I wasn't expecting much from this restaurant after reading the negative reviews on Trip Advisor. Maybe that made me happier with my experience.

We have gotten to go orders here a few times thinking it will get better and it doesn't. We always have to wait at the take out window a long time. We do ring the bell and we even tried to arrive slightly later than they told us. I have had to call from the take out window before even... More

When they first opened we tried it several time and were very disappointed by the food and service. We decided to try again after at least a year break. Over the last few months we have made several lunch and dinner visits. Very satisfied. Will keep returning

I've had some of the best steaks in town here and some of the worst. I guess it depends on who is in the kitchen, but food is not consistent from one visit to another. They have also started charging extra for salads with a steak which adds quite a bit to the bill if you have 3-4 eating.

Burgers, steaks, and prime rib were all good. I was a little concerned when the waitress asked if I wanted my Medium Rare Filet butterflied. I said, "That's medium rare not medium well, she said she heard me correctly but management instructs them to ask,". I told her I understand and no please don't kill my steak by butterflying it....
