Very disappointing experience- we both ordered the prime rib special and it was very tough. The whole meal was highly overpriced; and, we had to ask for bread (?)Even Longhorn's and Texas Roadhouse provide bread with the meal! Won't be going back.More

This is a beautiful setting for an incredibly tasty meal! We had shrimp remoulade, seafood potpie, and the best onion rings ever. The bread pudding was also quite delectable. Highly recommend!
