Reliably great always fresh, add a soup and it's perfect! I sometimes have the salmon with blue cheese sauce. Always cooked perfectly, very tasty. Comes with rice or you can have their scalloped potatoes. Yum!

the food is good, however it was better when the dad owned the place. I have met the son, and I'm going to say it, he is a pri$# . Just that makes me not want to eat there. However, service is good, drinks are great. just my 2 sense.

My husband and i learned to just order the appetizer beef wellington and two salad bars. It is still a ton of food without the 100 price tag. When we ordered entrees, although good would always be baggied because its all just too much. We love the old world atmosphere and the service is outstanding! Make sure to get reservations,... More

I have eaten in C&C in numerous occasions. They offer a compactor mene and each item and crafted to perfection. If you order a steak between rare and medium rare, they will make sure it is to your liking, or they will cook it again. The salad bar is nothing short of spectacular. Everything is resh. Don't miss the caviar.... More

Delicious steaks, superb calamari appetizer, and top notch service. I can see why so many locals recommend this restaurant. Great place to take clients or a special someone for an outstanding meal.

This experience begins with the staff. Smart, stylish, and friendly. C & C has a lot of value for the price. The salad bar by far exceeds any other in town. The black and bleu salmon is the best I have had any place. Their desserts are to die for but don't because you wouldn't want to miss out. I... More

We had a delightful, leisurely dinner. We met up with family members and read the positive reviews and decided this is where we'd have dinner. Karen was our skilled waitress - didn't miss a beat. Our steaks were superbly prepared. Fine quality. The salad bar consigned four different types of greens, four types of cheeses, caviar, and jelly beans! We... More
