Met with the chef personally, prior to dining with them as my husband and I enjoyed walking around Roanoke that afternoon. He was knowledgeable, kind, and considerate. The chef advised me on what I should stay away from and our discussion left me feeling I...More

Was part of a group of six and had a wonderful dinning experience. The service was impeccable and the food was excellent. They seer the steak with salt and pepper to give a delightful crust. The sides are family style- so don’t order too many.

The service was great. However the food is over priced for what you get. There are better steak houses in the area that have a much more reasonable price

Not being a steak eater was to my advantage. The blackened Sea Bass was amazing. The family style sides allowed our party of 4 to sample multiple dishes. Highly recommend for business outings.

Yes. I've never questioned this specifically but the staff is extremely knowledgeable. If your specific server doesn't know the answer they have no problem asking another member of the staff. They don't "guess".

Hope this isn't too late! I wouldn't feel comfortable going too casual. A suit isn't necessary by any means, but I agree with business casual. It's a nice dinner out, so it's worth looking and feeling nice when you go... More
