Dave...it was pricey and DIRTY. It felt like eating in the sea lion exhibit at the zoo, with a little bit of the aviary added for good measure. Yech.
College_Dave, it was the Public Natatorium (sp?) and it was VERY cool, but pretty pricey for its day. Wonder what ever happened to the building?
Is there any place that has a fireplace behind the bar kinda like Bryant's has the big fishtank? Btw, what was that place on the south side called that once housed a dolphin tank? I heard that was pretty cool until the health dept put the kibosh on it.
