  • Ask for Lyle's Dessert! It isn't on the menu but it is by far the best thing you will ever eat.
  • Salmon was tasty
  • Corn soup was great. LOVE the wilted fresh spinach in the spin/artichoke cheese dip!
  • All Nighter martini is tops (best made by Eric).
  • Not too hungry: martini + French onion soup = cure for anything
  • We have never had a bad meal here! Staff is great! Outside dining is wonderful!
  • Beautiful ambience, wonderful food. Just a pleasant experience overall
  • Cool cocktail bar upstairs, great food.
  • Sat for 15 minutes and no one came by to take a drink order or acknowledge we were alive.
  • Half price martinis while the kids are gone.
  • Half priced appetizers every Tuesday for VIP Club members.
  • Took 90 minutes to get our food and not even an acknowledgment from the server, let alone anyone else. Almost like it's standard practice!
  • Meatloaf and filet mignon are both amazing. Half price martinis Th-Sat! Sit upstairs where it's nice & cozy...Alex is a phenomenal bartender.
  • If it is your first time going be sure to try the filet!
  • Half priced martinis all summer long!
  • Best creme brulee in the state!
  • Wedge Salad is the best app! Basically a meal in itself! Chilled Iceberg wedge loaded w/ blu cheese, tomatoes, red onion & crumbles. Can't go wrong!
