This place has lots of potential but somehow misses the mark. The ambience is great but the food is just average. They have live entertainment on Friday nights but the place was empty. It could really fun but it is just… not.

This place is really pretty inside, an old bank with lots of really dark wood that looks so ornate compared to most places we see. The beer choices were all delicious and cold, just how we like it. My husband and I both ordered the same fish, mine seemed good- but not great and his was the same version served not very hot. Others in our group enjoyed the beef stroganoff and pot pie. Definitely some items on the menu that remind you of meals of the past, but other good choices as well. Felt somewhat rushed by the waitress, and also she did not seem to want to explain the different beer choices, but the ones we made were good.

Received a gift certificate and went to The Bank for the first time. The food was excellent and reasonably priced. The service was attentive. The menu is somewhat limited. Very busy on an early Saturday night, but got quiet by around 8:30. Could be a great place to go for a late evening meal.

Had a very nice dinner for four at The Bank. All the trimmings, drinks, appetizer (shared), salad, entrees (excellent), even dessert. Wait staff prompt & knowledgable. Wonderfully restored and decorated. $204.00 before tip..... I guess $50 per person isn't that bad...just snuck up on me. A tad exclusive at those prices - hence my 3 star rating.

The supposed "Iron Chef" is missing big time. A complete facade. Overcooked, greasy, poor presentation and overpriced dining experience. The best thing was our waiter Garrett (very talented).
