For dinner we ordered a plate of various meats that ended up having chicken, meatloaf (I think), steak, pork, french fries and balls of fried cheese (I think). It was all delicious (except for the meatloaf which I didn't try). I really wish I new...More

This place has everything you need. Service is fantastic, food is awesome, the menu is extensive, and if you don;t have enough to drink at dinner you can buy bottles off the shelf to take home. Bon Vivant is a frequent favorite of ours.
