I've never had a bad experience in this restaurant. The service has always excellent.The cuts of meat are succulent and cooked just as I like it. A visit to the impressive salad bar is a must too. So yet another enjoyable and fun evening.

“Great food and Great service!”
Reviewed February 22, 2014 via mobile

We ate here for my sons 21st birthday! Wow, when they say all you can eat steak they're not kidding! From the moment you turn your card green the servers are at your table with skewers of steak, fillets, chicken and lamb! Excellent service as well! The salad bar was awesome as well! Definitely a must do!

“Top notch”
Reviewed February 20, 2014

Had my birthday dinner here with my mom and 10 month son-they were so accommodating to my little one bringing him/ offering him specially made potatoes and raw banana. We weren't asking they were going out of their way trying to help. The service was the best I have ever seen-and I'm a fellow server. Pulling out chairs placing napkins on laps and never letting your water go down past a couple sips. Extraordinarily great service. Food was phenomenal and they make sure to ask if there is anything that you haven't gotten that you would want. Once I asked for lamb they came over 3-4 more times offering more. One of the best deals for what you get. High quality salad bar to start offers great cheese meats and salads. Finished up by writing happy birthday on the dessert plate we ordered and also comped it. This was my second time here and was an identical experience from the first. Highly recommend this restaurant-just don't eat all day before going because you want to eat as much of the amazing food as you can :)

“A Complete Package”
Reviewed February 8, 2014

The meat is the star of the show, but the supporting components are brilliant as well. The sides are all excellent, the service is top-notch, attentive and helpful, and the setting is very warm and inviting. BONUSES - They have delicious GLUTEN-FREE BREAD! (TripAdvisor should wise up to Gluten-Free, and add it as a checkbox descriptor!) The salad bar was fresh, extraordinarily varied and superb quality. Recommended wines were excellent complements to the meal and reasonably priced. Overall value - Tab was $90/person including tip, wine, and after-dinner drinks. This is not fast food, go hungry and you'll have an superb experience.

“Meat Galore”
Reviewed January 8, 2014

Come here hungry and go home with a full belly but beware of the prices. Service is good and once you get used to their routine you won't be disappointed.
