Great food, excellent staff, and just loved the place! Had the steak, it melted in your mouth along with the cheesecake for desert.

The location is just off the main part of town. A little quieter. We have dined here twice before and we have never been disappointed. Staff is great. Food is fabulous. The molasses brined pork chop was incredible as was the buttermilk fried chicken breast and the ancho rubbed ahi. Great wine selection...i always have our server choose. Warm and... More

Waited for over an hour for our food. Waiter was rude, place wasn't even bust. Almost left, then our food arrived. We expressed our disappointment and no apology was reciprocated. Don't waste your time

Our party had the Venison, Petit Fillet, Ahi and the fresh Salmon. All of us raved about our dishes! The meats and fish were done to perfection. Our cocktails were excellent too--the bartender didn't skimp on the alcohol like most do. Wonderful waitress (forgot her name :(. We ate outside in back with patio heaters and fireplace going. Lovely atmosphere!... More

The adult beverages are fabulous, the food is to die for, and dining on the back patio (weather permitting) is lovely! This is a great steak house, and the vegetables are so good you'll clean your plate. I always get a caesar salad and one of their steaks. Be sure to try the french fries with the assorted dipping sauces,... More
