For the money spent it was disappointing. Wait staff were top notch,the food not so. The $50 stake was butter soft but a 1/3 of it was inedible fat. Ordered a half and half of fries and onions,not good for$9 Cheap, broken up, over cooked shoestring fries were not what i was expecting from a "high end" stake house. There... More

Excellent lobster bisque and smoked trout appetizers. Steaks were really good as well. Good wine list. Expensive, but portions are huge.

Older place - in an older home at La Tourelle Resort. Candlelit, white tablecloths. Very good cocktails. Large wine list. Nice menu. Great service. Delicious steaks (. All large - we should have split one.). Very good desserts. Expensive and very, very good.

Cozy seating in the original farmhouse. Our cocktails were $12 each. A 10 oz. Filet was $45 with sides at $6. Our steaks were prepared perfectly to order and very tender. We had an tasty inexpensive Merlot for $15 a glass. Nathan was personable with a good sense of humor. We will remember our visit here.

My friend and I both love steak so we were happy to try it. The whole meal was fantastic. We had appetizers, shared an enormous steak, and... More

Good place for steak, but the quality of the meat does not match the very high (Manhattan ) pricing. The sides are tasty and large and the service is excellent. Very good wine list. A comfortable setting for a good, quiet meal.

A good place to spend an evening over a stupendous meal and wine. I find menu is short but interesting and selective. Staff there is well knowledgeable and attentive. Homely environment though you miss bit of a music at background but you will not notice it while having supper.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our experience at John Thomas Steakhouse. The service was attentive and friendly, het not too much so. I enjoyed a smoked trout appetizer and shrimp scampi entree while my husband was very pleased with his tomato and onion salad, filet mignon and onion rings. A highlight was a refreshing "Pear Martini" served in a... More
