We were staying at the Brown Hotel looking around for a place to eat besides the hotel and ran across the Marketplace Restaurant. We arrived around 4 pm and was concerned there was no one in the restaurant eating, usually a bad sign on a Saturday afternoon. We were surprised at the choices and quality of the food. I highly...

Very nice place next to the Brown Hotel, who recommended it. Good food, a bit pricey but a great feel inside with several differently themed rooms

On a recent Saturday night, 4 of us didn't have reservations & were seated in the lounge. Cozy, comfortable, and quiet. Our great server had us in & out so we wouldn't be late to the show. Food was EXCELLENT, and the cocktails were as well. Going back soon!

Had a great experience at this place. Wasn't too busy. I had the Filet and it was superb. Cooked precisely and melted. They also had Duck bacon which was to die for

Just a so so dining experience. Great ambience and convenient when attending an event at The Palace theater but way overpriced for the quality of the food. Paid $16 for a glass of wine that I can get for $12 at almost any fine dining restaurant. Food ok, just not remarkable.

We were seated immediately and our server was very attentive. The complimentary bread was delicious. Wine, drink and food prices are a little high. The double cheeseburger is delicious. Excellent service and very nice atmosphere.
