Great food, love the ambiance & the service. Celebrated my birthday there & it was a wonderful experience. Love to go there for a great steak dinner. The steak is the best serves on a hot plate and their lobster mac & cheese is out of this world. Server are always attentive & around.

The food was great but it was fairly expensive. We had a good waiter who knew her wines and food. The restaurant interior was of classic American design with a grand decor.

In a town of many steak houses this location has always exceeded my expectations. The bone in New York strip is worth every penny . For dessert I always order the best creme burle' anywhere . Service top notch !
