This is the best steakhouse! Love the steak, bernaise, and let's talk brussels sprouts. I used to hate them now I love them.

This is one of my family's favorites spots to eat. Everything that we have tried has been to our satisfaction. The only thing I suggest is add more flavor to the pickle shots! They need more pickle juice - they taste like they are all...vodka :)More

We arrived just after 3:00 pm on a Friday and it was already filling up. It's always good to know it's popular with the locals. I'm so thankful I read about this restaurant which is off the beaten path. We both had T-Bone steaks cooked...perfectly and served hot by Rae, our super-efficient and friendly server. When she heard it was our first time dining there, she brought us a sample of their green chili. It's hot! I know we'll go back but it will be hard to choose because everything looks great.More

5281 is close by and it’s good food at economical prices. They have 2-3 dinner specials each night. Really good steak for the price.

This place is absolutely fabulous as usual. We have been here many times and never had a bad experience. We live way up north and this is our favorite place to go, distance is not a problem. Owner always comes by to say “hey”..

We really enjoyed our visit there! We chatted with the bartenders, the hostess was great, the server was wonderful, and the owner Bruno was fun, you could definitely tell he is a character. We had the walleye bites, crab legs, green chili, and a steak....It was all good. I love Bruno's personality at this restaurant you can tell he's a character, look at the signs that are posted, they are Some of the best and priceless! It would be a great place to go watch the football games. Wednesday is Deep Eddy vodka drink day for five dollars! Yikes! Thursday is Tincup day, all day Tincup for six dollars a drink. Here are the people that made it really fun for us; Lindsay bartender Bruno Tiffany We WOULD return.More

The food is incredible and the customer service is also. People come from all over the city to enjoy a nice steak, sandwich or the daily specials. My comment to the individual that said she returned her steak because it was under-cooked should not expect...magic. Obviously, they didn't throw her steak back on the grill...they cooked her a new steak. (now that customer service) . In college I worked in the restaurant business and until you work in a high demand restaurant well sometimes... things happen. Unfortunately, this customer losses out on a great restaurant to eat at in her neighborhood. We live just a little west and all our neighbors enjoy going because it is a great place to eat:) Cheers!More

Terrible customer service tonight, ordered most expensive steak on the menu and it came out way under cooked, after it came out a second time my husband was done eating. The owner brought it over and I told him to just box it up...no apology,...nothing comped, didn’t care a single bit that I sat there for 15 minutes while my husband finished his dinner. I was treated like I had done something wrong. The food is ok here, we live in the neighborhood so have gone here in the past but the service was so inexcusable tonight we won’t ever go back. With all the restaurants to choose from I recommend you pick a different place.More

Pleasant staff, excellent food, great variety of beers! The food is far better than you'd ever expect in a very casual location. Truly, a very nice diversion from the trite, chain-restaurant setting

Casual good eats. Steaks seafood and drinks. Atmosphere is sports bar but would not think twice about bringing kids. Is usually busy because it is good!
