If you like them to nickel and dime you, go to this place, they charge a credit card fee and the dressing for the salad. REAlLY. To me that's BS. Theres other steakhouses that dont charge people a fee.

The baked clams and New England clam chowder are both horrible. Don’t order these. The steak marinate is very salty. Beware of credit card fees if using a card to pay for your meal.
