Consistently Good Steak House

We have dined here several times, especially after Guy Fieri mentioned on tv they had the best French Onion Soup (they do!). Beef dishes never fail to please. Definitely a favorite with long time locals. Booth seating is appealing. Good happy hour. Excellent service.

I've read some less than sterling reviews about this restaurant. Having eaten there several times I was wondering whether things had really gone down hill. My wife and I returned to give them a try and came away convinced that the people who gave them the bad reviews must have had a really bad day. We both had the prime... More

Great food, nice bar, semi-quiet, most tables are in booth arrangements, so semi-private, very good steaks and prime rib.

If you want a great beef eating experience, this is the place. All of us had the prime rib so I actually cannot speak for any other entry. But the prime rib was done perfectly and very tender. The staff was helpful and friendly.

Not being from the area - my son and daughter-in-law took us to Cricklewood for our anniversary. We arrived in separate cars - while waiting for the others to arrive - we were constantly being asked if we wanted appetizers. Then the entire party was seated the waitress was not even giving us time to read the menu and wanting... More

Went back to this restaurant for my birthday and once again I was not disappointed. We had prime rib that was cooked to perfection. Of course we had the French onion soup, this is by far the best I have ever had.

This is a restaurant that has been here for awhile, but is in the business of reinventing itself again and again. If you like red meat, this is a good choice in Santa Rosa. There is also an extensive menu with lots of choices, but our favorite is the prime rib dinner.

Starting w/the dried food spattered on the booth wall, it was followed w/a tasteless lemon drop martini. The tempura coating on the shrimp was flat and soggy. Baked potato was good but butter and sour cream were served together in one small container when I asked for it on the side. Service was good but quality of food and presentation... More
