We were seated right away with our reservations. Busy weekend night. Not enough servers. We waited for 10 minutes for server after being seated and asked hostess to send server to our table. Food is always very presentable and fresh. If you like steak it seems to be the specialty. I had Crabtini which i did not feel was real... More

We went here for my boyfriend's birthday this past week. It was very slow, but that was expected on a weeknight. The only thing is that once the restaurant started emptying out, we saw very little of our wait staff... I think the second half of our meal took much longer than necessary. The food was delicious, even though I... More

My husband and I recently had dinner here for my birthday and it was a great place for such an occasion. The service was very good, attentive and polite. They have a nice variety on the menu, even for those of you who do not like steak. But the smell of the steak cooking as soon as you walk in... More

Had the Caesar Salad and Petite Filet with Potatoes au Gratin and a Sour Apple Martini! Food and Service was excellent. Topped it off with Raspberry Sorbet. We had a great time!

Sliced tomato & onion salad with blue cheese. Not Jersey's best tomatoes, but good. Several bone in KC strips and a NY strip. All cooked to perfection. Service via Big Lou was top notch. He recommended the wine, which also was terrific. Best steak in Princeton area. Recommend, just bring $.

Went here to celebrate our wedding anniversary. We did not make a reservation as it was spur of the moment but they were able to accommodate us after only waiting a few minutes. Our waiter was nice but he was real sneaky about getting us to order the more expensive drinks and dishes. He started out by telling us the... More

I had received a $200 gift certificate for my birthday. During the winter, I live in Naples, FL and the summers in NJ. I knew that I could use the certificate in either location. We are now in a Cranbury, NJ, so decided to go to the Plainsboro location (everyone in this area likes to say they are located in... More

I try to visit this restaurant atleast once a month. There happy hour deals are the best. For 7$ you can get a steak sandwich with fries. The steak on the sandwich is Filet mignon. The spicy fried lobster is to die for. Happy hour is 4 to 7 Monday thru Thursday.
