I was expecting a great ribeye steak since it was a steakhouse....I was very disappointed. The steak was unlike what I was anticipating because it was cut in the shape of a rectangle and although I wanted it medium rare, it just wasn't tender at all. However the lobster one in our party had was very good and a great price. I just got the short end of the stick with my meal because the broccoli was cool at best and rubbery. The server was pleasant and when I commented about the steak she offered a complimentary dessert. I wasn't interested in trying anything else there. I was only visiting the area and don't have to worry about ever going there again.

My daughter, wife, and in-laws were with me we were celebrating. We came early and it was a bit slow. The greeter and waiter were both very nice and accomodating. The first thing that surprised me were the prices. With a proper staff and a nice looking dining area I expected dishes to be in the $25+ range. Instead prices ranged from $12-25. I ordered the filet kabob and they all ordered the prime rib (which is what this place is known for). The prime rib was huge, came with 2 sides and was served with au jus and creamy horseradish. I tried my wife's and it was great! She had garlic mashed potatoes and steamed vegetable medley. I had yellow rice and black beans and a salad with my kabobs. Our food was great, include the onion appetizer. We are certainly going again the next time we want steak.

We had a baby shower for my granddaughter....the waiter David was excellent! He anticipated every need in advance and we couldn't have asked for better service, food and facilities. I highly recommend!

We wanted steak and we got a great meal. My fillet was tender and cooked exactly to order. Others who had prime rib were quite pleased also. The dinner rolls were warm, salads were fresh, garlic mashed potatoes really good and the service was excellent. We will be back!

Went there for my birthday and was very surprised. I ordered filet and wife ordered coconut shrimp. We both love coconut shrimp and have had it all over Florida. The shrimp were HUGE. Very well flavored. We will be back just for the shrimp.
