Was completely surprised!

Was invited by some friends and at first I was thinking oh a casino restaurant. This is going to be interesting. But I was completely surprised by the service! I think the waiter's name was Louie. He was very attentive throughout. We ordered Caesar salad and he made it in front of us, all fresh... read more

I was recently at a party hosted by this restaurant. Food was lackluster, very out of the box and I mean..out of the box! They could step up their game, made it special, but didn't deliver on any level service nor food. I know casinos make their $ on gambling, they certainly did with me. I have NO luck. But,... More

This used to be one of our favorite places. Then a few years ago we had some bad steak dinners so quit going. Recently, we had people telling us it had gotten better. So we gave it a try. This last time we had a group of 6. The Caesar Salad made at the table is really great. However, three... More

I was treated to CBS&LH for my birthday. We had a group of 10 and the service and food were outstanding. Was certainly the nicest birthday meal I've ever had. First, champagne in the most beautiful handcrafted flutes I've ever seen. Followed by classic table side Caesar Salad which was superb. We then had Steak Diane, again prepared table side,... More

This is where the locals go. They don't advertise, just word of mouth. The food and service are just what you want when you go out to a nice evening meal. Order Caesar salad and they will make it at the table, they usually have organic meats, great specials. It has an old school feel with the big booths and... More

The CBC Steak and Lobster house is small and cozy, yet elegant, restaurant. The place isn't fussy, though. Our group dressed in business casual attire, but other patrons wore jeans. Either way, they will take great care of you! Delicious food, a hearty wine list, wonderful ambiance, and a bit of showmanship made for a very memorable meal, indeed. We... More

Best seafood (me) and steak (him) dinner we've ever had! Great wine list. Beautiful cozy atmosphere. Wait staff was attentive and very personable but gave us space and time to relax and enjoy our evening. Soft lighting, very romantic!

Ambiance is Victorian with red velvet booths, tables with club chairs, flocked wallpaper and brass chandelier with crystals. Service is excellent and so is food. Luis still makes the best table side Caesar salad. He and Rick are part of very attentive waitstaff.There are many table side and flambeed entrees and desserts to choose from, such as steak Diane,etc. There... More

Wow!!! I will try to put my experience into words. I am by no means wealthy, but was on vacation with enough in my wallet to order stuff without asking how much it cost for one night at least.
