Tried to place a to go order over the phone and they wouldn't accept orders placed over the phone, so went into the restaurant to place order for a piece of carrot cake. Menu said cake was served warm. The cake was served straight from the refrigerator. I asked for utensils and the bartender... read more

I took my wife out to eat on February 13th for and early Valentine's day dinner. We arrived at 5:30 pm and the place was already packed! There was a 85 minute wait for a table. Hey it's Valentine's day weekend what would you expect. We grabbed a glass of wine and stood by the bar. Within 10 minutes two... More

My wife and I ate lunch there on a Wednesday and it was great! My wife had gumbo and I had a steak egg roll (it was more like three egg rolls) with a sauce that had just the right amount of kick to it! The service was outstanding! We have eaten there before and the food is always very... More

Had lunch -- business lunches here and there. I was there for a business lunch, and usually come here for the good service. Very good portions, and the grilled vegetable side was very good.

Having eaten at this restaurant well over 200 times (yes, 200) in the last 13 years, it has been, and remains, our choice because of its consistent, high-quality menu, at truly reasonable prices. The service has always been excellent, and every experience we've had here has been a good one.

Really attentive service and good food; great selection of food; the wait is sometimes a bit long because it is a popular place but if you get there early enough then you only wait about 20 minutes or so.

I recommend giving it a try. I am big on customer service. If you don't treat me well I won't come back. This place does a great job on the service side. Glass is never empty and the waiters know the menu well. I can appreciate someone taking pride in what they do. The food was good as well. I... More

The food and the service were great. I'd eaten there once before when passing through the area so I knew to expect the best;) The only negative for me personally is both times the background music was a bit too loud and conversation was almost impossible. Still, the food, the food....;)

Fabulous from the moment we sat down. Attentive servers, good wine choices, excellent menu, and wonderful atmosphere. Prime rib and steak cooked to perfection. Roasted root vegetables were the best I have ever eaten anywhere. Companion swooned over the chocolate cake.
