The food is amazing. The filet is very good. The Lobster Mac&Cheese is the best!!! The cheesecake is smooth and sweet. We will eat here again. Great to have it in our room after being in the road for 6 hours.More

I've no idea. You'll need to call them or check their web site. I just tried to make a reservation for 12/25 at 6:30 PM and the site indicated there was "availability", so maybe they are open.
