“A delightful respite”
Reviewed August 25, 2012

The food and service were excellent. The interior was dark, very noisy, (though bereft of customers) and somewhat uninviting, but eating on the mall out front in the evening was perfect. The excellent Grilled Portobello Salad hit the spot, and the New Orleans Style Bread Pudding was... beyond words. I recommend eating the pudding first. No other food is necessary afterwards.

“Great service, good food, average pricing”
Reviewed June 25, 2012

We went early for dinner. The food was really good, we had the Shrooms, shrimp pasta and ribeye. The prices were slightly high, but the food quality was good. The service staff was excellent.

“Not bad”
Reviewed June 5, 2012

Food was pretty good- enjoyed the crab soup. Had a fish sandwich with a side of cole slaw which was very good and cold.

“Pricey for what you get”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

The food was just OK with big city prices. My husband asked for his prime rib medium rare and got it very rare. The seasonal vegetables, which are usually pretty boring in most places, were very interestingly seasoned. There's outdoor seating on the pedestrian mall and we started out there, but had to be moved inside due to a storm.

Great place for outdoor lunch. The Reuben was excellent and the IPA cold.
