Classic decor, soft piano in the background, expert service, and delicious food. This is dining at its best. Forty years of perfection! I have never been disappointed with any aspect — a Baltimore institution.

Perfectly done medium rare with perfect seasoning. My wife always gets the prime rib, of course, and it never disappoints. Real au-jus. Not cheap, but always worth it.
