Nothing short of exceptional! We started with fabulous drinks at the bar, and continued with tasty appetizers. Had mouth watering steaks accompanied by a recommended wine, which paired perfectly! Oh, and Aaron, our waiter extraordinaire, what a pleasure he was!

Love hanging out at the bar with our buddy John, having some lemon drop martinis, some apps. Once you get past the "Pit Boss" feeling, all the surrounding staff are quite nice. This is the place you dress yourselves up for to spoil yourselves at.

The PR is a bus casual restaurant. They used to require jackets but most wearing jackets are old school
