Description: This restaurant has been in Fort Lauderdale (both locations) for over 30 years (maybe even 40). I've visited many, many times and decided to write a review. I'm very surprised that there are no other reviews. I did see a thread posted last year, but is now closed about this restaurant. It is a steak house, but also has very good fish, ribs and a terrific little salad bar. Many who visit are locals and come in several times a month. Many snow birds who visit when they flock down for the winter. Good early bird, and really great burgers. A very friendly staff, many of whom have been with the restaurant for 10 plus years each! Reasonable prices. Dated decor but the bar area has great big screen TVs so it works for my husband and me when we're in the area and crave a burger, steak or the ribs. Never had a bad meal. Never had bad service. Enjoy.

“It Was Just Ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 9, 2012

Food was ok for the price but probably should have spent a little more for a better steak elsewhere.

“an old ft lauderdale staple”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 7, 2012

although this restaurant has been around for years, it still is a hiding gem...
where can you go and get a steak, salad bar, glass of vino for under 30 bucks...
inside is very dated florida but food is always consistent..i usually get the ribs....they are very good but the sweet potato is somewhat small...ive had the ny strip..and the tuna..all quite good..theres even an early bird special menu till 6 to serve the older crowd and those on a budget...the salad bar is adequate...id like to see a larger mixture of greens..real bacon bits..peanuts...i dont care for the out of box cole slaw and pasta salad..they need to be changed out...lots of dressings to choose from...great service always...

“Great, inexpensive steakhouse. Whole place feels like a throw back to 1977.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Terrific staff, attentive without being over present. Food is good and solid. Nice salad bar.

Mostly locals. The bar has some good live music (mostly lounge acts covering feel good music of the seventies).

“Can't go wrong with a good steak!”

Consistently excellent steak and salad. The fish specials are also quite tasty. While the salad bar is limited it is alsways fresh and presentable.

“Pleasant surprise! Excellent steak, reasonable prices.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 29, 2012

Instead of going to a pricey steakhouse like Morton's or Ruth's Chris, we took a chance on a local restaurant. It was a Saturday night--no wait, no reservations. Attentive and pleasant service. We were seated in a comfortable booth and the meal was paced perfectly--unlike other places that either rush you to finish your soup/salad, or leave you waiting too long. We had the filet and the shell steak. Both were tender, flavorful, and cooked perfectly. Salad bar was relatively simple but very fresh. Only negative was a loud, profane couple seated near us but once they left, the atmosphere was perfect.
