I love local. I love fresh. Sadly, I can't find a single good thing to say about one of my own. Jim's Steakhouse hosted me maybe a decade ago and it took a gathering of friends to get me back. The camaraderie was great. Too bad everything else fell flat. Tired, dated decor. Wilted lettuce that my pet wouldn't eat.... More

If I were them, I would find a method of having a restrooms on the eating level. Still nice decor! Trish took very good care of us and the steak... More

Let's start with the seating. We sat down to a dirty table cloth with butter and steak juice all over. Then we received our salads consisting of swimming lettuce leaves and chunks of bacon drenched in a bowl with the "legendary" Brittany dressing. We ordered our steaks medium and they came out looking like seared ahi tuna. We sent it... More

Greatest tasting steak we've had since Ruth's Chris in Memphis or Del Frisco's in Dallas Equal to, if not better. Beautifully seasoned, cooked perfectly, mouth watering. Absolutely great salad &...

No additives or lots of seasoning. Asparagus with a Bearnaise sauce, (tasted like maybe a bit of cinnamon in the sauce), was really good. Cooked... More

Great spot for lunch. Always great food! Best price lunch in town. The Maurice salad with Brittany dressing is always a great choice.

Had one of the best steaks with great service and a relaxed atmosphere. Be prepared encounter many stairs after entering the building. Older style building but a definite stop while in the Bloomington area.
