Ordered the New York strip medium rare ($23) and it was served perfect.. Was one of the best steaks I've ever had. Great little place downtown, with awesome food. Would go back here again.

A family owned restaurant for over 25 years- excellent beef and the best perch (a local fish) which you just have to try- even if just an appetizer. In the downtown area and serving dinner until midnight. Also a great salad bar on Fri-Sat nights. Our very favorite in-town restaurant.

Just popped in. Had prime rib and steak. Excellent. Great flavor, cut like butter. Walked around and found this place. I think this ranked only 43rd... way low.

Ordered steak and ribs. Steak was tough and ribs tasted boiled and flavorless. My wife ordered scallops and they were rubbery. To top it off, when the waitress took my credit card, she left it sitting on the bar and walked away for at least 5 minutes. Good thing I was watching. This is the first time I have ever written a bad review. We will not go there again.

We love Modes and this last trip was a good reminder why. The services was warm and attentive and the steaks were great! Modes is small, probably 24" wide by 75' deep. Add a bunch of friendly diners and you have a good time just being in the place. The food is typical steak & potatoes done right.
