Great dinner, atmosphere, and in a fun destination!

We had great service tonight and our food was excellent. Our server understood the menu with our gluten free party member and accommodated my dad in his wheelchair.

I liked the price and location. It was a good meal for the cost and the service was attentive. It was not a very nice choice for a romantic evening. The dining room is really open, so there is no privacy. More booths rather than tables would help. There was loud music in the front, though they did give us... More

The atmosphere makes you feel like you are dining somewhere above the average cut! Our waiter was very personable and attentive. He made sure that we had everything we wanted and needed to make our experience perfect. The food was delicious and cooked to perfection. The waiter again, was very helpful in helping us decide which items to order. The... More

This is one of the better restaurants to grab a steak in the area. On valentine's day, they outdid themselves. Service was 5 star; food was 5 star; all around 5 star. We haven't been there for awhile so not sure if they stepped up their game for the occasion or if it's the new status quo. Check them out... More

My husband and I really enjoyed the service and ambiance of the restaurant. The food was pretty standard for a steakhouse but well priced. It was also nice that potato and salad were included with the price of the meal, which is not so standard anymore. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely go back.

My daughter and I visited this restaurant because we had seen it on Groupon. What a great find! The food was excellent, and the service even better. Both the waitress and the host visited our table many times to check on us. We felt special and will return often, even though it's a bit of a drive.

In answer to your question, yes we have had better Steaks [for example Ruth Chris]. The service was good, but we now know to not to go on a Friday night. There were too many young children. We love our own Grandchildren, but not while we are trying to enjoy a Steak Dinner.

The food and service were excellent. I was especially impressed with the host ( a gentleman) who came over and asked how our meal was. Large portions, with fresh, high quality ingredients. Everything is made from scratch and tastes wonderful. The atmosphere is great and they even have an outdoor area. We would have loved to sit out there, but... More
