Service
 
From "socialites and politicos" to "frat boys and sorority gals" , everyone comes to these "reliable" , "comfortable" American hangouts to "meet friends for a drink and a burger or a steak" ; because there's "almost always a full house" of "colorful" "regulars" , table service "varies" , but you can count on "friendly barkeeps."

Solid, classic style bar and restaurant with bar tenders that can make real cocktails and a kitchen turning out reliably good eats. Don't let the dated sign or 'saloon' title fool you, the food is excellent. The menu features many familiar favorites like pork chops, scallops, deviled eggs, and seared salmon, all prepared in a classic style with just a small, unobnoxious twist (unlike some places that try to reinvest familiar foods and wind up ruining them in the process).

Nice place to meet people and eat and dine and i never tried there food yet. Crowd there and nice place to drink at night and social and people there are mature and sober and good place to meet people. Lots of group friends and certain few single people there at times and nice place to meet certain women in leather and are lots of business professionals there to and network. People just wanting to have a good time and night there to and a good place to go at day and night.
