Description: It must be a relatively new place, but it is a hidden gem. I never have to reserve, the place is gorgeous on the waterfront and an old carriage house. The service and food are spectacular.

“Not a Steakhouse”
Reviewed December 6, 2013

Quick summary: Awful steaks - dry, tasteless and completely mediocre. When a place advertises own-aged, hand cut steaks you assume they are a real steakhouse. My father ordered a Chicago style, butterflied filet and they didn't know what it meant and when he explained it the waitress said the cook couldn't do it. Perhaps understandable if you're a diner or something, but NOT if you claim to be a steakhouse. Fries were cold and pasty.

On the flip side, the salmon was pretty good. So maybe they're really a fish house.


The service - VERY slow. Had to ask where dinner was twice. Food served 1 hour, 7 minutes after ordering...so the cooks (note, not chefs) are not only clueless, but slow.

“Meat lovers delight, great for couples”
Reviewed November 28, 2013

Stayed at the Four Points Sheraton which is right down the block. Great steaks, cooked perfectly. Great atmosphere for a quiet dinner with your partner.

“One of the Best Steaks I've Ever Had”
Reviewed November 24, 2013

I don't remember much about the rest of the meal but the steak was exceptional. We went early on a Saturday night and they offered second meal half price.

“Pretty good”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 via mobile

We walked by this place many times and it never seemed busy, despite its location and nice appearance. We stopped for lunch one day and were the only people there. Service was obviously pretty good. The food was good but not great. Would try again for dinner and hope for a little more liveliness. The interior was really nice, I wish this place well.

“Could have been a lot better”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

The Raging Bull was on our tour of restaurants to visit one Saturday evening. Despite the good service and atmosphere, the drinks and appetizers were awful. The beer tasted off and my Long Island Iced Tea tasted like a rum and coke. The bruschetta was ok but nothing to rave about. Hopefully this was a one time event.
