Our party of 5 visited on Saturday, 5-3-14 and had reservations for 6:00 pm. Parking was a matter of good fortune as there were a couple of diagonal street spots left just across the street from the restaurant - the expansive lot behind the restaurant was full.
We were promptly seated at a table that was designed for 4 but would accomodate 5 with one of us at the head.
The new bar is a large oval that extends into the original dining area. The hard floors and wood paneling throughout made for a remarkably noisy dining experience. Our two older diners had to turn their hearing aids down in response to the sound level in the dining room.
Service was prompt and efficient. Three of us sampled the original preparation ribs and were well pleased with the sauce spice and succulent fall off the bone meat. Two ordered the 1/2 rack and I ordered the rather generous full rack. A little filled from the excellent dinner rolls and half the house salad side, I was only able to eat about 1/4 of the full rack. I spent much of the rest of the dinner removing the meat from the bones for use in a homemade pulled pork pizza that we enjoyed on the next evening. One of the seniors enjoyed the Reuben Rolls appetizer as an entre and my wife had the Chicken Schnitzel which she found to be fair.
We sampled the desserts and while all were quite tastey the vanilla ice cream that accompanied the cake offering was fabulously creamy and flavorful. Can't recall a restaurant ice cream experience in quite a while where the vanilla ice cream was so good.
My son tried the Chambord Ice Cream drink and while quite pricy at $9.50, it was incomparable in flavor, appearance and texture - using that marvelous vanilla ice cream.
On our drive home, I remarked that the memorably loud dining experience was clearly tailored for core Harley-Davidson customers whose hearing is gone thanks to years of riding with loud exhaust pipes.
