Lunch portions are small. Steak on salad was tuff to chew. Jumbo lunch crab melt so small we joked it came from the kids menu. The food was very good, but overall not worth prices paid for serving size. and FYI: Parking is a nightmare.

They did have biscuits, I'm gluten free, but my company had them--stated they're not that good, sort of dry and a disappointment based on the level of the food.

It is definitely more upscale in the evening but I think it would be fine for kids to experience that.
