This sandwich had a lunch meaty taste to it so it scores on taste. In terms of atmosphere: it is a bar and a dark and smokey one. Not so good when you're a non-smoker. I'd not go out of my way to score a Reuben here... I'd just keep on driving.

Although it was good to see everyone, and the service was impeccable, the Reuben itself was pretty non-descript. The meat was plentiful but not very flavorful. It needed more kraut and the thousand island was pretty bland. The worse part of the experience however, was not the food. It was the smoking atmosphere. When we were first seated, it was pretty bad, but by the time we left there were people puffing away in small little booths around our table and it left me stinking with a stinking headache included. Overall, not a very pleasant experience except of course for the company.

    I thought the corned beef was pretty good, and the rye was well-grilled if not a little too crunchy. The sandwich could have used a little more sauerkraut. The sandwich was adequate, but the atmosphere wasn't too interesting. The service was excellent. We came in the door at 11:30 and by noon we had our checks and our plates were cleared away. A great place to get a quick lunch.

    The Reuben was satisfactory, it just needed more flavor. Nothing really stood out as bad, but nothing really stood out as good, either.
