A little confusion at first

We arrived a little after 3 on a Saturday so we weren't expecting a crowded restaurant. We were seated right away but no server showed up. After about 5 min a manager came over and apologized for the delay because there had been a mixup and offered us a free appetizer. We declined because we'd... read more

Peanuts, then their home made rolls with cinnamon butter, then any food option you choose afterwards always please. Great atmosphere.

Stopped in at dinner time on a Wednesday.....didn't expect a packed house. Wait time was reasonable, about ten minutes. Staff was fast and courteous and the kitchen was putting food very quickly. Manager stopped by to check on all of the tables. Great experience all the way around. I can see why they stay busy. Yee Ha!

Very fast service and very good food. They made sure all food was made correctly and was what we ordered. The kids loved the cheeseburgers and the buns with cinnamon butter. Very impressed with this location. Would definitely go back.

If you want a good steak at a reasonable price and lively atmosphere this is it. It's very popular and catches nearby hotel traffic so be prepared to wait a bit, especially on the weekends.

It is a busy place so often end up with a long wait. You can call ahead and get a place in line but I don' think they have actual reservations. Not the best for driving by and deciding to stop. Food is good, staff is pleasant but wish they could do something about the noise level.

We enjoyed a great meal with our young son. I would definitely recommend using the call ahead seating, we got right in and didn't have to wait. The steak was cooked perfectly with great seasoning. The sides were fresh, portions were huge. The desert was excellent but we couldn't eat it all.

Went here last night and had an excellent waitress. The manager was even kind enough to make rounds and make sure his guests were enjoying their meals. Our food was very good. I do wish my food had been a bit warmer, but still delicious. My husband's steak was cooked perfectly. Will return! Cheers!
