I would give the food a 5, but the décor and ambiance as a 2. The servers were nice, but if you want some wine, make sure you let them know right away - it may take a while, The wine list is the husband, who says do you want red, white or pink.

The wine was OK, but the selection is small. The food however was terrific. We were ma party of 4 and each had different fish items - all great. They serve a pre prepared appetizer, family style vegetables and excellent potatos that are sorta like potato chips.

Be prepared to take a few steps backwards when you walk in. It is an old Frank Sinatra type bar and the dining area is Wisconsin Supper Club.

The key is the food …. outstanding

As always, a very good meal. Fresh fish and great side dishes. Fair corkage fees. Very conversation friendly

We wanted to check this restaurant out because we like the concept of supper clubs from visits to Wisconsin. We walked in the door and noticed a distinct stale musty smell like mold. Decided to check out the small bar to have a drink first. The bar looked like a combination of a garage sale that had leftover items. It was also smelly and stale. There was no bartender available so we decieded not to eat and leave based on the smell and lack of ambiance.

It's a GOOD thing I didn't pay attention to all of the FALSHOODS associated with this restaurant! Because I discovered a DYNASTY of DELIGHT...all through the night!

The GRECIAN Chicken is an oversized portion...the seasonings were exquisite. The patrons, owner and servers were pleasing and very welcoming.

Whenever I'm in TOWN, I'll be wisely dining at the CHARCOAL OVEN once again...smiling from "ear to ear!"
