Good Food, High Prices, but not the Best

I've eaten there a few times during business meetings at the Embassy Suites. The food is good, portions small, and prices high. This isn't the best place in town for a good steak, but if you're staying at the Embassy Suites, it is convenient.

We had a good time but not because of the food. We met with friends and that was the good part. My wife and I had the Prix Fixe meal, 6 oz sirloin and shrimp. $43 per person for that selection. She had the soup, I had the caesar salad. Her soup was tepid so we sent it back. It... More

Thanks so much for reaching out. However, I'm sorry you were underwhelmed with your meal. Please know, it's not our norm for our food to come out tepid, and I will be sure to talk to my staff about this. If you ever give us another shot, we'd love to have the chance to show you what we're all about.... More

Needed a small meal the day of arrival. Decided to share a pizza with olives and onions. Crust was good and the cheese tasty. My only issue was the price. A little high for a 10in pie, but it did hit the spot. One item that stands out. They hire great staff.

Very disappointing experience. Although the staff where over hosting (too many drive by checks on satisfaction makes you wonder), the quality of all; salad, appetizers, main and desert were below this reviewer's standards and expectations given the hear say reputation. The overpriced side veggies where overcooked, The steaks where less than something you would make at home on your stove... More

There is definitely a line between being attentive and overbearing, so it is upsetting that we fell short during your visit. It's also disappointing that you weren't impressed with your meal.

One of the best steak dinners available in Huntsville. Each of the sides are large enough for two or more people. Every time I have eaten there, the steak is tender and cooked exactly to order. Service is excellent. Waiters are there when you need them but do not hover. Excellent meal each time but you pay premium dollar for... More

in town for a convention, said what the hell, you only live once. It was late and I didn't want the heaviness of a steak so I got the stuffed chicken. For a double breast, there was about a tablespoon of cheese stuffing. The chicken was a bit dry and overcooked. The largest disappointment was my $9 french fries. They... More

I'm glad you enjoyed your service, Jeff, although it's disappointing to think that your chicken and fries weren't quite as impressive.

To be honest I never considered going to RCS for lunch until a peer of mine said the Lunch menu was broad, well priced and had good portions.

So happy to hear that we went beyond your expectations!
