Decent steaks and chops restaurant

Food is pretty good and service is adequate. I find that the prices are a bit high for what you get and I feel crowded there. I have been here multiple times as others like this place more than me. Since I prefer more varied menu and more room between tables I only gave them an average rating... read more

Next door to Hampton Inn La Guardia, just a few steps away. Excellent service, excellent food, excellent Sam Adams beer. They even had Drambuie for an after dinner drink. I love Drambuie. Nice quiet place where you can relax and enjoy your dinner and be well taken care of. Prices very reasonable considering proximity to LaGuardia.

This restaurant has been around for decades, however, I understand now under new management. It was great then and very good now. We went a couple of months ago and had a very nice dinner with great service. We enjoyed it well enough to go back for an early new year's eve dinner with family. The restaurant still had very...

The restaurant had a price fix that was unbelievable and absolutely delicious. Steak was outstanding...cooked perfectly. Would highly recommend to all steak lovers. Ambiance was great...good service...very attentive. Only downside to this restaurant was finding a parking space.

Menu items include traditional things like baked potato, french fries or "potato pie" the potato pie used to be good. the last time... More

My fiancé and I love love love steak!! As New Yorkers, we frequent many steak restaurants and are often disappointed in the quality of the meat. Back in the 1980's, Embers was the place to go. People would wait hours for a table at this Bay Ridge Hot spot. As years went by, sadly Embers seem to have gone down... More
