You should know: If you aren't getting steak, this probably won't be a place you are excited about, but if you like a good steak dinner, it is a good choice in Bloomington! Also, if you aren't planning to pay for an expensive dinner, you will have sticker shock. Trip Advisor is about knowing before you go and many of... More

I don't care why you're in town but you have to eat here. It's nothing to look at from the outside but the food is great. I have eaten here several times. Check groupon for a discount, little expensive, but you will leave full!

The look of this restaurant is of a diner with its red and white checkerboard tablecloths, but the taste of the food was more upscale. My husband ordered a steakburger, and it was 2-inches thick! I ordered the steak kabob which was delicious. The service was excellent; Kate and Alexis were on top of everything the whole time and hustled... More

What it lacks in atmosphere (if you are looking beyond great college town feel) it more than makes up for in quality and quantity of beef. Yes, there are other offerings like seafood, pork chops, ribs, etc., but why go to a steakhouse for those? The petit filet was perfect at 7 oz. - most servings are much larger, for... More

I'm going to be blunt. This place sucks. I have eaten there 4 times in my 43 years of life, and will not be back, even at someone else's expense. I can't say anymore than has already been stated in the poor reviews. Save your money and go to Texas Roadhouse where the steaks are 100 times better and 1/3... More

I had the Jumbo Shrimp appetizer and the 11 oz Filet which were both excellent. It's a fun place to eat, but crowded, especially on the weekend. I waited 30 minutes with a reservation. The aggravating part is they have very little room to wait, which is an inconvenience to the waitresses trying to maneuver through the crowd. I'm surprised... More

I will always come back for the steak. However the sides are just average. Steaks are top notch, recommend the Ribeye. For anyone who's never been here, the interior is decorated like a cheap burger joint. Don't expect an elegant steakhouse.

Outstanding steaks, very ordinary otherwise, no options on sides, no up-grade on salad. Huge steaks (18 oz. NY Strip), bigger than necessary, very good but not enough to justify price.
