What a surprise!! One of the best steaks I have had in a long time. The menu was a diners dream. If you couldn't find something to satisfy your taste buds you should give up eating. I had the Santa Fe steak with Garlic mashed and grilled veggies. Absolutely delicious start to finish...

From the moment I called for a reservation to the time of our exit, Cindy and I were totally impressed with the staff. We had the fortune to be seated at one of Samantha's (Sam) tables and were treated to her awesome service. She was perfect with her attentiveness (just enough to meet our needs but not too much to...

Their bbq sauce is very unique. I had the chicken and ribs. The chicken was good, if not on the dry side. The ribs were great. My co-worker had the tri tip which looked excellent. Prices seemed fair. Atmosphere was nice. Servers were attentive.

Still, I asked my spouse to try a bite of my steak and for my surprise she confirmed my experience by saying It smells fishy" Long story short , A very... More

Really enjoyed our meal and atmosphere at this restaurant. The cook messed up my husband's order, but the waitress caught it after serving us, and immediately corrected it and took it off our bill. Mistakes happen. She was terrific and we didn't complain one bit. The wine list and beer selection was also good. Big portions too.

We couldn't believe most prices on the entrees. It's not the Hobbit or Manhattan's atmosphere at all! There's a TV AND music at the same time with a strip mall location. Food was good to average and portion size was large enough to share. In my opinion, prices are too high in considering all areas of the experience.

This was my 5th time at this restaurant. I had a distributor and a vendor from Switzerland with me. The owner Art has a beautiful place. The steaks that we had were cooked perfectly as always. The side dishes were hot and had an amazing taste. Highly recommend the boneless ribeye, med rare, seared blue cheese and fried onions. My... More

Management takes pride in their wine choices!! Can be loud on a weekend night. The tri tip is AWESOME, with BBQ of course. You HAVE to try the apple dessert, O-M-G Food and wine are worthy of their pricing. I'm so glad to have this in my hood
