We went here to celebrate my 60th birthday last week. Aside from a little snafu about the reservation, which they fixed immediately, the whole experience was awesome! We went online and got the password and were welcomed right in! Our server, Oliver, was attentive and...More

Small group of us (six) stopped in for dinner, we were greeted and seated quickly with menus provided. Then our server disappeared for a long time. Finally we were able to place our drink and food order. Since we had so much time, we placed...More

Really nice place. Loved the fact that you had to give a password to get in through a hidden door. A bit like an old speakeasy! We were there for a birthday party and some of the party were a bit raucous however the service...More

Really unique experience. Caused us to look up some 1920s prohibition stories while at the bar. The prices are low and the food is in great portions and tastes great. It is excellent value. The bartender knew what he was doing. Not for kids. Look...More
