Top Notch Steakhouse and Awesome Salad Bar

I went here with some friends that invited me and it was well worth it. The salad bar was loaded with a wide variety of things. There is most definitely something on it for everyone. The ribeye is the only choice of steak you have and it is one of the better steaks I have had. Besides ribeyes... read more

Was not impressed at all with the 8 ounce ribeye. The service was excellent. Salad bar was good. The outside and inside of the building is dated. Nothing stood out above any chain steakhouse that would make me want to go back again.

It's not a good sign when I would have gotten a better steak from Lonestar. Way too expensive for the quality, especially when considering there limited menu which would make you think they specialize in something. Sadly their namesake is nowhere near a specialty by any standard.

We stopped in based on Trip Advisor recommendations and we're not disappointed. They serve three things here, Ribeye, chicken, and shrimp. We had the ribeye and shrimp in our party of three, and it was all delicious. Fresh baked bread and an awesome salad bar topped it off. If you are looking for good fresh food, at a price that...

This restaurant was around the corner from our hotel so we thought we would give it a try. It was like walking into my grandparents house in the 70s. Dark wood, metallic veined mirrors, spot lights, and multiple levels were overwhelming. The menu is very limited and the drinks were disappointing. I had the chicken and it was excellent and...

Since this was close to and highly recommended by the hotel, how could I not try a place with a name like the Rib eye?!? My first impression was that the place was odd...no bar, kind of spread out in several small rooms causing a weird vibe. But that was quickly overcome by phenomenal, friendly service and fantastic food. First... More

My spouse and I have been here once before and just loved it so we took a 21/2 hr ride to revisit. The food both the shrimp & rib eye were great and the salad bar is filled with just about anything you would want to go with lettuce, we will be making more trips to eat here. If going... More

This place was wonderful.....my daughter wanted to treat me for dinner for an early Mothers Day dinner and it was so worth it!!!! The salad bar was out of this world. My rib eye steak was cooked just right. I will go back for sure.....
