This "steak" house is not much of a steak house. Our party of five was pretty much disappointed from our drink order to our steaks. Three of us ordered Bloody Marys and were shocked when we took our first sip...it was sweet instead of what you would think a Bloody Mary should taste like. We sent them back... Croutons on... More

We were in Burlington for an overnight stay, and the Best Western's restaurant was closed, so we found this steakhouse. We were seated quickly, greeted upon entering, and all the staff was pleasant. The food was good but not great, and the prices were not bad. The restaurant was clean and comfortable, and it was located right on the hwy... More

Burlington was the half way point for our Spring Fling motorcycle trip. We had been traveling for almost 400 miles and were ready for a good meal. My wife had seen this restaurant enroute to our hotel. The clerk warned us that there were mixed reviews-mostly about the service. We decided to try anyway. We were quickly greeted and then... More

We were in Burlington for a conference and just wanted dinner and drinks. This was the place! The service was prompt and very friendly and the prices are outstanding. Food was wonderful, I highly recommend the sweet and spicy wings! Ordered a combo fajitas and a couple of beers and left under $40! Definitely would return!

I sat at the bar and, unlike others, got good service. It was walking distance from my motel, which was half the reason to eat there. Steak and salad were above average, veggies average.

We were stranded in Burlington by snow and treacherous road conditions. After checking into a hotel, we ventured out as a family of five to find a relaxed dinner after white knuckle driving... what a nice surprise for all five of us... I order salmon and grilled veggies... superbly cooked and nicely presented. My pasta lover daughter had the chicken... More

After a long drive this is not the place to eat. When we entered the restaurant we had to wait several minutes before being seated. Then we had to wait again for our orders to be taken. Then we had to wait for the food to be served which was excessively long in view of the fact there were less... More

We were lucky, there was no wait. I ordered the Chicken Monterrey. It was nicely grilled, delicious marinade, and topped with cheese and bacon (no onion straws). The salad was above average. The place appeared understaffed, the server seated us, served, and refreshed drinks. We were not in a hurry and this did not bother us. It was across the... More

Waitresses seem preoccupied - watched a couple stand for a LONG time just trying to pay their bill - waitresses walked by yet no one helped them! While we waited for our order, we could hear a child LOUDLY yelling & screaming from the area of the kitchen? Not a pleasant sound while eating a dinner! Cannot imagine allowing your... More
