If you like aged beef, this is the place, but on the very pricey side. Large dining area with a good selection on the menu. Nice atmosphere with live piano. $$$$$

Well well. Updated review. This place is definitely struggling with service. The bartender is absolutely horrible now. Happy hour is 4-7 but good luck getting a drink in 30 mins or less even though there only 6 people at the bar. The bartender is to worried about cashing out tables then to take car of the core service. Now to... More

As we live in PA, it is a regular for us in that we take the kids (adults actually) here when we are here visiting them. Great steaks, reasonable pricing, Wonderfull lamb and nice Caesar salad. We will return on our next trip out here.

Warm welcoming feeling as you enter inside, piano bar, great piano player. Service was great. I love Lobster Bisque so of course I had to order it. This was not very good, could not taste the lobster or cognac, more of a tomato base and the couple of pieces of lobster were mushy. We also ordered the Lollypop Lamb chops... More

Came in early on a Saturday evening it was not very busy. They have happy hour 7 Days in the bar which is nice. Kelly Queens cut prime rib which is a very nice size very good sides. It's a little bit pricey but not ridiculous and you will have leftovers to take home. The prime rib is well seasoned.

Enjoyed splitting the large size prime rib dinner and a small salad and it was ample for 2 of us. Prime rib was perfectly prepared as requested (medium rare). At $49 it is a splurge but when you split it, it make it more reasonable.

I liked this restaurant, great ambiance and the aged meat is everything a meat lover could wish for. One downsize we had was the lobsters my niece and sister asked as surf and turf dish, the lobsters had strong odor and although it was exchanged, the second ones were also with bad odor, we guessed it was a bad batch...

We looked at the web site and it said they opened at 4:00 so we came in about 4:30 and had to wait until 5:00 in the bar. We requested a seating area that was more quiet and the hostess said we could not sit there but when we left it had been filled....... Food was just OK, steak was... More

Thank you for all this helpful feedback, Carolyn. While I'm glad that you enjoyed some aspects of your visit, it seems like there was a lot of miscommunication on our part. We would've been happy to seat you where you requested, but those tables were most likely already reserved. Your server should've been more clear on why we're not able... More

Here, we're in the business of Steak. Real Steak. Not the cookie cutter, run of the mill stuff. Our steak is our passion, and the only reason we're here is to show you what you've been missing out on.

We've built our own dry-aging facility to completely control the outcome of our steaks. Everything here has been meticulously tweaked and tinkered to bring out the best in the meat. Only when it's reached it's peak flavor potential do we prep our cuts for cooking. Our expert chefs work the fire and the forks to ensure that perfect cook.

Then it gets to your table. When that fork first pierces the meat, and that knife slices through in that first cut, your eyes get to feast first at that juicy pink center. Then, it's just bite after bite, letting that perfect cook release the flavor of perhaps the best steak you've ever had. At least, we'd like to think so.

We're just a call or a drive away.
