You probably will need a reservation to get into this restaurant on a weekend for dinner. Wonderful salad bar with the best mud pie in the world.

This restaurant is always listed in the top tier by locals and while it is good, it is far from great in my book. Inside it is dark and small with too many tables and chairs and multiple small rooms. That wouldn't be so bad if you stayed in your seat but since everyone goes to the salad bar it can sometimes fell like people are walking all over you.

Virtually everyone orders the salad bar which is good and freshly stocked on a regular basis. The line can get long so you might have to stand in line for a few minutes which can cause issues for some of the tables that are close. Locals love the fact that the bar always offers caviar yet I don't know how many people actually take any and the caviar isn't the greatest. Sometimes it is all about the hype!

The menu hasn't changed in years but they do offer daily specials. Years ago I thought that the menu written on giant meat cleavers was fun but now it seems dated and darned heavy! The food is good and the menu is pretty standard. You can get a decent steak cooked the way you want it or a nice piece of fish. For this you will pay a bit over average price.

If you want to impress a local, then take them here. Beware, you will need a reservation and they fill up quickly. Everyone will leave full and happy. Just understand that there are better places to eat and to spend less doing so.
