There are a lot of good steak places and this is one. Mix of locals and tourist. Not cheap. Good service.

This was another recommendation from friends, but we almost skipped. I usually don't go places that don't put their menu prices on their website. I am glad we went. It was busy for a Sunday night, with some local folks but mainly tourists. I got the filet and lobster combo. Reasonably priced for 8oz of filet and s supposed 4... More

Be sure not to eat a big lunch before going to dinner here. The steak quality was amazing and the portions are huge. Everyone was very nice and professional. I also strongly suggest reservations

Lyndon is the best of the best! He was our waiter and a class act! When we first arrived we were told that our hotel (Marriott) cancelled our reservation. They didn't give us a problem though and ended up seating us in the last room which was all stone and beautiful ambiance. Our waiter Lyndon was super friendly and helpful... More

Steak here was amazing a perfect medium temperature. The red sangria was also great. But make sure don't get to full on their garlic bread which is to die for.

The food here is great, huge portions and tons of food. So you should definitely share!! The service here was just okay, and a little disappointing. But it's definitely worth it for the food!

My husband is always looking for a good steak. So we had to check this place out when they were recommended by our hotel staff. The food is AMAZING! I don't eat much red meat and I never use steak sauce on a steak. The steak sauce compliments the steak so well it goes from 110 to 1000 stars instantly!!... More
