Parking: A decent sized parking lot (about 50 spaces) right on site; a large parking garage across the street.
Tables and Chairs: Nice 9-player tables, standard fixed-leg chairs. Nicely padded, and a bit fancy. The felt is nice and green, with a clean commit line.
Smoking: No smoking allowed in the building under California law. However, smokers walk immediately outside the "back door" in the corner and puff away in the parking lot. Door to smoking area is kept closed so it doesn't bother non smokers, even if you sit next to it.

Full-service restaurant with table-side service until 11:30 pm nightly.
