My wife and I visited this restaurant as it seemed to have some pretty good reviews. We did not judge it initially on the very unhappy female member of staff that showed us to our table. Throughout our entire visit we did not see her...More

I had heard about this place and thought to bring out-of-town guests since it is an historic place. The ambiance is terrific and the service is excellent but the food disappoints. It's basically pub fare but unimaginatively prepared and presented. The portions are gargantuan, for...More
