We were actually looking for another restaurant when we stumbled upon this one. From the outside it's not much to look at, and the surrounding area lacks a consistent look. However, the inside was clean with nice seating, the decor a nice mix of brick, wood, and burgundy leather. I enjoyed the steakhouse burger and the loaded baked potato, and... More

We ate here twice in the past week and loved it both times. Food arrived fast and was excellent and the price was excellent, All items ordered were prepared as requested, coffee was very good and cups kept full and hot. Variety was also better than most I've experienced. Haven't had any lunches or dinners but would expect them to... More

I went there today with a group of folks for lunch and we were all pleased with the food. I had a grouper wrap with cole slaw and fried squash. The sandwich was quite good as was the slaw. One person in the party, who had been there a few times in the past, strongly recommended the fried squash. The... More

Went here with colleagues during a business trip as it was only a block or two from our hotel. Each of us got a steak, myself getting a filet. It was a bit tough and had a little too much seasoning on it. But still good and the service was great. Unique atmosphere with the music selection playing overhead... Sounded... More

We came here often for breakfast on Saturdays. Truly great deals for a hearty breakfast with lots of choices. And special orders don't upset them. We feel that our server, Mary, is a family member! She is so caring.

Thoroughly enjoyed the prime rib. Baked potato was done perfectly as was the broccoli. And watching other diners, everyone around us seemed to enjoy the food. Service was great food was great will be back again to this hidden gem.

I had the prime rib, with lobster tail, and fries. It was odd to see prime rib brown on the outside and rare on the inside. The interior of the restaurant looked like the scene from Quinten Taraentino's From Dusk Til Dawn. The outside looked like a strip club without landscaping. In addition, you don't see many steakhouses that say... More

My family and I came here after my daughter's graduation, and we had an amazing time. It's a hidden treasure. The food was great and had good portions. The service was also very quick and friendly. We now come here often for special occasion dinners
