Salads are excellent and rolls are addicting. Always good steaks. It's quite noisy, so we like to eat on the patio. Also very good for lunch.

I would have consumed anything with this sauce on it. Very tasty with a bit of heat. TN tea was a great drink to go with the tri tip sandwich.

Too tired to cook from a long hard work week. My wife and I went to restaurant for a steak. Checked in and told a fifteen minute wait. Two other couples, that checked in after us, were seated ahead of us. We ordered the chefs specials and drinks. The noise level in dining area was almost intolerable. My wife asked... More

I love that during happy hour you can sit in the bar and get a nice salad, a few ribs and a beer for under 15 dollars

We go for the happy hour menu in the bar. The ribs are delish and at a buck a bone you can't beat the price. The regular menu seems a little expensive.

I enjoy meeting friends for lunch here. I recommend arriving a little before noon as it gets very busy and parking can be a challenge. They have a few gluten free options & that's important for me.
