Wait staff were very good - friendly & attentive. Food was above average on quality, but below on value for the money spent - it's a bit pricey for what you get. Location is good, but parking can be a challenge.

Clearly a popular spot! Nice outdoor area where we had a drink before dinner. The staff was terrific! The filet minion was perfectly done and beautifully presented. Apparently their meatloaf is a favorite and we were not disappointed. The only down side was the pasta...More

While I wouldn't call it "kid friendly", it would be fine for a teen.
