Special occasion worthy

Super good steaks, sides and desserts in a traditional old school steakhouse setting. Even better being special occasion guests! Pricey otherwise.

I have been wondering for some time now on whether or not I should write this review. I have been a strong supporter and patron of this restaurant ever since Jeff and Kelly Ford took it over, but every time I visit I can't help but cringe and it is the reason why I am giving the rating of 'terrible'....

We went with friends who love the place and go all the time. It was our first visit and I thought it was fabulous. I had an excellent gin martini and wonderful glass of Zinfandel to accompany my meal. I had the lobster bisque and a filet with bone marrow butter. Soooo good! The steak was very tender.

Real crab in the crab cakes with a very nice sauce! I never had so many dips for bread that taste so good mixed together! My pork chop with the cranberries/blue cheese crust was mouth watering. The white chocolate/raspberry cheesecake had real chucks of chocolate in it! The dinning room was causal and elegant with a nice romantic feel. Busy... More

Jeff Ford's has the best food in town. We have been coming here since they opened and have never had a bad meal. The staff are awesome and the owners actually care about the place. We always have the best experience every time we come. Cannot say enough about this place.

We showed up early evening (6pm) on a Saturday night in December without a reservation. They were very busy but offered us seats at the bar. Every member of the staff bent over backwards to be nice and accommodating. The drinks were good but the salad and steak was amazing. The busy bartender took time to chat too. A very... More

I've gone past this restaurant hundreds of time since I was a little kid, on the way to the mall. I was staying in a nearby hotel recently and decided to try it. It's a wonderful place. It's elegant. The servers were knowledgeable and attentive. We ordered appetizers and salads. The food was outstanding.

This place was an unexpected surprise. The cuts of meat were excellent and the baked potatoes were spot on, If there was anything that was less then perfect, it was the cheesecake. But by that point in the evening, I was so full, it really did not matter. This place is small, so reservations might be a good idea, but... More

I have been to J Ford's three or four times. I have never been disappointed with any aspect of the restaurant. I have only dined in two 5 star restaurants in my life. One in St Louis and another in Charleston, SC. J. Fords is definitely in the same league with the finest restaurants I have visited. My only regret... More

We didn't have a reservation, but they immediately seated us. The atmosphere was nice. My husband ordered a filet, which he said was very good. I ordered a rib eye and I really didn't care for it. It was huge, but very hard to cut and tough to eat, even though it was cooked to perfection. It was $45...definitely not... More
