Visited last night and got the baby back ribs. They were like candy, so delicious. Not like a rack in Memphis but still really good. I heard the broccoli dish was amazing too but wasn't able to try it.

Second year in a row where I have come for the Prime Rib advertised special and they are out by 6:30 pm on a Sunday evening. I called at 4 p.m. and was told it was available. (It only was available after 4 p.m.) - my complaint to the manager was acknowledged but he said that they were already out... More

We then proceeded to sit our table for 30 minutes, without ever being acknowledged by ANY member of the staff. Finally a male server came and greeted us, no... More

Stopped in for lunch, went to the bar , sat for 10 minutes before a waitress/bartender stopped by to take our order. The same staff were seating people, taking orders, clearing tables, serving food, etc...they clearly were understaffed. A gentleman walked over to the bar and asked if he could place an order for his table because no one came... More

Very good. There was a confusion with the order but the manager had offered free dessert for the mistake.
