My boyfriend & I celebrated our 1 month anniversary here and the food was excellent and timely! Servers very knowledgeable and friendly and not real extra. One of our favorite spots

“Fantastic steaks, salads and wines”
Reviewed September 15, 2012

Can't beat the Steak Maui here. Can't beat the orzo with wild rice either. The Alex salad is both fun and filling and the dressings are delicious too. My guests usually have sandwiches and appetizers, and everyone always leaves full and satisfied. Great wine selection too.

“good; not great”
Reviewed September 1, 2012

September 1, 2012
by Lois Szydlowski Rib Eye Steak and Chicken Egg Roll - In doing a carry out tonight, I took recommendations off the menu from the bartender. While the house salad was good and portions were ample here, the main entree--a rib eye steak he said was his favorite @ $27...while cooked correctly, was just ok...he raved about the 3 day marination but it didn't come with any kind of sauce and I had to add salt...disappointing for that kind of money. The smashed potatoes again were ample and good, the Southwestern eggroll was not. The fried dough was tough...like it had been deep fried hours ago and microwaved for service---BAD, Very BAD....I would have expected a little soggy...being in a carry out container for 20 minutes, but not tough. I wouldn't rush back there....For the $60 charge (lucky I had a $30 coupon), it was not worth it. Will definitely go elsewhere with all the choices out there.

“Nice place for lunch”
Reviewed August 30, 2012

The music was a bit loud, but they were happy to turn it down a bit when we complained. It's not as cozy and intimate as we'd have liked for talking and catching up. It was generally quite loud.

“Good for business lunch”
Reviewed August 27, 2012

I've never had dinner here nor have I even considered it. With that said, I've had many lunches and always really enjoy it. maybe the best shoestring fries around.
