Restaurants who have very large pieces of meat as the main attraction are not normally my first choice, however I was really pleased with my visit to Cattle Baron for a casual business supper. The steaks ordered were excellent - the restaurant had great atmosphere...More

I really love the food here and have been here a good couple of times. But recently I was a bit upset you guys didn't serve the little pieces of steak and bread. That really set up the entire meal and it's really unfortunate you guys don't serve it anymore. Please start again, it was amazing.
