If you're looking for a place to go in or near Jefferson, there is nothing else on their level. Naturally, you will pay more than other options but this is by far the best food. Anyone who says different has an agenda.More

Takes you back to a more relaxing time seeing the tall ceilings, woodwork and beautiful rooms. The food was excellent; tender Allan Bros. steak and succulent salmon. Will definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone. vgt & mas
