the steak, and I ordered the most expensive one, had a couple of bites that were past the sell date. the waiter although nice had a lot of problems. I wish them well, peoples jobs are at stake, but I have to try the new capital grille nearby next time. the importance of the food, particularly for top dollar, is... More

Good choices of food and variety of sides offered. I had the prime rib, very buttery and full flavored.

We visit Longboat Key once a year and always eat at least one meal here. Up to now, we've been satisfied with both the food and service. I hope our last visit was just an anomaly. The service was OK and the drinks generous. However the prime rib was a disaster. It looked great and the chef had obviously tried... More

Our large group reserved the private dining room for a party in the restaurant a few weeks ago. We were very pleased with their food and service. Even though most people in our group were table-hopping throughout the night, which could've made it difficult to track orders and tabs, their waitresses were attentive and gracious the whole time. Our table... More

Only came here as a second choice as the original restaurant we were going had over an hour wait!! Surprisingly was one of the best meals we had, don't understand the bad reviews.

The food was average at best. The price would indicate a better prepared meal with some presentation. That was not the case. Honestly I would rather go to Wendy's next time.

The waiter really tried. Though he touted the new management's use of the better "aged" beef - hard to tell by our burgers - pretty ordinary and served not to order - frankly have had a lot better in Cracker Barrel (of all places). Fries though ample were cold. Special drink of the day was not - it was just... More

Had a burger and fries for lunch. Burger was undercooked and the fries were cold. Pretty pricy to have to deal with that. They are definitely reaching for a higher level than they are earning. Don't easy your money on their limited menu.

I ate here for a birthday party celebration. Even though we had five pm reservations and there were seven of us on the reservation, we were crammed into a table for six. This made everything uncomfortable and crowded. Luckily we had a fabulous waiter name Rusty who took excellent care of us. We received our bread with our salad but... More
