Great quality food, a little pricey but worth it. Back patio is really nice. The restaurant has won a lot of rewards and has a lot of character . I highly recommend

A nice dinner house in an old restored train station; offers indoor (tables, booths, and some very private booths), patio and lounge seating - patio is lovely on a warm afternoon or evening. Food and service are consistently good.

I specifically asked for the patio because I find it relaxing. I accepted a later time than I normally like but I wanted the patio. We were not disappointed. It was a perfect evening. The food was fantastic and Jeff made a great waiter. Thanks
