Good food &service

They have closed most of the lone star steakhouses around so I saw this one and stopped in and the food and service was good. Wish we still had one where I live.

Our Texas Rose Onion appetizer took forever to receive. When we did get it, Manager Travis came to our table and was extremely apologetic. Restaurant was very busy. We were not in a hurry, and reassured Travis. Wait staff was great. Steaks/shrimp was good.

We had a very nice server who is very personable, but she was late and bringing everything out, very forgetful, and had to apologize many times. I have a two-year-old and it took 40 minutes for our food to come out. There may have been seven people in the restaurant, so it was not as if they were busy. It... More

The server was nice she tried to do a great job but I don't think she loved the product she was selling. We had the fried pickles, they could be great but they were too greasy to eat more than 4. My son, had the steak wedge salad, it was great, perfect med-rate steak just warm enough for the lettuce.... More

Chicken Caesar Salad was my choice. It was delicious. Ingredients were obviously fresh and the chicken juicy and tasty. I have been here before and they have their ups and downs. This visit was wonderful....the waitress was professional, helpful and attentive. Our order was taken quickly and our food order was prepared quickly and as ordered! Keep up the good... More

Stopped here on our way back home to WI. My husband ordered a medium cheeseburger. I ordered a chopped steak with garlic mashed potatoes. We waited over 1/2 hour for the food. Not sure what the problem was as there were not very many people in the restaurant. it was 3:30 when we arrived. My chopped steak was good, but... More

My parents live outside of Effingham and my dad picked this place for his birthday. There was nothing about our experience we would call better than average. Waited 40 minutes at 5:30 on Saturday night. As we waited, my husband had a margarita which he said was very weak. Four of the five of us had steaks for dinner. None... More

We were there on a busy Saturday night, so there was a wait. Rolls were great, drinks were fine and fried green bean appetizer was really good. Mixed bag on how our steaks and seafood were done. One steak was over cooked, one under and one was medium rare as requested, but had a lot of fat and gristle. Salmon... More

The food was really good and the rolls were fresh and hot. Our waitress seemed less than thrilled to be there. She never asked us if we wanted drink refills. She also would disappear for long periods of time and the restaurant wasn't very busy so who knows where she was or what she was doing? I can tell you... More
