We are regular customers here... Love this place ... Food is amazing and service... A little dated inside and could use a renovation but we would go back here as often as we could just for the fresh seafood.

Have dined here twice now, and both experiences were very similar: good quality food, but small portion size. Food service is also a little slow and our table found ourselves commenting on the duration between dishes coming out of the kitchen. That being said, food quality here is high. The steak and seafood is very good - fresh, tasty and... More

Dined on a busy Saturday evening and yet the service was very good. Staff were happy and prepared to interact and smile; makes the experience a lot more enjoyable to dine. We dined as four adults and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of space to a table. However, the food at the time was described as yum, I unfortunately... More

Both my husband and I had steak and I had the pepper sauce with mine and it is the best pepper sauce I have ever had. Not too hot and so creamy. Just the best. Served with chips and salad it was just... More

When you arrive at Cardens you must walk up quite a few stairs, and the furniture is average to say the least, however, you go back for the steak, it is good, and one of the places that you return to time and time again.
