We had terrible service. I've been here multiple times, but the last two times (within 6 months) have been the same. The food was okay, but not nearly as good or expensive as they try to portray. Most recent time, it took 2 HOURS for our food to arrive. Arrived at 7, left at 9:30. They said there was wedding rehersal dinner at the same time we were there, but despite that, the service was still worse than it should have been. Stuffy room too. The decor is INCREDIBLY DATED. It felt dark and damp by the time our food came. Not great to be there late in the evening, at least in that part of the house. Bathrooms could use some cleaning or remodel.
I can't believe how many times as I have driven by this place if only i knew then what I know now. Friday night we finally stopped the restaurant was pretty busy but we where sat immediately we chose the dining room over there busy looking tavern. I was both surprised and excited by there menu I just did not know how I missed this place all those years. I had a Delmonico I honestly can't recall ever having a piece of meat so full of flavor in my life the onion and blue cheese topping was perfectly charred it was medium rare and perfectly cooked it came with mashed potatoes summer squash and a grilled ceaser salad that was also very good. My date had a Salmon Imperial I'm not a fish person so I did not try it but she said it was Awesome it came with rice and squash. Our waitress was fantastic the food came out just as we finished our salads and everything was nicely plated and garnished. This was the best dining experience I have had in years and I will be a returning customer
