This is the "go-to" restaurant for dinner after seeing a performance at Drury Lane. The atmosphere is warm and inviting and the menu is complete with every type of dinner offering imaginable. Ask for the tables along the windows for more privacy. The carrot cake for dessert is worth the visit - so rich and gooey.

Well thought-out menu. A great place to take a date. Excellent bar. A little on the loud side, but still fun.

So the key here is a post-9 pm reservation on weekends. If you make one in the 7-830 range the reservation means nothing. You will have to wait. We came at 915 on Saturday and sat right down. Had a fish sandwich which was good although no tartar sauce which was odd. My son had the tuna steak which was just ok. I saved half of the sandwich for lunch but when I opened the leftover container the top bun was gone! We will come back...late in a Saturday!

The food and service are great! many options (except desert's) for each taste. Main course steak's are great. Last visit i try the Hamburger and it was very good. Artichokes first plate came burnt and there was no problem to replace it. A place that you can come again to enjoy.

Great lunch spot. I had the Caesar and clam chowder. Both excellent. Service was perfect too. Not inexpensive but a very nice place. You have to get the carrot cake. It’s warm and made with coconut. So delicious.
