The Derby is more than a restaurant. Established in 1922, it has been family owned and operated since 1951. It is a grand museum showcasing some of horse racing's greatest moments. Diners are invited to take a break from the rush of modern life and travel back to the time of George Woolf, Seabiscuit and relive the excitement of <u>The Race of the Century</u>. We excel in offering the best grades of meat and extremely fresh seafood prepared by our longtime executive chef that would delight even the most discriminating of taste. Some of the menu highlights include the Bacon Wrap Filet, Delmonico New York, Prime Rib and Shrimp Scampi. We offer a wide selection of wines by the bottle and by the glass. Relax and enjoy a fine cognac or single malt scotch on our patio, or take in a sporting event on one of our three new plasma screen television sets. Dining at The Derby can only be compared to the feeling of holding the winning ticket when you smile and know that you made the right bet.

"Had lunch with friends at The Derby. It was restaurant week and the Derby specials for this week were great. I had the crab cakes, cobb salad and crab cakes. All were very good. Service was good and professional. I enjoy The Derby and it is great for special occasions and times when you want a really good meal."

This is American Regional Cuisine at its classic, pub-inspired best. The food is fun and what we like to call “approachable”. You’ll also enjoy some twists on the classics with taste-inspired ideas like our Dirty Caesar Salad and Greek Turkey Burger. At the American Tap Room we believe in using local ingredients as much as possible and, yes, everything we serve goes well with beer.<br /><br />Ranging from weekend brunch, to a casual lunch outing or an after-work gathering in our bar, each dining experience is uniquely enjoyable.<br /><br />Enjoy your time with us on our outdoor patio, inside by the fireplace, or by booking a private event.

"Had the chicken and waffles. Large portions but average quality. Chicken was way overdone but waffle was good. Service was excellent."

"Had dinner at Paladar on Friday night. The food was good with lots of different choices and options. The drinks were smallish but good. The issue was the service. It started off good with the server getting drink orders and appetizers relatively quickly. The seafood ceviche is very good. A small portion, but good. The next hour our server was missing in action. The drinks were done, the appetizers finished, and no server to order entrees. Every once in a while, she would glide by and apologize but still not take the order. The restaurant was pretty full, but there is no excuse for almost an hour of no attention. So, overall a good experience but not if you are in a hurry."

"First time at MHBC. The service was not good (trying not to say terrible). Waited 20 minutes for water, another 15 for menus, and another 15 or so for drinks. Was there almost an hour before ordering food. Three waiters walked by us, waved at us, asked how we were but provided no service (eg. they would ask how we were, would respond that we would like drinks, the server would walk away and not return). Very odd.
The menu is very interesting with lots of different sausages (made on site), beers and pizzas. Had the lamb appetizer, "fig and pig" pizza, kielbasa, and chocolate cake dessert. All were very good.

With the look and feel of one of the "Great Camps" of the Adirondacks, Tower Oaks Lodge serves an American-style saloon menu. Adjacent to a 21-acre nature preserve, Tower Oaks Lodge is located just off I-270. The raw bar features oysters from both coasts.

"Clyde's is consistent, good food, service and atmosphere. The lamb bolognese is good (not great). The restaurant was crowded with recent high school graduates yet the service was still good. I have never had a bad experience at Clyde's."

"Had the chicken and waffles on a Tuesday (in an empty place, only 4 other customers). I am from the south, and the chicken and waffles at American tap room would not be acceptable in my hometown. Chicken was over cooked but waffles were good. Maple syrup was fair at best. Should have had a sandwich. Service was good."

"The service was outstanding. The manager and the server waited on us and did an excellent job.
The menu is limited to pizza. Lots of choices if you like pizza. There 3-4 salads and 4 entrees in addition to the pizza. I had the brick chicken which was very good.
Desserts are limited also, 4 choices. Had the apple pie but they have no ice cream. It was good but nothing like warm apple pie and ice cream.
Overall, good experience."
