The staff is knowledgeable of the menu, service is friendly and the food is always very good. The only drawback to this location is that during cooler weather it is not handicap accessible. There is a street level outdoor dining/bar area during warmer weather only.

Went a couple times & ordered the chicken noodle soup. BIG bowl. Tasty. Wings fine. Desserts are homemade, so their selection is really good, different. Service was excellent. It can get noisy when the place is crowded.

First, the servers greet you like an old friend. In the background is this wonderful Dixie land jazz music. On the walls are portraits of actors, musicians, and athletes from the thirties, the flapper era. The food was great. My son-in-law had the "J. Edgar...More

This speak easy themed restaurant was a fun experience. They have lots of roaring 20s inspired cocktails. The food is tasty and the portions are generous. We enjoyed the linguini and meatballs, the crab sandwich, and a chocolate martini.

Good food, fun atmosphere with dining outside. Excellent menu to fit all palettes and a bit eclectic. Alcohol was pricey.
