Its warm atmosphere and classic aesthetic complement the cozy booths and tabled seating throughout the dining area. Though a bit small, the space is used beautifully with the tables spaced out to fit comfortably, and a big party is easily accommodated by using the long tables along the walls. Three giant screens have been built into the wall, presenting a warm fireplace to amplify the ambiance of a cozy setting with family and friends.
