This is a really cool old historic building. Have gone for great fish fry & shows here in past. However, I've recently heard they are not open daily for dinners. They are only open for reserved parties. It's really a shame too. So, if you're planning on going I would call first to make sure they are open.

I had the worst service at The Armory than I've ever had in my 50+ years. When I contacted the manager he told me, "I'm sorry you had a bad experience. I understand if you do not come back." No attempt at all to build customer rapport, when you combine his comment with my experience, it's actually comical.

I must say the food was real good. If you want a decent drink forget it at this place.Bartenders very rude. When a tip was put in the jar not even a thank you. Maybe she didn't like that i asked for a glass to pour my awful 5 dollar drink into after it was served in a small plastic... More

I brought my sister here while she was visiting from Nevada and we both loved it. The atmosphere was unique with the history of the old building included on the menu. The service was great and the food was very good.

We went to the new years eve show yesterday. The service was absolutely horrible. It was a buffet and we had to clear our own plates and get our own drinks from the bar because our waitress wouldn't even acknowledge us. We literally didn't see her the entire night until it was time to give us the bill. When handing... More

The osso bucco, the polenta, the veggies, and the tiramisu were my favorite things from the northern Italy Wine Dinner last week. Chef Troy really served up a 5 star dinner that night. We can't wait for the January wine dinner featuring Spanish wines. The menu looks super.

Service can be bad, food is good, but expensive. No more live music, no Sunday brunch. It used to be cool, and was open more days a week. Great place for a private party, but pretty quiet lately.

Great place to enjoy Spring or Summer on the patio. Service was very attentive and courteous. Wings on appetizer menu were perfect. Tomato soup is hearty without being overwhelming. Short ribs were cooked well and tender. I will have to come back to check out the Friday Night Comedy shows. Menu has nice diversity.

What happened Armory? I used to LOVE going to The Armory for mother's day brunch, but I have no desire to go back after this year. Right after I made reservations I had to convince my mother in law that this place was worth every penny, but I was so wrong. The buffet food and selection has deteriorated big time... More
