“Good reputation but average food with good service”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2012 via mobile

Ate there Oct 3 early evening date of presidential debate so it was not crowded. Had a group of 12. The server presents an oral menu as there is not a menu. The menu is extensive. I had fried shrimp which was average. Our dining partners had steaks over 1 in thickness.
There was a single older gentleman who went to each table which had large groups and sang hymns soul music solo. Also he had table participation. Overall we had a good time. Appears they cater to groups of various sizes.

The atomsphere and staff are very unique. The food was delicious. The menu is verbal so it is hard to decide what to order know what you are paying.

“Crazy Good Ribeye !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 23, 2012

My wife and I enjoyed the best steak we can remember. A little sticker shock at first but now we know why. Men were sharply dressed and remarkably courteous. Great ambiance, pleasant music. We'll be back here again.

“Nice place”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Food was good. Tea was way too sweet. Had the seafood platter. Portions were kinda small in comparrison. Scallops were small as were the shrimp. The crab dish they have on their menu is good.
