This may not bother some. Just be aware if you are wearing vikings apparel you will be harassed to the point of great discomfort. I will never take my money back to this establishment. Very unprofessional.

I have eaten at the Goss for lunch and dinner. Food is always plentiful and good but the service is a bit slow. They are working on that part of their business to improve it.

Big, beautiful and still used for weddings, performances, small restaurant, meeting rooms. Many improvements/restorations have been completed and many more to come. It was very interesting and the citizens should be commended for preserving this lovely building.
