Good food but prepare to pay a bit high for the area. I prefer sitting in Bar area...cozy & intimate. Wait staff friendly and attentive!

Chris, We are sorry to hear that you thought we were high. Unfortunately we pay the same for our food as they do in any major city and serve only the best in beef, so we hope you will understand. Most people find us standard for a steakhouse. Anyhow, we are happy you thought our food and service was good! More
