place to take whole family

salad bar is great. Something for everyone. Steak is top quality. All waitresses and bartenders are extremely friendly. It is the place to go when you just do not want to go to a fancy over fill restaurant

We have been going here for 25 years, this place is amazing. The good is always perfect, wait staff always pleasant, the older hostess is always welcoming, while the younger one, this Saturday evening past, was snippy. Order your steak by the ounce, cooked perfect every time. A little pricey, but you absolutely get what you pay for...better than Peter... More

Nice, warm and welcoming; a great way to spend Christmas eve with friends and family. The beef is absolutely delicious, we also enjoyed the sweet potatoe chips and salad bar.

We took our 3 grandsons out for dinner since they are all beef eaters. They ordered various cuts of beef, as did we. The salad bar was good and plentiful but the beef was average at best.

I have been eating here for over 20 years, good food, very good salad bar, don't like the idea of everyone touching and taking a slice of bread from the bread drawer, cant understand why health dept allows this. overall a nice place.

The guys had steaks and prime rib and raved about them...tender & very tasty. The ladies had broiled flounder and I for one think the... More

I had received a $100.00 'Gift Certificate' for "What's Your Beef" and I had wanted to use it before it expired. My boyfriend and I decided to go on 10/12. We were seated and I can't say enough about how attentive the wait staff is. We don't drink - so we both ordered two sodas....A customer, at the bar, recognized... More

My girlfriends and I went to this restaurant this past Sunday, 8/23. Two of us had the steak and one had the prime rib....as we were eating my girlfriend who had ordered the prime rib at $29.95 said it was fatty and grisly and she was just pushing the meat around on her plate and not really eating it.
