Myself and a companion had the open-faced ribeye special and it was excellent. Another of our party had a burger and she loved it. The only complaint, was one of... More

Out of the way but worth the trip . Very nice space with history and charm. Clean and not too kitschy. Really good service from a engaging wait person . Food was good and prompt , especially liked the red pepper soup. Went for lunch but would return because the also have a full bar. Lovely
