    We where excited to try this place, but after going we won't be back. The atmosphere is great and the menu items look good with a big variety. Problem is the food is blah.

    Blue cheese tomato soup was good just a touch too much blue cheese which over powered the flavor.

    Salmon dish was cooked good just lacked the flavor. The blue cheese potatoes also didn't taste like anything.

    For a sub $30 ribeye, you can do a lot better. Appetizer, drinks, entrée, sides were all sub-par. DO NOT order a classic gin martini. So many better food options in the area. Waitstaff was terrific.

    Great cocktails, and tasty pork entrees. Unfortunately most of my smoked pork was a bit dry, but one piece was juicy and amazing. My girlfriend's porterhouse pork chop was thick and perfectly cooked.

    Scallops and garlic bulbs are a must along with any of their beer. If you have room for dinner after that the fillet or tuna will finish out the night perfectly

    Try the Roasted Garlic Bulb appetizer. The garlic is roasted perfectly and balances well with the bread and goat cheese

    Wow! We've been coming here for years, and we usually have special requests. And didn't realize until tonight it was such a problem. Maybe we should go spend our money elsewhere.
