Its like you stepped into blue hair central but you can really get a good meal here and great service. The inside is very dated but the food is high quality. My husband had the steak and grilled shrimp & I had the prime rib. The portions are huge and are a good value. They also have 2 sizes of beer pours...that's always a plus!
If I were to go back, I would get the Escargo....it looked so good. All the locals were ordering it. It came out piping hot, smothered in cheese with big garlic toasts on top. Oh well...next time!

The menu has something for everyone, but beware of the steakhouse page of the menu. We had the filet mignon and the prime rib, both were disappointing for the price. Others at our table were not impressed with what they ordered either. Our entrees were served approximately an hour after the waitress took our orders. Good thing we had ordered an appetizer. We were jammed into a corner near the speaker and had to ask to have the volume turned down. Waitress was friendly, but did not come back often to check on how we were doing. Overall, I give the restaurant an average rating because of qualilty/taste of the food, value was not there for the price, and atmosphere (restaurant could do with some updating).

Been going here for close to thirty years, food and service has always been excellent but the last 3 or 4 times it's been less than excellent. For the high price, it should be exceptional every time.

Really enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. Fireplaces seem to be near every table. Good value and attentive service.
