A Friday night, two couples out for dinner. Mid-October, so we wanted to leak peek around the area. We live about an hour away, but with traffic, it took us longer to get there. Our reservation was held, we were seated immediately. Two Antioxidant cocktails,...More

It's a comfortable place, TVs for sports shows, but not in your face. Food is varied, pub food to burgers to pasta dishes, to prime rib and seafood. Huge portions, tasty food. Nice people, friendly staff. Not the cheapest place, but not overly expensive either.
