My wife and I join our golf group for dinner. We always choose the bar room because the atmosphere is a little more casual and the food is as good as the restaurant. The waiters went out of their way to take care of our group of 8! Plus the food was awesome as usual. These guys don’t miss the mark on quality!

Overall an unforgettable experience! Repurposed heritage seed mill ambiance sets the tone for a casual yet elegant dining experience. Charming and witty waiter, varied menu appeals to ALL diets while maintaining an upscale feel.
Caesar salad starter, sirloin steak, trout, focaccia bread, creme brulee, 'made in house' vanilla ice cream. All of it delicious. In all a beautiful evening. This could easily become an annual tradition for us!

Decor is spectacular when you arrive, but was disappointed from there on. Made reservation well in advance because of parents weekend. 2day prior I was advised that they are only offering a price fixe menu @ $55 pp before T&G. At this point, I could not find a reservation elsewhere.
Based on everyone’s rave reviews, we kept reservation. Wine list is OK, but lacking based on food offered. Agree with others that potions are small. Meals were warm at best. Crime Brûlée’s was served cold. Asked for coffee and was not served until we were done w desserts. This one is scratched off my list!

I dined here with a group of 6 total and the service was good, the food was average, but the portions were very small. I ordered a vegan wrap and asked for a add on side of chicken. I knew I would have to pay for it, and didn’t mind at all. The chicken came out on the wrap, even though I specified for it to be on the side. No big deal, however there were literally two tiny chicken strips on the whole wrap. I asked the waiter about it and he shrugged it off and just said “sorry about the confusion” and walked off. Everything tasted ok, but if I’m paying for extra meat I would prefer for it to be more than a bite or two. The wrap was rather small as well. I wouldn’t necessarily return here.

The steak portions aren't huge (12 ounce ribeye was the largest on the menu) but they're seasoned and cooked perfectly, with no need for sauce. We also had collard greens, steak fries, and appetizers of pork belly and fried oysters. All of these were excellent, especially the pork belly. I think the steak portions are probably ideal because there's so much to explore with the sides and appetizers. Service was very friendly and helpful. Although they have valet parking, it was easy to park in the designated spaces across the street in the administrative office complex.
