    We stop for lunch when seeing a play. I always ask for a booth. The last 3 times we were in we were put at a tiny table that is so close to the next table our elbows could touch. We accepted that table twice but last Sunday I refused it. We were moved to a booth. We have 3 more plays coming up and I already made the reservations for a booth at 12:15. Thanks John Zecca

    Food & drinks can be a bit overpriced, but you are downtown. Service is always outstanding! Love the waitstaff. I really enjoyed the mock tails, the Parker rolls- yum- delicious! The burger is good, this time I tried the Wellington burger & I would definitely get it again! So delicious

    Excellent food and location. We love the winning fish and chips, the Parmesan fries, the NY Strip and the mixed drinks. It will continue as one of our favorite spots in that neighborhood.

    Great choice before seeing a show at the Nederlander or the Cadillac Theater. Their menu is quite limited for dinner. I would have liked some sandwich choices other than burgers. They do validate, so make sure to ask. I will give them another try, but this time for lunch.

    Great location. We went for dinner before Chicago Theater. Tables are close. Noise is high but a great atmosphere. Service was excellent. The Parker rolls with Boursin are fantastic! I had short ribs which were ok. Pretty tough. I would order something different if I went again
