“My birthday dinner could not have been worse”
Reviewed October 5, 2011

We all carefully explained to the waitress how we would like the steaks prepared-one rare and 3 medium to med well (pink OK but no blood, please). Our "rare" friend's steak was perfectly rare, but ours were practically perfectly rare, too and my husband's had so much fat, he could not eat even 1/2 of it. No one wanted to complain. It was my birthday and we had already had a problem with the wine being sour. The waitress didn't like that we returned the bottle. She swiped it from the table like a spoiled child that didn't get her way. One of us took a doggy bag home for breakfast and cooked the steak as it should've been cooked. We are BIG tippers and eat out every weekend. We will not be back. What a shame and waste of time and money.

“Best atmosphere. Don't whine about price, just go!”
Reviewed September 15, 2011

The best place within 25 miles for an old fashioned high end prime beef dinner. Period. Classy, not too bright, and just enough ambient noise to make you feel comfortable. Order a ribeye topped off with some pecan pie a la mode and you will practically be stoned with satisfaction. I would have my last meal here.

“FANTASTIC STEAK”
Reviewed August 15, 2011

I have been here several times and always "over the top". Last night was there with party of 10 - fantastic waiter and ALL the food was terrific! My sirloin steak was the best and Ruth's Crist would be a second to Lewnes.
