I was told of this place by people that had visited in the past , and had high hopes of finding my new best steak house. right off the bat it's no cattleman's steak house, and it doesn't even feel country.just like a plain diner. The steaks had good flavor but my ribeye was not marbled and a little chewy,and... More

This place is in desparate need of a rennovation. Walking in, the restaurant is covered in hideous red colors and the fact that they use tablecloths is amusing; considering the rest of the decor....you immediately feel like you're back in 1983 at a steakhouse. Going to the menu, it is a basic steakhouse menu, nothing special. We ordered the filet... More

My coworkers and myself pulled up to this restaurant on a Wednesday evening and there were about 2 cars in the huge parking lot.  We got seated and noticed how big the restaurant is.  The server was courteous.  Food came out quickly.   It was decent but had a little too much seasoning on the vegetables.  Nothing special about this place...

Well I don't expect 5 Stars in remote locations. That is not what you get here....However the Service and BBQ was SPOT ON. The Ribs, Porterhouse, and Lobster were all done to perfection. You should pass by the overproced Hard Rock and visit Frontier. The history of this place is worth you visiting and supporting a local business.

I was disappointed when we pulled up and I seen the place, it looks a little run down but I thought we would give it a try anyway because some times those are the best places to eat and FYI, inside looks the same. Checked out the menu and couldn't believe the prices for the place, they're proud and I... More

Searched the net for a steakhouse and found this one. The posted menu is about $10.00 short of actual prices. This places has little ambiance, but the waitress was spot on. Started with the Big Bang shrimp, not big (shrimp were 60-70 count and this is Florida) and no bang. Ordered the rib eye, rare of course. It was an... More

We stumbled upon this place a few years back.... Ok I made a wrongturn. We loved the ribeye then and it was just as great this time. Fast friendly service and the key lime pie was very good. It's not a fancy steakhouse, I feel it's a great place and priced right.

Our first visit to this restaurant while staying in Tampa. When we entered the restaurant there were only two tables with 6 at one and 8 at the other when we sat down. We each ordered a steak that came with a salad. My wife asked for french dressing which they did not have. I asked if they had balsamic... More

This remnant of an old-style steak house still makes a great cut of beef for a no frills place. The steak was made perfectly and am told they use Orange tree wood. Great flavor indeed.
