My husband & I celebrated our 33rd anniversary there for the first time. It is an amazing place with excellent service and food. It is very romantic and historic building with great entertainment. It is a real gem in the middle of Old historic McAllen.

The restaurant is just beautiful as is the Patio area. The service was flawless. (We ate an early dinner on St Patrick's Day.) The food- absolutely amazing and the portions were more than generous. I highly recommend the Tuna Tartare Tower and the Chilean Sea Bass in red curry sauce is a must!!!!

I had a great time with some colleagues for dinner here. I wanted something traditional to Texas and had the steak. I did feel the portion was kind of small but then maybe it was because I was hungry. The service was great and the food also tasted nice. Great place in all

I have eaten there on various occasions and have never left dissatisfied. The menu is extensive and all offerings are prepared to the customers preference. The bar has a wide variety of top shelf liquor.

My family dine in this restaurant for birthdays, and we all love here for their food, service, atmosphere, and music. Live music every time we were there, it's impressive. When tables are full, service is very slow and hard to get your waiter for a check. Usually they over cook my steak, so I figured out to go one level... More

Simple. Great place. Try it, for sure. Great menu, very "local" service, flavorful cuisine. Your pictures are all hung too high. :-)
