First things first... The menu. If Cal himself hadn't translated it for me, I wouldn't have understood. He said this was a "catering menu". I wondered how many people who walk in to order lunch are secretly wanting to cater an event? The place needs...More

Well I had to try this place after all these great reviews. I was not disappointed. The red pepper smoked soup was out of this world. Also the prime rib was tender, juicy and full of smoked flavor. Desserts are ok but I would just...More
