Salad bar had a nice mix of hot and cold dishes. Cheese bread was awesome. Lunch meat selection was not extensive but prime rib, pork sausage and top sirloin were tasty. Waiters were not overly attentive and had to be summoned from time to time....More

This place was way over priced. The salad bar alone was $30. The drinks are NYC prices. The food was good, and the service was great just way over priced.
