Went there last night with another couple. Had an 8:00 reservation for 4. After waiting 25 minutes we inquired about our reservation and the wait time. The male host apologized, said there was nothing he could do, and informed us there were 2 other parties of 4 ahead of us. After waiting for 40 minutes, we were finally seated. We... More

Other kids enjoyed the burger and prime rib. We came for the lobster special. And it was perfect. 2 lobsters a side and a salad for 25 bucks.... More

This family restaurant has charm and warmth. A short drive from our home - it has been the restaurant of choice for my family for many years. We've been here for holiday meals, birthdays, celebrations and just sometimes because we enjoy returning without reason except for a delicious meal. The food quality is always consistent and good American cuisine. Many... More

This is an old steak house with the feel of an old steak house. The lights are dimmed. The food is fresh and good. The service is usually fantastic. There are party rooms in the back that are great for any size group. My suggestion - if you are a klutz like me - and you order a steak -... More

We set out trying to find a place with decent seafood at a decent price. I was very pleased with our server. The restaurant was nice and the food was excellent. By far the best customer service experience I had while in Fort Lauderdale. I highly recommend for family dinner or a couples night out.
