We were visiting from out of town for my birthday and wanted to go somewhere nice to celebrate. The service was great, everyone always made sure drinks were filled/refilled and the ambience was appropriate for a steak house type of place (the name can be descieving) However, the food was OK, I ordered the jack peppered steak with the veggies...

A good friend of mine who is a Santa Cruz local took me here a few years ago and I was very impressed! Great steaks and I had Salmon there that was very good. The second time I went, a year later, it kinda fell short. The food didn't have a lot of flavor to it. The service has always... More

We turned up without a reservation and quickly got ushered to a quiet table for two... I would recommend making a reservation We had the fillet minion and the buttered steak, with some deep fried artichokes to start. The steaks were cooked to perfection and served promptly. Prices were reasonable given the popularity of the place and the quality of... More

We had a very good lunch here. A bit crowded but not too noisy. Service was terrific. Lunch was tasty with ample portions. I enjoyed the hanger steak. Will definitely return. A specialty is their large selection of burgers. Small parking lot but close by street parking is plentiful (25 cents for an hour).

The special Tomato Bisque was great with lots of basil, and I really enjoyed the garliccy salad dressing on my baby lettuce salad. The mashed potatoes were average. Mine are better. :-) They have a special Vegitarian menu...but don't advertise it...We found out because we told them we are vegitarian. Ask and you will get! 7 Items on this menu.

Just went there tonight, my wife loved the Mahi Mahi Piccata. I had the New York, it was ok, but I have no taste so I'm going with my wife's impressions. Our server Jonathan really made the meal great, he was really good at suggestions and overall is the benchmark for a great server.

Had an exceptional (and huge!) lobster dinner tonight here - and on a $16.95 special!! Fabulous food, a wonderful Margarita - yet, they were extremely reasonable for everything - my boyfriend had a wonderful shrimp and steak dinner which he enjoyed immensely. The atmosphere was festive in the nearby lounge area - a birthday was transpiring and the crowd was... More
