Enjoyed the ginger sparkling cocktail; the colossal prawn appetizer was amazing; LOVED the lobster risotto. Two could easily feast on this large portion. It is chock-full of large lobster morsels. Dinner rolls were great. Service was superb. Fun, steakhouse vibe. Loved the booths.

But it was way over priced. Not sure if they jacked up the price because of the convention in town but $12 for a decent bowl of Mac and cheese is too much. The fish and chips were good and reasonable priced. Overall experience was...More

Curiously, the distance is always the same no matter when you go, but the time will vary between 10 (by car) and 30 minutes (by Trax), depending if you use taxi, train or automobile.
