From our fresh salads and lunchtime sandwiches to our steak dishes and gourmet burgers, we're serving a variety of delicious comfort food the whole family will love. We also boast a world-class bar that was custom crafted in the 1800s and now entertains and pleases patrons while they celebrate their special occasions. Whether guests are celebrating a rehearsal dinner or hosting a business lunch, our dedicated staff will ensure everyone has a delicious and memorable time.
