“Great birthday dinner”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 29, 2014

Took the family to Rick's for my birthday this past weekend. Started off with the pork belly, it was nice and crisp on the outside and tender and wonderful when you took a bite. Cocktails were made well but glasses were on the small side, but drinks were tasty and served their purpose while we looked over the menu. The wife and I had the filet, my son had the ribeye, and our daughter went with a "boring" burger... although it looked awesome and she said it was very good. The steaks were cooked to our specifications and the sides were all excellent. The three of us who are of legal drinking age had a bottle of Parraduxx; its a nice red blend and went very well with the steaks. Dessert was a piece of pecan pie and bourbon ice cream, loved it. The kids, if 23 and 17 yrs are still kids, had the brownie sundae for 2, from the speed they devoured it and the good natured comments to each other about not getting their spoon in the way, it must have been going over well. Overall the meal and the setting was excellent, service was superb as always and the chance to enjoy a fine meal with my favorite people created a new fond memory.

This is one of the better steak house in North Texas. Decor is warm and the wait staff does an excellent job.
If you are a fan of pork chops, ther stuff chop is to die for

“The best filet”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

This is definitely not a place to bring your kids. PLEASE, don't bring your kids. Especially a Friday night at 8pm when people want a nice night out AWAY from THEIR kids. Other than that nonsense the night we went, it was perfect. Everything is a la carte so be prepared to drop some bucks but it's all so delicious you won't care. Best filet I've ever had in my life. Have NEVER been disappointed. Decent lunch menu too to sit out on the patio on a gorgeous day. Either way, you will love it.

“We had such a good time at lunch”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 28, 2014

While visiting downtown McKinney on the first nice spring day, we happened upon this gem of a restaurant. We were so pleasantly greeted upon our arrival and shown to table where a personable waiter asked how we were and what brought us in today. We had such a nice conversation and received impeccable service as well. Now, the food, was absolutely delicious. I asked for a substitution for the chicken salad sandwich to be on an egg bun instead of the croissant and if I could possibly have cole slaw rather than chips, and the staff was most accommodating and the dish was perfect in taste and presentation. We highly recommend this restaurant - we had such a good time at lunch. Thank you to the entire staff!
