“Good food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2012

Dined by referral of locals otherwise would never have gone. Building is dated and interior is a real turn off. But stopping there the food was excellent and service outstanding! Would certainly recommend just goes to show you don't judge by exterior. Value was good for $$$ spent.

“Great for a special dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2012 via mobile

We have gone to this restaurant the past 2 years on Mother's Day. Although reservations are almost required for busy days such as these, I was impressed with how smoothly everything was run on a celebration night such as Mother's Day. Whereas other restaurants have throngs of people waiting to be seated, we were immediately taken to our table. We have also dined for our anniversary there. One thing that was a negative was that there were not enough high chairs for us to have one when we went last time and our son struggled in a booster seat. We were told one would be brought over when it was available, but after asking a couple of times my husband perused the restaurant himself and found one not being used.

The menu is on a heavy cleaver which is fun! The specials are also described by the server. The prime rib is great and I look forward to it. The salad bar is the best I've had with an attendant to monitor refills and get you anything you need. We have had a variety of the desserts and they were all good! This is a good choice for a unique steak dinner experience in Evansville.

“Dinner date”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 30, 2012

I thought the restaurant was outdated. The bathroom wasn't clean, that is a turn off for me. The food was good though.
