Great steaks....

The restaurant was near our hotel so after driving all day we decided to try it. We had two of the best steaks ever...they even supassed any we had when traveling thru Texas. The steaka were cooked to perfection and the service was good. Would definitely recommend this spot to everyone.

Went with my sister and father. They chose steak and hamburger which both were happy with. I had the haddock. I thought it would be fresh but it was frozen. The sauce was tasty and the asparagus perfectly cooked. So stick with the meat and enjoy!

Best steak I've had in a long time! Well cooked and tender. We were brought a couple of hot soft pretzels with brown mustard before our food came out. Ample glasses of wine.

Seated next to group who did not know how to use their voices. Asked to be moved. We were but to a very cold room. They turned up heat after we and another couple asked. My steak was done perfect but broccoli couldn't melt butter Husbands steak was unacceptable. People at the table behind us had problems with their steak... More

We enjoyed a nice evening with delicious steaks and great service! Certainly the entrance to the restaurant was rough (as described by other reviewers) but that was quickly forgotten after we found a table and were waited on by a wonderful server. Some of the prices were a little higher than we felt they needed (2 stuffed mushrooms for $10)... More

This restaurant is a dive bar mostly dive. They only serve their own brew which can best be described as awful. I ordered an IPA and the only way to drink this beer was to put it over ice to kill the excessive hoppy taste. My opinion is this is a restaurant where the management just gave up. I ordered...

I suppose the building itself could be call "rustic," but I don't necessarily concern myself with that as long as it is clean and comfortable. A local brew house and restaurant, it is just outside town but worth finding. Can't review the beer, as I don't drink, but everyone else says it is great. However, I can comment on the... More

The price was right and it was next door to my hotel. When I went to pick up my order the outside and front entrance area poor me off a bit, but the restaurant inside was beautiful. Great food, too.

I was here off season but this place was open anyway. A fairly small place but great food and service. They have lobster, crab, haddock, shrimp, etc. as well as great steaks. Have eaten there twice and am going back tonight. The steaks are perfectly cooked as well.

My husband and I ate at Jack Russell's Steak house on a special date night and our experience was top notch from beginning to end. The drinks were terrific, the meals were cooked beautifully and the service was attentive and friendly. I would recommend this place for a great steak and a perfect date. Thanks we will be back!
