Unless your going to grill your own, I would not recommend having steak for dinner. We have eaten dinner twice here due to friends choice, but have never grilled our own. Once a NY strip and then the Sirloin special. The NY strip was.... OK, but rather thin for the price and the Sirloin special was something you could get from Sizzler or Ponderosa, definitely nothing to rave about. Again we did not grill our own so that may be it, as all the good reviews have the people grilling. So if you wish to just enjoy a good sit down dinner with a great steak, this is not the place. Personally if I want to grill myself I'll buy a 1 1/2 inch T-Bone and do it at home.

Visited on 8/17/12. Crowded, but we were seated immediately. Waited 45 minutes for our appetizer; arrived hard and inedible. Two tables seated after us had appetizer and dinner before we got our salads. Spoke with the manager, who checked the kitchen and said our dinner was being cooked right then; 40 minutes later we still had not been served. Waitress was rude and surly. Definitely do not recommend.

Visited this restaurant this past Tuesday, and was very impressed with the quality of food. The first 30 minutes had us wondering if this was going to be a not so good decision! But it finished better. It was a good 10 minutes or more before our waitress greeted us after we initially sat down. We started out with a warm crab dip with tortilla chip appetizer, and it was a good 15 minute wait before we saw it-so basically the first 30 minutes started slow. When the waitress served our appetizer she apologized but the kitchen backed up a bit. After that, she was good enough to sense our frustration, and the rest of the meal moved at the right pace. The boys in the kitchen helping you select the cuts of meat, and how to use the grill were excellent.again, the food was pricey but in my opinion worth every penny. One minor event, they ran out of grilled potatoes while we finished grilling, and the kitchen told us it would be 15 minutes till the next batch was ready--and they would bring them to our table. Sure enough, they remembered and they did. Great scenery and location, not too far from Holland.

We have dined here twice. Both times good food and great service. It is fun to grill your own steak.
