Had the ribeye and it was to die for with mash and veggies. The ribeye was tender and juicy seasoned very good.

A lot hasn't changed in 10 years plus..... But the steaks are still great. Stick with the filet mignon. Just get the mac & cheese, and skip the lobster. Kind of torn, great steaks, but the rest, not so sure.....

Came for a friends birthday party and arrived early and wanted a drink. The bar is very smal with 5 seats and was told be a very nice bartender it was limited. Martinis are served only on the rocks (what?!?) and no olives etc. and this is a steak house? Staff: very attentive and well trained Decor: modern steak house... More

Let me first say I have been here many times and very much enjoy the steaks. Each time I am in town for business, I take a large group and we certainly spend well. Last time we went, I was shocked when they added an auto tip of 20 percent(which was fine) AND a 20 percent check splitting fee. The... More

Went there this past weekend for a family event. The food was pretty good and I liked the filet mignon and shrimp. That was the good part of the night. The odd and confusing part of the night was the cranky, rude waiter. He was short with my kids when they asked a question and treated us unprofessionally. We felt... More

Held a business dinner at the Arlington location for 15 colleagues. Service was very attentive and the Steaks sizzling and perfectly cooked. The Cowboy Ribeye was particularly a big hit, literally!! I recommend them highly for recognition dinners and special business dinners. Did I mention that their prices are reasonable too?

This is low key the best steakhouse in the DMV. Simple decor and presentation of food, but don't be fooled!! The steaks are out of this world, and at a decent price too. I took my boyfriend here for his birthday and we had a wonderful night enjoying appetizers, sides and wine along with the main dish. Highly recommend!!!!

OK.. the place is popular.. indeed.. we then waited 30 min.. no kidding.. for the cute server to walk over even through the busboy brought... More

The food is to die for... I have never had bad food there and the steak just melts in your mouth. Better quality than steak houses that charge significantly more. The mashed cauliflower is amazing as well.

Thank Lori O
