Best steaks not off our grill

Tony's is a local place we like to go to when we don't feel like cooking and we don't want to fight traffic to go anywhere. My husband LOVES the bacon wrapped Filet Minions and I like the New York Strip. They come out on metal platters sizzling from the grill. It has a homey atmosphere and the... read more

I don't necessarily mind eating a cheap steak, as long as I'm not paying steakhouse prices for it. While the service was friendly and attentive, the facilities clean, the ribeye steak I had was just awful. It was thin and gristly, over seasoned, and just sad. My husband, on the other hand, ordered a rack of ribs that were pretty... More

This restaurant is the same as it was the day it opened. The menu has lots of items and the portions are always large and the food is O K, but nothing exciting. If what you want is a hamburger, salad or big sandwich then its O K The food is certainly not for anyone trying to watch their weight.... More

Friends recommended this place, so I drove down from my hotel in a Highland to see what all the excitement was about. I had a ribeye steak that was so-so. Steaks should not be allowed to be cooked on a flat grill. The shrimp cocktail was tasty and fresh. But, I must say their loaded bake potato was awesome. It's... More

Low lighting, plenty of large comfortable booths but not necessarily a quiet, intimate place to enjoy a fairly-priced steak dinner. Husband enjoys the liver & onions and their house steak served with your choice of steak fries or baked potato. We've always thought the food good, portions generous and prices reasonable. Plus the servers have always been efficient and friendly.... More

This is a very nice family venue. The service is good, its clean, the portions are large, and it quality food. Let's be honest this is a wonderful place that you are paying $16 for a 16 oz T-bone. Don't expect a high end steak house but rather a family friendly restaurant that servers your weekly dinning needs.
