We had a great dinner here, my wife loved it and she's a real foodie. Asked why I did not take her here earlier. Its a bit pricey but worth it for a great meal.

The Salmon was delicious. The two couples that joined us for dinner that evening were very happy with their entrees.

Reservations are definitely needed since this is a small restaurant. The food is outstanding, both steaks and seafood. Prices are a little high, but the quality is there.

Small restaurant. Good service. Food consistently good. Any fish dish is really always excellent. Steak entrees very good. Lots of home-cooked entrees such as liver and onions and even meatloaf that tastes like Mom used to make.

Food is great and salad bar probably one of the best. Call for reservations as they are hard to come by on the weekend.

Great small restaurant in the west end of Allentown. Make a reservation. They also cannot accommodate big groups without a reservation and even then it's pretty tight in there, but it's worth it.

Can't speak to parking but we were not thrilled by the food. Hard core local following but not for us. A friend whose opinion I hold in high regard prefers Youell's Oyster House on W. Walnut Street in Allentown. We've not... More

Will need to find a parking spot on the street. Best place is one block west of the restaurant off of 20th street. Parking can provide a minor challenge.
