Nice place for lunch, dinner or just drinks. Large menu that can meet all moods. Extend beer and drink menu. Prompt service even though we had a large group. Price in line for the area of town. Gotta checkout the bathroom mirrors!

No- I'd suggest getting a private room at the bank restaurant - in downtown. Can't think of many other places that would have private rooms or areas
