Save room for carrot cake!!

We joined our friends for a dinner out. As usual, the food was extraordinary and the service was excellent. Everyone had some form of steak and everyone enjoyed their meal. However, I was disappointed with my steak medallions (tonight's special). Although the mushroom sauce was to die for, the... read more

The atmosphere here was very friendly, with a romantic feel. Our waiter...he was amazing, and the hostess were pleasant and professional. The food was soooo good that even full I still wanted to eat more. Everything on the menu is good, but my favorite is the mac and cheese. The food value and taste is above other restaurants I've been... More

Met three friends there yesterday for lunch. None of us were disappointed. Sheila had chicken pasta (as always) that she said was terrific. Ruby had steak burgers that she raved about....They looked delicious. Anita had a HUGE club sandwich with a load of string fries. I enjoyed the extremely tender Prime Rib French Dip with the outrageously delicious Mac N'... More

A really good place for a business lunch. It is clean, good service, and the food is quite good. The ahi tuna salad is particularly tasty.

Poor! The manager refused to take our name until every single member of our party had arrived. He told us that it would be at least an hour or more wait once the last member arrived. I have never heard of such a policy. We have been going to this restaurant for years but never again. Called both Shulas and... More
