First off, you NEED to make a reservation. Even if it is made the same day you go, make a reservation. It will save you the hour wait time that you would have to wait WITHOUT making a reservation.

The service, show of cooking the food, and the food itself were outstanding. We had the filet and it was tender enough to pull apart with your fingers. Thank you Nancy and Doc for... More

Food is good and the cook at your table is quite entertaining. As a family dinner or a date, it's a great place to have a meal.
