We dined in a side room rather than in the main dining area. There is lovely traditional decor, lots of wood paneling and a fireplace reminiscent of the older club restaurants in NYC. Our reservations were for 4 pm so it was quiet and conducive...More

We do not serve them on the buffet but they may be purchased in addition to the buffet. A single crab cake to add to your buffet would be $16 additional. Our dinner and lunch menu are available at 2:00 pm on Sunday.
