Be prepared to have about a 30 minute wait to be seated on the weekends, but I promise the food is worth the wait. Once seated it took about 45 minutes for the food to be served, but our waitress was great and served us...More

Spouse and I were seated and ordered just prior to 10am on a Thursday morning in April. I did notice any large parties in the private room and the main dining was about half full. We ordered from the menu, then waited and waited. Our...More

I didn't eat there (I'm vegan) but I was trying to lure a swan out of the road and back to the river when a waitress ran out and handed me a bag of bread. That made all the difference and I got the swan...More

It was okay. I wasn't impressed after hearing all these great things about it from friends and family. I probabky would prefer a Coney island brekfast to this place, they at least would have been cheaper for the same quality of food.

Our meetings have been happening here for 15 years. The food is always good and it's very affordable.

We have been visiting TC for 20 years and ALWAYS make it a point to visit & have never been disappointed. I do get frustrated with the long wait but it’s worth it. Not good for kids due to wait times.

Wow. Talk about a let down. We arrived when they were on a wait, and don’t mind waiting. However, once we were seated, we continued to wait almost another 10 minutes before we were greeted and offered coffee. By the way, ordinary coffee was $2.30...More
