I have been hearing about this place for quite some time and have been wanting to try it out. I finally got a chance to go for my birthday last week. You pull up to the outside and it is a green nondescript building. Nothing...More

This place was confusing..... looks like a dive bar from the outside ...... menu looks like a nice restaurant.... ambiance is somewhere in between. We stopped for a drink on the recommendation of a winery person or we probably would have never gone in. I...More

We were the first customers of the evening and were there less than 2 minutes after being seated warmly when we had to get up to leave. The smell of their cleaners or the electric Sentsy type candle at the entrance was totally overwhelming. My...More

The service was excellent. The decor is that of a mid century dinner club. Not what you would expect from the outside but nice. We had the seafood bisque that was overly thickened and heavy seasoned with nutmeg but the kicker was the imitation crab...More

Sometimes great things come in unassuming packages, This restaurant has been here since 1934 and the outside of the building hides a gem. Inside, it is a delightful, old-fashioned supper club. The food was outstanding and the service spot on. Even though there was a...More

Don't let the outside scare you off. Inside you will find a refined, clean, old-school supper club. The food was great, the staff and patrons were welcoming and friendly. Good service and good beer selection.

We didn't really know what to expect as from the outside it can be deceptive! But inside is a lovely restaurant with very friendly staff and delicious food. The decor is maybe slightly dated and they may need to up the lighting slightly, but that...More

Reccomended by the local motel. Very attentive staff. The inside decor was great as the 50's 60's or 70's go. Great music. Do not let the outside of the building keep you from going it!
