This used to be a really great place and then it went down hill and stayed there. I have not been to it since they moved off Kemp Avenue because I just had too many bad meals with them.

I travel extensively tri-state area Midwest. Best aged sirloin here in weeks! Highly suggest anyone staying in Watertown, SD eat here. Food and service both above expectation here tonight.
