Perhaps if we had chosen a different night other than Christmas Eve, when the restaurant, down a looong flight of stairs, had been less crowded, our dining experience might have been better. As it was, we found nothing to rave about with the food. The service was fine, but the cheese potatoes were dry and crusty; the ribs seemed to... More

This is one of the best steakhouses on the south side. It has that western feel to it, but not cheesy like a Lone Star Steakhouse. The service is great and the atmosphere is very appealing.

I have to say this is one of my favorite steak house. Portions are big! Price could include side orders too. I had the New York strip omg! It was so good! Mashed and onion soup is a must have. The bread is delicious too. I think is a bit crowded as far as the setup and pretty dark for... More

Met old friends for dinner. Upon arrival we were greeted very warmly. Our server attended all our needs. The food was excellent, but what large portions. Six of us could habe easily split 2 meals. Although, we all enjoyed our leftovers for lunch the next day. Two thumbs up.

I'd go with 3.5 stars if I could. I've been here a few times this past year so thought it was time to write a review. Al's kitschy Wild West decor is what it is. Service is friendly and usually good, but can be absent-minded at times. The steaks aren't the highest quality, but are cooked properly and you most... More

Definitely a " Country Cowboy" type of restaurant with all the decore....But DON"T let that be a turnoff.....because the portions were "HUGH" as well as the flavor....My prime rib was one of the best ever as well as my Love's rib eye steak......absolutely some of the best anywhere. Service was impeccable as well as the kitchen staff was quick so... More
