Got a table on very short notice. We were in a hurry to see the nutcracker and forgot to have dinner. Beautiful place, great bread, wonderful steak, potatoes were fantastic, great beans were good. French onion soup was amazing, shrimp cocktail was good, very spicy

This is a really cool building in downtown South Bend a block off the river. The staff is extremely attentive to your every need. The food is good and has a nice presentation. It is a terrific option for dinner in SB.
