The atmosphere was pleasant and the service was very attentive, but the food was over salted and many of the cuts were tough, seeming to be lower grade. The format is a combination of table and self service; you first acquire your salad and sides and wait for the meat to show up. In our case, we were finished with our sides before the first selection of meat came around. The prime rib was very fatty, chicken dry and tough, lamb was a bit strong, filet was okay, but the cinnamon pineapple was was the highlight of the meal. For the same money ($41.95 pp), you are better off at Ruth's Chris.
