    Great lunch on the patio. Amazing sandwiches and burgers. They don't have a lot for the kids though if that's what you're looking for (besides pizza).

    They uses steakhouse definitions on doneness...make sure you order appropriately! Steak was good, but didn't seem to be anything special. Pretty impressive list of side dishes--hard to choose!

    Excellent service and ambience. See if you can grab a seat by the kitchen and watch the cooking. Grill room salad has my recommendation.

    They dont have ranch dressing. Odd, but they make everything in-house. Everything except ranch.

    I'm not one to leave bad reviews but if you have the chance, skip the grill room, though the service was good, the food was horrible, 30$ for the chewiest 9oz steak ever, and 4 lbs of bad fries.

    On Sunday night, reenter the madding world with martinis and a Porterhouse for two prepared "a la Fiorentina." Pittsburg rare with olive oil and lemon to dress.

    The burgers are incredible, but come with a mountain of fries. No joke. Way. Too. Many. Fries.
