“Cook your own food novel, but just ok.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 11, 2014 via mobile

Very active location, with lots to see. Of course that includes the waitresses that dress like strippers. "Strip club" concept, get it? The concept is to order sides, and then your meat is delivered for you to grill yourself. Unfortunately the meat was pre-marinaded, and many people were nearly ruining their dinner not knowing how to grill it properly. Timing the sides and the meat is also a bit tricky if your server goes missing. For the price, I don't want my cut of meat masked by a marinade, nor is working with an unfamiliar grill very much fun either. You're much better off having someone do the cooking for you and getting a professional 500F char on the cut. The Strip Club takes the Hooters concept, and adds cook your own steaks. I'll pass next time, unless you don't go to Hooters just for the food.

“Fun”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2014

You get to bar b que your own steaks, chicken. The mac & cheese is to die for. The wait can be long at times but worth it.

“Glad we chose it”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

We ate at this restaurant on Super Bowl night 2014 and were glad we chose it. It was fairly quiet (possibly due to the Super Bowl?) but the food was lovely and the drinks very nice. The concept of grilling your own steak was new to us, but we certainly enjoyed it. We were over-faced by the volume, and felt quite guilty at the amount we wasted.
Our waitress, (Megan I think) seemed quite bored but that was a nice change from the overly false and friendly waitresses elsewhere. She came into her own as the time moved on, and gave us some very good recommendations for a Mexican meal the following evening.

“Cook your own dinner...”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 7, 2014

Interactive restaurant - right next to Dicks last resort so they kind of compete. If you are starving, not the place to go - the grills can get crowded and it may be a little while before you get to eat. The cuts of meat are good quality and their other choices are very good as well - I had a tuna/avocado appetizer that was over the top.
Very lively place. I would go back.
