The atmosphere is relatively casual, but the food was excellent.
The romaine wedge was awesome and all of our steaks done perfectly with a char.
Try the Delmonico. Spot on
And, the prices were very reasonable.

We have been visiting R Davidson for the past 2 years on our visits to Tuscaloosa. We were there with a large group (11) people on Saturday. Our reservation was ready within a reasonable time of our party arriving. The restaurant was very busy. I think they may need to consider adding more staff for the busy nights (ie. game days). We were given menus upon being seated, but waited a long time before drink orders were taken. Our first bit of food arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes after we had been seated. During this time, we asked for bread and received 2 small biscuits. 2 small biscuits for 11 people? Not sure what that was all about. Our waiter appeared to be overwhelmed with the number of tables and people he was serving. Most of our entrees were served barely warm. Love the restaurant, but really disappointed this time.

TBH we had reservations and were seated on time. The server was a jerk though. He was overly animated at first and then it was like he went into depression in the middle of the meal. He was snappy and rude. We are always overly nice to servers because you never know what kind of day they are having. This guy was rude though. For $30 a plate that service is unexpected. Additionally, the restaurant has brown paper cloths over the white table cloths. My 70 year old grandmother thought this was tacky as did I. I got the cowboy ribeye 20 oz medium cooked and it was burned on the outside and no pink inside. Stay home and grill your own steak for a quarter of the cost and without the bad service.

For the prices you’d expect better service. The menu is a Ruth’s Chris style steakhouse format, but I’ve had better service at casual chain restaurants. The food is fine, but nothing special. A lot of what we ordered was over-salted. The decor is sad: a few cheap, generic prints on the walls. I’m not sure why this place is so popular
