used to be one of my favorite places to go but over the last couple of years food quality have declined to the point the when I stopped eating carbs (the best thing they have are fresh breadsticks complimentary) I quit going. The last straw was they do not have any real butter to offer you anymore. Expensive for... More

Have visited this establishment many time for many years. Have never been disappointed with the food or service. I especially love their escargot and veal marsala.

Good all around menu. We have eaten here several times and have never been disappointed. Even the ribs are pretty respectable as is the perch.
