Don't go there for pasta, they don't seem to have a clue. The steaks are good. The desserts are to die for.

We come here for lunch and dinner. One of my favorite places in town. Great food, great service and a great Happy hour. If you want calamari you have to try theirs, rolled in pistachios, pan seared and topped with lemon capers butter. Also our favorite steak is the ribeye. For lunch the salads are huge and fantastic.

Why is there no bartender at bar during happy hour 3pm. More than once 3xs + I have been their at about 330 4pm...and waited 10 mins or more for someone to service the bar. Once I actually went to ask the greeter for the bartender. She replied they will come, wow no effort to GO GET BARTENDER. This last... More

They raised their prices pretty good. The Joe's six ounce steak is now $20 bucks. Food was still great but it is a lite meal. The service was pathetic. Frankly, I couldn't wait to leave. I will not be back either.

Spent the day at Yosemite Park and stayed overnight at the La Quinta about a mile away. Ordered the sirloin, baked potato and Cesar salad. With a discount coupon from the hotel, the bill was about $18.00. Not too hard on the budget. Cleaned my plate. Steak was seasoned so you may want to talk to the waiter about that.... More

My wife and I took her dad here for dinner and it was very good. The steak was cooked to perfection and the potatoes and vegetables were very tasty also. I like the feel of this restaurant with all the wood and pictures of Lake Tahoe.

This place use to be better than it is now. The last time we went we were just not as satisfied with our steak...the time before that was also 'iffy'.

We usually go during off hours when they aren't as busy, so the sound level isn't high. I have trouble in loud restaurants but have never had a problem here. My wife and I both decided to try the peppercorn steak and we both thought it was delicious. Our waitress was very nice and answered our questions before we ordered.... More

We thought we'd try it again for lunch--the first time was "okay" but pretty unimpressive. The steaks do have very good flavor but the cuts on the sirloin are a bit unusual (we both ordered the same cut and our steaks looked completely different). My husband's salad (which the entrees do NOT come with) was delivered to a table behind... More

If you want a great steak for middle of the road price and a nice atmosphere, this is the place. I recommend ordering Joe's Steak for two and getting the Railroad Shrimp for the free appetizer. Ask for more of their "Con-Sauce" that comes with the shrimp to dip your steak in. You will not regret spending a few extra... More
