Thank you so much for your awesome review. We're so glad you had a great night out with us (and happy belated birthday!)
Ample restaurant parking, plenty of seating, wide drink availability, and a yummy selection of modern, upscale takes on traditional American dishes. Friendly staff, perfect for dinner with friends or date night.
I recently had out of state business colleagues/friends in town and wanted to take them to dinner. One of the people has severe gluten intolerance so I chose Americana given the "gluten friendly" menu. It was an especially hot day, so we really appreciated the...More
