Nice decor and clean. The live jazz combo was too loud for my liking so I asked for a table as far from the music as possible which only helped a little. It was music to my ears when they took a 30 minute break! I had the prime rib and it was excellent. The large portion can easily be... More

Although priced for a high end steak house, the food was just decent,...nothing outstanding. I expect a more-innovative menu and attention to detail on the prep and cooking at the prices. Service was good even thought the restaurant was full.

The menu is interesting with many choices from burgers to steaks, seafood choices were plentiful, appetizers and salads galore. But all.in the stratosphere for seniors living on SS!! But it was a birthday dinner so .... I had the salmon which was cooked perfectly with a sweet glaze. The baked potato was not fully cooked but edible. The bread rolls... More

The folks that had steaks raved about them. The ones that had fish, including myself, were happy with the food but it wasn't great. Service was a little slow especially given the small crowd. They did have very good live music.

I would choose another place to dine. The service was really poor and the waiter also had a bad attitude. Very disappointed by this server. The food was decent but way over priced vs other area restaurants. Asked for glass of wine and guess what? - they were out and did not seem to care. It was also too loud... More

Good food and great service. Not quite up to the standards of an Abe & Louie's, and about the same price, but very good. Steaks were excellent, but side dishes were average.

These guy's have withstood the test of time. 30 years. As an "out of towner" I was told this was the place for a great steak. They weren't wrong. I had the Fillet and my associate, the Ribs. I loved my Fillet, perfectly done, medium rare. But my associate had the Ribs. I sampled his and I have to tell... More

Good location close to everything. The appearance from the street could be improved. The staff was friendly and efficient, the bar was well stocked. Be prepared the prices are at theon the high end. With the prices I was disappointed in with no salad or veggies with the meal. That being said no one in our group was unhappy with... More

My niece and nephews flew into town to spend the weekend with me. My husband had suggested this restaurant as one is a Vegetarian and the rest of us could go either way Seafood or Steaks. We started off with the Fried Calamari as a shared appetizer and it was more than enough for 4 forks. (We had stopped at... More

This is really the only high end steakhouse in Evanston. It's expensive, but really does have quality cuts of meat that are always prepared to order. They have sea foods and other things on the menu as well. Go for a special occasion.
