Chris did a fantastic job taking care of us on our anniversary celebration! He was very attentive, except for when he ignored our request for dessert, *only because he was preparing a special dessert for us without our knowledge :) We had an amazing time at B & B celebrating our first anniversary and Chris played a major part in!

The filet was one of the best I have ever had. The mozzarella and prosciutto appetizer was delicious. It had so many textures and tastes that blended so well.

My husband and I came to this restaurant to celebrate our 27th anniversary. We enjoyed the food and especially the attentive service. I've eaten at several well-known steakhouses across the country and I have to say that the filet I had was probably the best I've ever had. All sides for steaks are ordered separately, but some other entrees come... More

A great restaurant for a special occasion. My wife and I wanted to take her parents out for a nice dinner and this place definitely fit the bill. The Filet Mignon steaks were a great cut and were cooked to perfection. The salmon was also extremely tasty as were the crab cakes. Our only complaint was that the Caesar salad... More

First off, ask for Ashley. Next, order the prime rib and let the chef set the temp. Finally, spend the cash on a good cabernet. Ashley will advise, listen.

Atmosphere - 10. Service - 10. Presentations - 10. Food - 10. Great experience. Crabmeat cocktail had huge pieces. Bison cooked perfectly. The corn tasted right off the cob. Asparagus are huge. You know it's a great restaurant when any request is no problem. Cheesecake was superb. Highly recommend it. Great addition to downtown.

I ordered the 24oz Porterhouse steak, served on a cold plate, no grilll marks, only 1/2 inch think (for a Chop House) and the most grissle I ever encountered. I would have preferred going to Outback. If it wasn't for the great service it would have been a terrible evening

Thank ebiz08
ronvabea, Owner at Byrd & Baldwin Bro Steakhouse, responded to this review

I am sorry to read your review and that you were disappointed with the porterhouse steak. Regarding the preparation of our steaks, a traditional grill is not used. We use a Montague Steakhouse broiler that reaches a temperature of 1800F. This temperature allows the broiler to sear the outside quickly while locking in the juices of the steak. This is... More

We were looking for a fine dining experience to share with another couple, and after reading some Trip Advisor reviews, decided to give this place a try. The waiters (all males that evening) were dressed in suits and ours provided good service and an excellent wine recommendation. The food was delicious from the salads to the seafood and steak.
