Not worth the money

Went there for 50th birthday party. Service was subpar. My 85 yo dad ordered a Porterhouse. We were in the grocery business, he knows his cuts. It was T-bone. No filet on the side to speak of. Steaks were seasoned well but nothing I couldn't do at home. My wife made the reservation and told them it... read more

We were uncertain if the food and atmosphere of this restaurant would be what we were looking for when we first approached it; it was! Our waiter, Steve, was polite, attentive, humorous and went above and beyond what we expected. Just a suggestion but if you are there and they are serving the gumbo, get it!!! A lot of it!... More

White table cloths, dimmed light (a little too dim), great piano background, attentive service, and good food. Portions are generous and well prepared. Our server was more than responsive to my daughter's food allergy. I would just like to see more white and a few dry rose wines on the wine list. I get it - it is a steakhouse.... More

Great service, but the food was disappointing. I had a 1/2 wedge salad, creamed spinach, au gratin potatos, and the ribeye. None of it stood out, and the steak was surprisingly tough.

We ate there this weekend. The filets were not good and were over cooked. They tasted like select, not choice and certainly not prime, While the menu doesn't say what grade they are, for the price, I was expecting better. The green beans with red bell peppers were said to be "southern style". They aren't. They were plain. The bread... More

Our recent trip to this famed Little Rock restaurant proved why they are famous for their steaks. Steaks were excellent! Service was tops! Wine selection was good. What I thought was very average were the sides and salads. These items were not on the same level as the steaks. When paying $$$ for a great steak I look forward to... More

Classy drinks from the past or new trendy ones with or a good wine you choose by bottle or glass. It gets you ready for a wonderful appetizer with a prime main course of Great Beef cuts, chicken, or fish. Everyone loved their chosen entree & swore it was the best.

I had the Ribeye. I really enjoyed the meal. We started with a cocktail. I had the Gin Martini, and it was great. Then we enjoyed some appetizers. Calimari, etc. Then, the ribeye came out. It was seasoned well and cooked perfectly. I really enjoyed it, but it was just too much food by the end of the night. The... More
