4 of us returned here over the weekend and sat upstairs and had a wonderful time. Wait staff was up beat, energetic, knowledgeable and professional. Food was excellent from start to finish! Overall a great experience!

“Old school class”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

Now THIS is a steakhouse. I think the highest compliment I can pay this place is that this is exactly the type of place all the imitators are trying to imitate.

Meat - fantastic; wine list - ever better; service - very good.

A well-worn phrase, no doubt, but I think this was the best steak I've ever had. It was certainly the best 'steak experience'.

Go there, order a bone-in piece of meat and a big ballsy bottle of red and feel good about the world.

“Best Crabcake Ever”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 11, 2013

This is my number one crabcake place and as always, they don't disappoint. Wine by the glass list is good, other appetizers are good. But the crabcake is number 1! Don't ever change it!
