Expensive, but the service and food was great. Free hors d'oeuvres, full bar, specially assigned water waiters keep your water glasses full. We had oysters on the half shell and they were fresh and large. The fish and sea food was preparded perfectly. Great value.

Great steaks, great service, and always made you feel like family. Benny or his son or daughter always came to your table and talked to you like an old friend. This location is now closed, however their Mokena location is still going strong.

After hearing from someone that this was a good steal house, last night, we decided to take the drive out to the south suburbs. We were not dissapointed! Steaks were perfect, with just the right amount of char to the edges. Twice baked potatoes were really good and for desert we had salted carmel gelato. One word... Heavenly. The service... More

If you want to eat some authentic and quality food, this is the place to go in the area. Meal and Service was excellent! The only part I liked less is the outdated decor and those chairs on wheels! I think that a refreshed decor would bring a younger crowd to that restaurant!

At the end of a six-day road-trip from Arizona through sight-seeing in Colorado, this was a perfect last supper. Rebecca was instantly welcoming and friendly as we walked through the door, and the service she provided through the evening was impeccably warm. The bread was without question the best fresh-baked loaf that my grandmother didn't bake. The steak filet was... More

Haven't been here in a long time. . rather surprised to see men in t shirts and baseball caps during dinner. I thought this place was more upscale than that.
