Good burger and wedges.

Stopped in for a lunch after driving past. Both of us chose the lunch special which was a burger and it was pretty tasty - fresh beef which tasted like a homemade pattie and fresh tomato, lettuce etc. The burger and wedges are huge, could probably share a plate. Great after a day on the slopes... read more

The place bills itself as a steakhouse. No. Don't do it. I've tried twice, and both times my medium-rare steaks were gray all the way through. Not cheap. Not yummy. Turn around, go back up the street and try Izakaya Hie, or the Korean BBQ place Marukame if you really want beef. (at least then you cook it yourself, so... More

Great after a day on the slopes building up an appetite.

This restaurant was cozy and quaint with a decent selection. The staff was incredibly helpful (calling a taxi for us after our meal) and kind. The price was around $60 for two people with a bottle of wine, but the food was great quality. We didn't have reservations, but asked anyways and they were able to seat us.

Expensive for Japan but it was worth trying wagyu beef at least once. Servings weren't large but I have to say a really tasty meal, with excellent service and a great vibe.

Walking past on a weekend a sign was posted saying they don't serve without a reservation so it was only by chance walking past another day that the board was gone and we were able to get in. Excellent and prompt service however the meal sizes are far too small for the price you pay. In saying that it was... More

We were lucky to get a table without a booking but when we ordered from the limited menu there was very little available. Most disappointing was that they didn't have the Wagyu steak which 3 of us ordered. The Australian steak we had instead was pretty tasteless. More positively the bacon steak was very nice. Price wise I would say... More

Very expensive for average unauthentic food in Echoland. We ordered a Hakuba steak but got a minced meat burger! We felt like we were in an Aussie pub rather than in the middle of Japan. The staff were very nice and friendly but I don't think we'll be back...

We ate here as a large group and enjoyed the food. The waygu beef was the best dish that we tried. The ribeye was average. Some of the appetizers did not come out until after the meal had already been served. Overall very good because of the Waygu.

In a town where there are so many places serving great food I would have to rate this as Basic Fare. The waitress was excellent the coffee order forgotten. The Pork Ribs dry and over cooked.
