Had a wonderful family dinner this evening. As always, excellent food with very attentive service. Some nice additions to the menu as well. Don't let the construction on York St. dissuade you. Very easy to get there via Thames St (from Horton).

We invite you into our warm dining room and have a seat in in front of the fireplace or a lovely table overlooking the river. Our famous table side Caesar Salad is something you'll never forget and the best London has to offer. Our dinner menu has something for everyone.... pastas, steak, pickerel, lamb, seafood. You'll be impressed with the selection.

Enjoy live music Friday to Sunday every week ranging from our 3 piece jazz trio, to a baby Grand piano to guitar and vocals.

We look forward to seeing you soon.
