The food was really tasty, although it could have been served a little hotter. By the time we got our steaks they were barely warm. The service was really slow and the place wasn't even that busy.

This is my favorite place to eat since moving to Watertown- the food is consistently cooked well. The service could use some improvements, but the food is always satisfying.

Conference room turn steak house atmosphere (not sure I really got it). The food was fine. Not a ton of vegetarian options. Everyone else got meat and it all turned out okay. Definitely not the best meal that I have had in Watertown. Probably will not be back.

Service was excellent, food was fast and very good. There were 4 of us and the sirloin steak, filet mignon and hamburger steak were excellent as was the soup and salads.

You need to try the Happy-tizers! The Bloody Mary Shrimp and Flat Bread Pizza are great. Just seeing these will make you want to try these. Great flavor!

Had Chicken Alfredo this past weekend. It was excellent. A little smokey flavor that made it different from the Alfredo you can get every where else. Yummy! My husband had the bacon wrapped pork roast. It was great too. And the service is always great! The servers always have smiles and interact very well with customers. And this is the... More

We were there with a group, food was over an hour getting to us, soup came after the prime ribs, was cold and the prime ribs were tough, not cooked as ordered. The two waitresses for the whole place weren't near enough.
