“Inexcusable service”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 4, 2012

I've finally given up on this restaurant. I'm a local that enjoys fine dining and rewards good customer service.
The rodizio is acceptable, but everything else is consistently disappointing. The staff is a reflection of the owners...which we found to be argumentative and condescending. Except for the regulars and the unsuspecting, this seems to be the norm.
Great concept...poor execution.

“Something different and good.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 30, 2012

This was my second visit here and I tried something new this time. Both times I have tried a dish I've never had before and was glad I did. Good service, great food. In a fantastic, historic downtown setting.

“Save your money and go elsewhere...unless you want a hairy steak!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2012

Horrible! Found two hairs in steak and they made no effort to compensate us. Also ordered shrimp. It was small, salty and not worth the money. We will NEVER go back.

“A Pleasant Surprise in Paducah”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2012

Unlike some of the other reviewers, we had an excellent experience at this restaurant. The wait staff was extremely attentive and friendly and the food was superb. This was our first experience with this type of restaurant and our waitress went out of her way to help us understand what to expect.

We especially liked the bacon-wrapped filet and the parmesan pork. The salad bar had a wonderful variety of specialty salads--all of which were very good. The atmosphere was excellent as well.

It seems like the locals have yet to discover just how good this restaurant really is. We were passing through on business and the restaurant was recommended by the owner of the bed & breakfast where we stayed. We're glad we stopped by and highly recommend this restaurant.

“Best salid bar in town... Food very good”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 16, 2012

Very good atmosphere. Service is some of the best in Paducah. If you are a big eater and
Ike meat this is your place. This ia an Argentenian Grill and they do a very good job. The empanadas are exceptional.
