The food is very good and the dining atmosphere is the best in Cleveland. Nice selection of wines and a fun place to have a drink with live music outside on Wednesday nights.

The feeling is that you are in the mountains of Colorado or a western location. Restaurant is elegant. Steaks were very tasty, especially the buttery tasting "prime" cuts. Usual items like Elk and Bison on the seasonable menus. Great service.

Everything on the menu here is fantastic Great drinks , great appetizers, fantastic steaks occasionally ostrich or bison. Atmosphere is like being in Colorado I'm in my 60's and lived in several big cities and this is the best restaurant I've ever been to. Good wine list, not cheap bur not a rip off. Service was outstanding

Very good food with a flair for the unusual. A generous choice of healthy and no so much food that will entice and challenge the palette!

Superb service since we arrival. Loved the atmosphere, the smell from the wood burning stove inside the restaurant, our food was great and was pleasantly surprised by the live music in quaint outside patio set up with several TV's and high top tables. GREAT spot to find in Cleveland, TN..

We went here to dine with friends and the food was excellent. Very pricey. My husband and I split a steak and he said it was the best he had ever eaten. I am not a meat lover but I loved the salad. The atmosphere for great and so was the service. We would definitely return.

The food was pricey but worth it. We had several bottles of wine (10 of us total) and apps before dinner. The entrees were good-sized portions and the meats were cooked to perfection. The staff was great too.

I enjoyed the meals that I had there. Since this is fine dinning I would expect the meals to be of this quality. To be fair, I have only eaten there a couple of times since I feel the prices are a little high and I have never been wowed. Don't get me wrong, it is very good. Its just... More

We ate there 2 nights ago and loved the experience. I had the elk and my wife had the filet. Both were very tasty and I would recommend both. The atmosphere is great too. The prices are a bit high but it's the best restaurant in town. We also liked the tuna tacos and the shrimp appetizers. They had live... More

Best kept secret in Cleveland! They have happy hour 4:30-6 M-F. With really cheap ($2.00) well drinks, wine which is reasonable and beer. Their appetizer menu is great with reasonable and delicious dishes, such as pizza and salads. Bread is complimentary with seasonings to put on it. The staff is probably the best in Cleveland. Both inside and outside seating.... More
