Full of worn, brown-leather couches and dark, polished wood, this room exudes an Ivy League kind of pomp. Yet when there’s a football game on, it quickly becomes about as dignified as a locker room. Artichoke dip and pizzas appease the fans, but the real finds are old-school staples, such as juicy, mushroom-topped London broil. Those football fans may come in handy if you order the chocolate cake for dessert—it’s so ridiculously huge, you’ll need at least a few of them to help you finish it.

To me, this reminds me of a really nice place you would find out in the suburbs. A little bit of that country club feel with cuisine that is consistent but nothing outstanding. The first thing I realized was how huge the place is. Two floors and an outdoor patio that wraps around the corner. Perfect for a large group or family event. The best thing on the menu is probably the fresh seafood, other than that this is the kind of place you take a large group if you're worried about finding something everyone likes. Service is great and the staff couldn't be more professional. If I had a bunch of people come from out of town for an event, this would be my safe place to go. I just think overall for the choices on's overpriced and very generic.
