Great restaurant! Music in the lounge 7 nights a week beginning at 6 p.m. Menu is very versatile and you can't go wrong. We've tasted many of their specialties and have never been disappointed.

For the evening you wish for more formal dining including real table cloths. Had the steak and enjoyed it with the accompanying "sides." Service was good and the food well prepared.
