Always have great service when we go here. Steaks are so tender you can almost cut with a fork. Pricy but worth every penny, you won't go away hungry.

We love to eat at fine dining restaurants, and the 1875 Steakhouse did not disappoint! In fact, the food quality is among some of the best I've had...not inexpensive, but worth the money. And the special manhattans at the bar are award-winning!
