Party of 9 on a Friday Evening. We had dishes ranging from Steak, Salmon, Lamb, and Chicken. Every person at our table raved of the presentation, taste and quality. Scottsbluff is fortunate to have such a great restaurant. Fabulous atmosphere. We will be back.

Nice place to have dinner in Scottsbluff. The food is awesome. The staff is friendly. The wine menu is fantastic. The prices are greater than other places in Scottsbluff, but the place is also more sophisticated than other restaurants in the area.
