Love the salad bar, so many choices! The meat is all delicious, sides wonderful, and my birthday cheesecake was excellent, the piece was big enough for two.

“I like meat”
Reviewed August 17, 2014

Our first visit to a FDC - didn't realize they are a chain - oh well. It's all about mass consumption of meat here and they offer plenty of it. Everything was pretty good; no one cut that seemed particularly outstanding. The service is plentiful - my wife enjoyed the attention - I felt it close to overbearing at times - but everyone was very professional and friendly. I'm happy we had the FDC experience, but, for what they charge, I doubt I'd seek another one out.

“MSP 4th best??! Not in my book”
Reviewed August 16, 2014 via mobile

We came for dinner on a Saturday night on the recommendation of local friends. To be fair, the meat itself is authentically prepared and presented.

We felt accosted by the staff however as they kept asking us if we wanted more drinks every two seconds - to the point where I couldn't finish one sentence before being twice interrupted by different waiters. And then by contrast when we wanted to pay to leave it suddenly seemed like everyone went off shift for the night. The noise levels were pretty deafening so I would not recommend this place to romantic couples looking for a quiet night out.

Moreover, if you are from out of town, you are far better off spending the same amount of money for a Classic American steak at Manny's. There are so many terrific places to chose from in Minneapolis these days that I have to say plainly this place does not deserve to be ranked 4th best in town.

“Superb experience”
Reviewed August 12, 2014 via mobile

It was a special date night. We anticipated for months. It was better than expected! Everything we tasted was absolutely delicious! The salad bar, the sides, the meats, even the drinks! Just wonderful. We will defiantly go again! We easily spent $200.. No regrets!!
