“Good, and we didn't have a steak”
Reviewed July 10, 2013

Even though it's billed as a steakhouse, the menu has other quite viable options. We had the catfish and a grilled chicken sandwich and enjoyed both. Our waitress was everything a server ought to be. Prices were roughly what you'd expect. We'd be happy to eat here again.

“Great steakhouse!”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

We enjoyed our meal very much. I especially loved the rolls...delicious! My steak (filet mignon) was just as I ordered it. It was very tasty too! The service was excellent!

“Not Impressed”
Reviewed July 8, 2013

Heard mixed reviews about this place; and we don't like judging without experiencing, so thought we'd give them a try on a Saturday family outing...boy, do we wish we hadn't. Our waiter was a bit odd; giving weird looks but was attentive enough. The food however...I ordered the 6 oz sirloin which was chewy, no flavor and just overall didn't taste good. I ate 3 bites and moved to the mashed potatoes...seemed to be instant with hardly cooked bacon thrown on top. Needless to say, I didn't eat. My husband had the sirloin as well, which he also stated had no flavor and seemed very bland and chewy...but he ate it, just wasn't impressed. The salads weren't all that good either...wilted lettuce and a little bitter. My 4 yr. old who loves salad ate 2 bites of mine and said "yucky mommy, I don't want anymore". We caved and ordered the kids mac & cheese, despite our best persuasions, and for $6 they got 1 small scoop of dry mac and cheese and 2/3's of a plate of FF. We weren't offered any other options for them such as fruit or veggies, and maybe I missed it, but I didn't see the option on the menu. They did remove the charge for my meal as our waiter saw I wasn't eating...then I was told to order some kind of ancho-sauce on my steak to make it taste better and it tenderizes it as well...uhm, I don't want that extra sauce...a good steak should be a good steak. I even tried dousing it with A-1..and still couldn't do it. All in all, I would say our hour and a half trip to have a family dinner was a fail. Seems to be a spin off of Texas Roadhouse, but severely lacking in the quality. (Not that Tex Roadhouse is grand, but it's miles better than what we experienced). Guess our experience explains why there was NO wait at 6pm on a Saturday night in Minot.

“Plate Shortage for the evening was the special.”
Reviewed July 7, 2013 via mobile

Was a very nice evening plus the waitress added the extra spark with her wit and charm to make it full of fun and added to the table talk.
The staff always makes the decision factor on stopping again, the staff we encountered will make us stop again.
Management needs to have their game plan on the rest of the business decisions as how do we not run out of plates especially when it WAS NOT busy as was stated by our waitress.
I expect it was a little hiccup for that particular night so I hold no reason not to enjoy their food and kind staff again.
Try it out I feel confident you will enjoy it as we did.

“A Good End to a Long Day!”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Nice atmosphere, friendly wait staff, and the food was pretty tasty! It had been a long day on the road and this was a nice way to end it. Nothing like a good cold draft beer and a cheeseburger (with bacon)!
