The food was so good. Our server in the bar was great! Heck the whole staff was very nice. Even had on the football game for us while we ate. The food is a little more on the pricy side/ fine dinning, but being a foodie, I was in heaven! 2 thumbs up!

I was greeted by a very nice pretty girl at the front door and promptly seated. Tifanny was awesome. Told us about the special which that night was ahi tuna steak. I didn't know that anyone in this city even knew what that was. She was a great bartender and made some fantastic drinks. Very classy bar by the way.... More

With my husband, on a business trip, we went in for an early dinner. We wanted food that was not too spicy, or trendy. This restaurant worked out perfectly for us. Although a little slow at the start, the friendly staff gave very good service, refilling the bread basket, water, and tea. We found the prices for our entrees, which... More

Stopped here for lunch with family. It's a nice clean restaurant and after looking at the menu we were excited about our choices. There were only a few people in the restaurant for lunch but even at that the servers were slow. I would hate to be there during busy times. When our food came everything looked really good. My...

I have heard about this place. Always great things, but when we finally decided to dine there on a Saturday night I was left disappointed. The hostess was very nice and sat us right away we thought we'd be waiting, since all of the other restaurants in town had a 30 minute wait to be seated. Our waitress got our... More

service was extremely slow although very friendly. The meals are overpriced. We wanted to eat somewhere nice for New Year's Eve and ended up paying way too much for a meal comparable to Iron Skillet. They try to have a nice place but they are missing the details that warrant a $$$ steakhouse. Wouldn't reccomend or return.

We had been eating lots of beef and fried food, so this 3rd night of our 4-night visit we decided to look for a easier-on-the-waistline dinner. Ranchers had been recommended by a local shop-owner, so we decided to try it. Upscale!...I had scallops, wife had salmon, nicely done and accompanied, and a nice ambiance (fire in a nice fireplace, great... More

Fabian was our waiter very professional and accommodating, I had the ahi tuna with fresh asparagus and my husband had the scallops and we shared a creme brûlée for desert, the presentation was top notch and delicious (melt in your mouth delicious) I can't find enough words to describe how wonderful it was
