"A great restaurant but on July 4th in the afternoon me and my guest were the only people there having lunch. Food was great but the restaurant has kinda a limited menu as such."

"You will NOT go wrong at CH. This restaurant is especially popular with women. The menu is excellent and so is the service. I forgot the name of the server I had with my friend, but he treated her to a cup of the Crab soup and she loved it. Will be more than happy to return anytime."

Spending an evening at The Bank is like having an unforgettable dinner party at your best friend’s house. Delectable food, great wine, pleasant conversation, sparkling laughter and the soft clink of silver, china & glass. Home away from home – relaxed, friendly, but with the bonus of smart, attentive staff.

"I enjoyed my lunch at the Bank as I had a French Dip Sandwich. The atmosphere is very nice. The service I think could have been a little better. I would return with no hesitation."

"I had the Copper River Salmon and it was excellent. My girlfriend had fish tacos. My only complaint was they charged me a $2 upcharge for asparagus. Will return with no problem."
