Hosted a dinner meeting. Only negative comment I could leave was that we were seated in a round booth, all 5 of us. Not the best option for a professional dinner.

We had a birthday dinner for my wife and a night of gambling. The steak was absolutely delicious. We ordered the New York strip and split between us. The size was large enough to share. The purée potatoes was good, but not excellent. The baked potato was much better. I got the baked oysters for an appetizer. It was delicious. Service was good atmosphere was good. Food was excellent.
