Not a chain, better

Don't go for the atmosphere, go for the food. Having said that, the restaurant is beautiful to look at. Every time I have a special event, I celebrate it here. The prices are more than reasonable and the food is better than anywhere else. Go here and see for yourself.

This restaurant is a classic. From their deep oak decor and very 1930's club room feel , one feels as if their are transported to some elegant and glamorous time hole where service is impeccable , Ambience sexy and beautiful, and food , divine. I don't eat meat, but their salad and seafood options are simply amazing. For those who... More

This is one of the more dressed up restaurents in the area. The waiters are all in tuxedos and there is a dress code. Steak were beautiful and the restaurent was beautiful, very old school. It is expensive however so bring enough cash! Top service!

I've gone to Hy's for special occasions over the 30 years they've been open. This time we treated my brother-in-law and wife for his birthday. It was their first time and they were amazed at the great service and superior food quality. Bro-in-law was especially impressed with the delicious steak flavor at dinner and for leftovers in a sandwich the... More

On this visit, a table in the Library was requested and received. It's quieter and more intimate than the main dining room. The Hostess greeted us, checked our reservation and escorted us to our table without delay. Our bus person immediately filled our water glasses and our waiter brought us menus soon after. All this expedient service when the restaurant... More

Our party of 6 arrived slightly early and our table wasn't ready so they ushered us into the bar area. We had already had cocktails and were planning to order wine with dinner. They didn't like that we weren't ordering drinks and were taking up space in the bar but we still sat there 20 - 30 minutes waiting for... More
