Here, we're in the business of Steak. Real Steak. Not the cookie cutter, run of the mill stuff. Our steak is our passion, and the only reason we're here is to show you what you've been missing out on. We've built our own dry-aging facility to completely control the outcome of our steaks. Everything here has been meticulously tweaked and tinkered to bring out the best in the meat. Only when it's reached it's peak flavor potential do we prep our cuts for cooking. Our expert chefs work the fire and the forks to ensure that perfect cook. Then it gets to your table. When that fork first pierces the meat, and that knife slices through in that first cut, your eyes get to feast first at that juicy pink center. Then, it's just bite after bite, letting that perfect cook release the flavor of perhaps the best steak you've ever had. At least, we'd like to think so. We're just a call or a drive away.

Nice Dinner Spot

This is a nice little steak house with good food, but a little high on price. Good place to get together with friends for drinks and they do have live entertainment on certain nights.

The Steak was incredible, one of the best prime ribs I've ever had, and I've worked in a steak house.

We stop in for Happy Hour occasionally and have an appetizer and drink as opposed to a big meal. Food is excellent, wine choices too.

Good but not great food - out of prime rib on an early Saturday evening which is unheard of for a steak restaurant - also over priced. Piano bar was an added treat but not worth making a special trip for. Service just okay

I'm really sorry that we were out of prime rib during your visit. This is very uncommon for us, and it's really unfortunate that it happened while you were visiting us. Also, it's unacceptable that your service be anything less than perfect -- I apologize about that. That being said, I'm really glad that you enjoyed the piano bar. Thank... More

Outstanding food, Great service! The aged steaks go great with the surf options. Very nice night club atmosphere with the appropriate live music. Surf and turf plates are below $50! I live in Las Vegas and travel a lot to DC, Chicago, Dallas etc and Vail competes with all of them. They are open on Mondays.

We ordered steaks, two salads and calamari and each of us 2 drinks and for the excellent quality of the food the price was reasonable.

In town for a one-night stopover: We thoroughly enjoyed the piano in the bar and staff who were genuinely personable and attentive. We shared a traditional filet and a new ahi menu item, and both were delicious and perfectly prepared. A very nice dining experience overall, great vibe, and thank you to our server, Eric, and the lady bartender who... More
