Great atmosphere and service

My husband and I recently had a date night here. The atmosphere and service were great! It was warm, inviting and comfortable, while still maintaining a certain level of class. Our waitress was very attentive and did a great job! We both ordered steaks, baked potatoes and salads. The salads... read more

We had a birthday dinner here & everyone ordered steaks: bone-in ribeyes and NY strips. They were cooked to perfection and the quality of the meat was very good. The Caesar salads were also very good. It was quiet, which was nice (for a change) so everyone could hear each other talk. It was a very busy evening but everything... More

This is an excellent steakhouse if you're looking for something that's a bit more than average in terms of cost, but also a bit more than average in terms of quality. Slightly fancy but not too stuffy.

We had a full day of travel and were starved by the time we got to the restaurant. We did not have reservations and it was a Saturday night but we arrived around 5ish and were seated right away. As we left the place had really filled up so I think reservations are probably ideal. We had prime rib and... More

This is a nice restaurant with consistently excellent food, but you might want to make a reservation in advance! It's relatively small and does serve dinner in the overflow bar area, but even that fills up on busy nights. Someone said "pretentious and annoying". Sorry they felt that way. I've always been treated with respect and the staff is far... More

Were gathered here with friends, teenagers and young adults. Universally everyone raved about their experience and food quality at this restaurant. Had exceptional service and delicious meal. Two thumbs up and then some!

The seating arrangement is odd, and we seem to always be seated in the worst available table. Service is pretentious and annoying, and the food is waaaay over priced and ordinary...

Went for Happy Hour (4-6). The Happy Hour prices are much better than on the regular menu. The Artisan Cheese & Charcuterie and Calamari were very good. The 6 oz Happy Hour Prime Rib was perfectly cook, medium rare, and delicious. It was plenty to eat. The regular menu Prime Ribeye (16 oz) was wonderfully tender and delicious but much... More

Service and steaks are great. We had prime rib and a prime ribeye. Both were excellent. Filet ids not prime so we choose the ribeye. Great sides and friendly service.

While on the pricey side, the food and the service were excellent.Our steaks were melt in your mouth delicious. The salad was extra, and one side was included. The sides were a large portion and could probably feed two. The cornbread with peppers of some sort was fantastic.
