“Everything Ala carte, forget it”
Reviewed May 22, 2013

When everything is Ala carte you begin to wonder what these people are thinking. They need to take lessons from Fatz restaurant. Food was not that great, neither was the service and waited way too long for food to arrive. Will not give them a second chance for sure. They do not seem to care even if you bring things to their attention.

“Fun place with ok steaks and ok service”
Reviewed May 11, 2013 via mobile

The food is ok here. Really, for a place that claims he best steaks in western North Carolina, I was disappointed. Our service was just so-so. The atmosphere is fun, though!

“Beyond Bad”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

The worse Service,fat sloppy waitress's with no manners/ prime rib was like tough horsemeat/ ordered a beefeater martini straight up extra dry well chilled with an olive, barmaid had no idea of what I was talking about, pours one oz of beefeater in a large martini glass puts in olive, gin did not even cover the olive and serves me. I thought this was a joke they were pulling on me , but they were serious, called over a manager(young girl) who was clueless to my complaint, then they give me a $6.00 tab for the drink.This place opened a few years ago and was ok to begin with and has steadily slipped into the catagory of one of the worse dining experiences in America.Orders take a lifetime to come out of the kitchen, never all at once,The only good thing I can say about this place is that when they finally go under from ripping everyone off it will be good riddance and please let new ownership have someone who has a clue what the resturaunt business is all about.
