We had reservations and after looking at your menu on line, we cancelled them. I don't mind the high prices, but I've never eaten anywhere except cafeterias where you are charged a la cart prices for everything on your plate. Sounds like a buffet to...More

If you're not that hungry, but want great food at happy hour prices, then go to Ruth Chris before 6. Food and service was excellent, and 1/2 the price of the normal dinner meal. I had a great time visiting with friends there.
