The service was excellent and the smoked bacon appetizer was outstanding. The ambiance was amazing. Where else can you dine under A bull moose shot by Teddy Roosevelt? The steaks were good but nothing special. Still a great place for a special occasion

Great place for business dinners. Expensive. Good quality meat (but I had better). The main room with all the pipes in the ceiling and the old time photos in the walls is something to see and enjoy. The porterhouse for 3 was perfect

Food was delicious, staff exceptional. Nothing more to say. Booking essential. Between 3 of us we shared a starter and main (thick cut bacon then the chateaubriand). All delicious. We will return for sure.

The mutton chops are amazing! Side dishes are big enough for 2 and it was easy to book on open table.
