- For a side, we were all about the sweet potato & pancetta hash… The sweet potato was a bit crispy and still very firm. With oh-so-sweet caramelized sugars covering each delicious bit. – The Watery Gourmet
- We ate steak, lobster, shrimp, whipped potatoes, and creamed spinach and everything was outstanding! Our server was very nice and efficient… – ChicagoSandJ, TripAdvisor
