Expensive steak house and I had my hopes up for a fantastic meal. Guess I should have avoided the filet. Over cooked, dry and no flavor at all. I will often chalk a bad experience like this up to a poor choice or just bad luck. A $40 filet should be better though. Honestly, every steak I've ever had from... More

My wife and I had the best experience while celebrating our anniversary over dinner. I called and made reservations weeks in advance, and I must have casually mentioned it was our anniversary because when we arrived they had our table waiting with a nice decoration celebrating our anniversary. The food was excellent; match by the great service. This was certainly... More

We live an hour away from this restaurant, but any chance we have to go to this restaurant, we grab it and run! They have a lunch special with set choices and they are fantastic! Don't EVER pass up tyhe shrimp cocktail with the famous sinus-appealing cocktail sauce! My mouth waters just writing about it! Superb service and atmosphere. We... More

The food, service, and drinks are superb. The bad part about it is if you need to eat during the busy time in the evening you had better go to the bar area and get the first table available.

But if you sit around and look pathetic enough the fantastic manager and bar tenders will find you a place somewhere. Then the magic begins. You must order the shrimp cocktail. The aged steak was not fantastic, but the fried green tomatoes were worth it all. Also the garbage salad is fantastic.

I have eaten at this restaurant many times. It was a great place when it first opened!! Unfortunately the quality of food and service has continued in a downward trend. Recently, friends from Chicago and Los Angeles were in town. They had eaten here before and suggested we go again. They were also taken back that the service and food... More

Actually, I ate here three times during my PRI Expo. I had 2 dinners and a lunch. First, the service is PRO. Secondly, the kitchen delivers my special needs every time. Filet perfectly cooked. Asparagus perfectly cooked. Wines by the glass are both generous pours and excellent choices. With all of the racing industry in town for four days, the... More

A bunch of us ate here for dessert after getting a recommendation from another restaurant in the area. We ate in the circular bar area and just ordered drinks and dessert. We learned about the interesting history of the restaurant and enjoyed the ambiance tremendously. You feel transported to the Great Gatsby. We ordered their brownie and the sugar cream... More
