    1. If the soup tonight is Chicken Okra its amazing. Steaks are great, so are lambchops. Ask your waiter for the "special" baked potato not on the menu, its tasty. Martini's are classic. For fish try sanddabs. Enjoy :)

      1. I really like their Chicken Pot Pie, but they don't have it every night.

          A Martini and Welsh Rarebit!

          I've also had great prime rib there, but not -always- great.

          If it's just two people, I'd recommend sitting at the food bar with a good view of the grill.

            LATrapp, I agree 100%. Their martinis and welsh rarebit are the only reasons I go!

        2. Standard advice is to stick to the "grill." There's some weird stuff on the menu (or at least the last time I was there): cold canned asparagus, Jell-O, etc.

          I love the Diplomat Pudding, which is a cold custard with strawberry sauce.

            what is bread and butter puddin?

            and is the chocolate rum cake any good?

          2. Steaks & chops. Caesar salad. French fries, the thick ones (not the shoestrings). A martini, whiskey sour or sidecar. Chicken a la king, but only if you like that kind of thing.

              is chicken a la king like in a cream sauce or casseroley?

              if so i'll stay away.

              Yeah, the grill itmes are good: porterhouse steak, ny, french cut lamb chps or are the regular ones better, flannel cakes, the louise salads, hot turkey or beef dinner, boisullabaise marseille, corned beef sandwiches.

              1. re: kevin

                Yes, it's that kind of thing. Almost like the filling of a chicken pot pie, but without the pie crust.
