Two of us for a Sunday brunch. The smoked salmon Benedict was quite good. Service friendly and attentive. For most of the time we were there we were the only customers in the place ( arrived at noon). I would come back.

Private room at the back, table-cloth formal dining in the middle, bar out front. We checked out the restaurant via its 4-hr Happy Hour to sample the kitchen. The drinks are $5 each; there are 4-6 local drafts and quite a few "house brand cocktails"...More
