Meal was very good. I had the Salmon. Wine was good.
Appetizer of mozzarella triangles were a glorified mozzarella sticks. Nothing fancy for the cost. LOL. Seriously, that was my only issue with the food. My hubby loved the caeser salad. The dressing is made in-house and has anchovies in it.

It is fine ding, so it is pricey. But for a special night out, you should try. Nice fireplace in the upper dining area.

Downside was a lot of senior aged folks in bar and downstairs.

Came with some family to the Thanksgiving dinner that was here. One of my cousins said we should try it as she had eaten dinner here before and said her experience was amazing. So we all showed up and the place was decorated very nicely inside. We got to sit in the room with the fireplace which really set the atmosphere for us. The servers brought out all our sides and then carved our turkey for us. We got to have as much as we wanted so all of us ate until we were stuffed and then the staff packed us up some more to take home in a huge box it was great! Although I do not live considerably close to visit on a regular basis, whenever I do come up to visit I will definitely suggest coming here for the regular menu. A+ to everyone who works there and happy thanksgiving, we will all definitely come back again!

We visit this area often and try to support local business. When we saw Damien's Tuesday night special (2 for $25), we decided to give them a try. We arrived early 4:30-ish and made our way inside... though it's not easy as the 'front' door leads to just a stairway.,,so up the stairs (they do have a lift). then down a skinny hall, past the bathroom and then you're at the far end of the dining room, Strange couch in the dining room.. I guess you can sit and watch folks eat while waiting for a table when they are busy?? Strange that it's actually IN the dining room. Seems like it's just taking up room that an actual table could use to better serve customers. Anyway, no reception... just a shout from the opposite end of the room that we could sit anywhere. We chose a table by the window with a lovely view of the lake. We are soon visited by waiter for menus and our drink order. We ordered unsweetened iced teas and reviewed the selections for the special. limited, Kind of ordinary... chicken parm maybe, chicken fingers.. I don't remember the choices.. not even what I ordered (which should give you a clue). Strange commemmorative menus that 'you can take home with you'? We ordered and waited and enjoyed the view. Had to track down waiter for drink refill. Food arrived and it was fine... nothing memorable in a good way or bad. Had to track down waiter again for a drink refill. But the bill arrived immediately and with an oddly offensive comment... "Since you chose the special, a minimum 15% tip was automatically added to your bill." I guess they think since we came for the special, we were planning on leaving no tip. Too bad for the waiter, since we are minimum 20% tippers... even for bad food. So we left the automatic tip and departed. Deciding we didn't need to give them another go. BTW... no bottomless soft drinks on our visit, even though their menu states so. We were charged for every iced tea we had to beg for.

Decided to try this out as we have never been there before. needless to say I thoroughly enjoyed it. Not only was the food great but the people there were extremely friendly. Spoke to who I think was the general manager, who took our order as we were early. We had a great time. will be going back again.
