Went for our anniversary and were not disappointed! Shared the Alex salad...yum. I had the filet mignon and it was amazing. My husband loved the prime rib. They even gave us complimentary carrot cake for our anniversary dessert. Incredible food. Will return on our next trip to Chicago.

It started with a statement "I don't like Scotch." The bartender explained how Scotch is made, lined some samples up, and explained the taste. I still don't like Scotch but it was educational. The bartender then made recommendations on dinner. The appetizer od Spinach Queso was great and the Rattlesnake pasta outstanding. My only complaint was the large portions. This... More

Had the pleasure of attending a business dinner herr with a group of 12. That was in issue for the staff as the service was excellent from start to finish. I began with a nice long pour of Makers Mark on the rock and there were a couple of appetizers to share. The calamari was tender and delicious. We also... More

This is my favorite place to eat and no matter what state I go to, the service and food are impeccable! I am never disappointed with my visits; they pile your plate with well seasoned and great looking food! The food looks like it is being pictured in a magazine. Love, love this place!

The highlight of our experience was sitting outside with a view of the man made pond. The salad was fine and so was the service, it was at the entrees that things went downhill. My salmon was a bit fishy and old tasting and had hardly any seasoning added. The wild rice and orzo salad was mostly orzo with a... More

I met some relatives for dinner. I had a prime rib entree. It was not the best that I have had. The prime rib was too salty and it was served warm and not hot. We had a spinach dip as an appetizer which was very delicious. The potatoes were good as well as the side vegetables. I had a... More

Food was phenomenal. We had the grilled artichokes, deviled eggs, special fish curry dish. Service was just OK, not great.
