Absolutely fantastic steaks. Great house wine pricing @ $5/glass. Great service. Restaurant is small and basic, but with funky little entrance / waiting area BUT who cares when you get steaks and FRESH salads like this!

Highly recommended.

The dining area was crowded and that is remarkable for a Monday eve. Nothing spectacular, probably wouldn't return. Crowded, old bar that serves meals. The food wasn't awful but nothing special either. And no kids after 5, most of the guest were 55+ so I guess the no kids kind of made sense.

This was my first time up here and chose the right place! I got the 16oz prime rib and that was plenty for me and I can eat a lot! The service was fantastic! Its a small place so plan to wait a little bit but it was worth it! We only had to wait 20 minutes so it wasn't bad. If you are in the area looking for a nice cut of meat, check this place out! You will not be disappointed! My friend got the pork chops and loved them! Our bill came to $50 with tip.

Read all the reviews and was a bit hesitant BUT what a delicious steak! Yes it's a little retro! Yes it is a little cramped but my husband and I had a excellent meal, good wine, good service and a lovely night out!

There is NO better place in Traverse City for a steak dinner. The service is great and the drinks and food are over the top.
