Succulent roastbeef, dessert and interesting atmosphere. A nice place to eat before going to shows downtown.
Good equilibrium between price and offer.

I saw this on the food netwrok, talking about how their roast for prime rib were aged forever and so delicious- I wasn't supr impressed by the prime rib but we went back for lunch and the beef club sandwich is to die for- a huge amount of meat so be warned but just delicious

I recently went to the restaurant and could not believe how much it had changed over the years since my last visit. My wait-staff did not seem happy to be doing their work. Everything seemed to happen in slow motion. Order a beer....wait....wait. Order food....wait...wait. Finally things are served with a "pitch it on the table" finesse. The energy seems all wrong...a lot of staff running yet a lot of people waiting. Go figure. Cost vs value. Overpriced. I will not be going back. There are too many really good restaurants nearby that actually treat you like they appreciate your business.

Years ago, when this place was a tavern, it was the place to go for lunch. Hamburger steak with pepper sauce, mushrooms and onions, with a good beer was a knock-out. Then the place was opened to women. They changed the basement and transformed it to a "Brasserie".
Now all of that is gone. And a part of the quality of the food. The place still carries a good reputation, but for someone who used to be a regular there, the place barely stand comparisons.
Too bad, I had good memories of lunches taken there. Good old days are over.
