This is hands down my favorite place to have a rib-eye steak. I've had Mastro's, Ruth Chris, Flemmings, etc., but no other restaurant compares when it comes to flavor! Just try it & then post your comments!!

The food is very good and the service once you are seated is great. The hostesses are not very friendly or helpful from what I have experienced. Otherwise, I do like going to this restaurant.

Had an early dinner, as the place gets very crowded after 6:00pm. Always hard to decide between the chicken, never disappoints, and the BBQ Pork Ribs, which fall off the bone when you go to eat them. Service is always excellent. Restaurant can be noisy....More

If you want the best smoked salmon you ever had this is the place to go. You can’t go wrong with anything on the menu. Great atmosphere and close to the airport

Almost everything I've had from their memo over the past 15 years has been great; however, when I ate here yesterday, I wasn't very hungry and wanted something simple, so I ordered a Chicken Cesar Salad (no frills or anything to get excited about -...More
