Not the scale or stuffiness of Capital Grill but we had a great steak dinner with friends. We shared the mussels as an appetizer which was in a delicious sauce, the salad was fresh and the salad dressing really tasty. Our steaks were cooked perfect. I would definitely recommend going but be prepared for a wait! They have seasonal hours... More

So they would not seat us because one person in our party was not there yet. Therefore we lost our table and had over an hour wait. The food was excellent but the service made me feel like I was cattle being pushed to order right away or wait for another 10-20 minutes for the waitress to return to the... More

If you know how to play the line, worth it every time. The kids love it and we make a point to go every year.

Our dinner was finely prepared as usual. We did see and ask about other dishes we saw. Wait staff and backup staff working tirelessly to keep everyone happy. Great selections of dinners from steaks, seafood, poultry and more. Wonderful atmosphere inside. There always seems to be a wait. but well worth it. If there's a line, it must be good!

Moist, tasty delicious was the petite sirloin. The barley soup was thick and very flavorful.there is usually a wait here but it's worth it. They charge for sharing plates...so go ahead get 2 meals bring home the extra.

Generous portions of Steak Seafood and Ribs. We always need a box for leftovers. A bit noisy but who cares, I am into my food! Staff is there year after year. Prices are moderate. Quality is high. Put on the feedbag!

Ate her Saturday and was disapointed. The place is nice and the service was excellent. However; my steak tips had to go back as they came rare and I ordered them med well. The size of my two baked stuffed shrimp were the size of a normal size pinky finger, yet they were labled as large (doubt it). My wife';s... More
