I would absolutely choose this steak house over the chain's like Palm, Ruth Chris, or Mortons. They have excellent selection, i ordered the Texas Waguy and it was perfect. They also have a great wine selection. Ambience is what you would expect in a old time steak house

Had a nice cocktail in the bar while we waited for a table. Best to have a reservation. Service was excellent! Steaks offered included real Japanese Wagyu for a lot of $$$. Porterhouse was 40 ounces bone in. I had the smallest steak (>$40) which was a prime 7 ounce filet. Delicious! Cooked perfectly. Added crab Oscar for another $20... More

Here's the deal...its good, expensive and pretentious. If you like that mix in an old, historic downtown setting you're golden. Live music on weekends...very white retro jazz. You know, like a pseudo segregated speakeasy. Good for your insomnia.

So we arrived at 8:07 p.m. and had dinner reservations at 8:00 p.m. The waiter finally came and took our drinks order at 8:22 p.m. By 8:45 we still did not have our drinks (that is, fully 36 minutes after we were sat. He blamed the bar for being backed up (maybe?) but this did not address HIS not even... More

My wife and I had done some research on many restaurants in the Riverwalk area and felt this was a great choice for an exceptional lunch for our anniversary lunch, and it was. My wife had the saffron pasta and I ordered the Blackened Snapper which was outstanding. Because I told them of our anniversary celebration they brought over two... More

Delicious meal with wonderful service! It's your typical traditional steak house -- nice yet slightly gaudy decor, attentive service, and amazing food!

My husband and I stopped in for Lunch. No smells at all, we ordered soup and sandwiches. The soup was superb, the sandwiches were so regular and unexciting. The mostterella was so thin, the bread wasn't right, the roasted red peppers were sparingly spread on, grilled and just not a famous restaurant sandwich, nor was the turkey, we could have... More

My daughter and I had dinner there. Great service and awesome food! A short walk from the Riverwalk. If you want great steak, this is the place. It's pricey, but worth it.
