I am not normally a fan of steak houses, considering most of them over rated. That being said, the dining experience at Republic may make me rethink that position. Do not be fooled by the location, or exterior, as you will find a very upscale experience when you enter this restaurant. We had a large party, eight people, and the service and food were impeccable. From the shrimp appetizers, to the entrees, to the diverse selection of after dinner beverages, this is one fine dining establishment. I can assure you that my palate will lead me to Republic every time I find myself in this area. Well done steak house (no pun intended)! I just wish I lived closer!
