This is a typical chain steakhouse. We live very close to this location and visit it often. However, both the service and the food are "hit and miss." Sometimes the service is good, often it is terrible. The food can widely vary. Too often, they don't cook the steaks properly and have to be sent back because they are overcooked.... More

Location is very accessible and close to the highway. Service was mediocre. Food was average. Rolls are delicous though.

Stopped by here on a recent business trip to town. It was a Tuesday late afternoon (about 5:30) and the place was really quiet. I sat at the bar and the food and service were great. I would definitely head back here again.

Usually stop here on my way to/from St Louis. I try to dine between lunch and dinner to avoid the crowds and easily get a seat at the bar. Decent food at a decent price. An added bonus is they participate in the Sky Dining program so added airline points for my meal.

We arrived at 9:30pm, so it wasn't very busy. The waiter was friendly. Ordered the "new" avalanche burger medium. My husband and daughter got their food before me and the waiter stated they were having a problem with the cheese skirt for the presentation for my burger. After approx. 5 more minutes the burger came out and it was not... More

Went to lunch with my wife for my birthday at 12:30. Hardly anyone there which was a bad sign. Parking lot and side walk crumbling and full of holes. Empty place and lunch still took 1 hour and 10 minutes which was for just a burger and fries. We ordered a steak queso dip appetizer but waitress came out 15... More
