“Not impressed”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 25, 2013

We had heard wonderful things and were expecting a little bit more. The food was pretty good, the service was fine, the salad bar was nice. They didn't serve and vegetables with our meals just meat and starch. We also had to send our steaks back as they were not cooked completely. Maybe we just caught them on an off day...

“Consistent performer”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

Long time standing restaurant with large salad bar. Popular with the locals. Bar is attractive, seating can be in private booths! Menu has nice variety.

“Very Good Value”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 22, 2013

We arrived around 6pm on a Friday evening and found there was a 90 minute wait for the dining room. We went upstairs to the lounge, where we found seats in about 5 minutes. We ordered beers ($4 and $6) and the salad boat ($8.99 each). The atmosphere was noisy but the service was very good and we had healthy dinners at a very reasonable price. The all you can eat salad boat is very well maintained and has dozens of options, including warm breads and cold cheeses. A dinner reservation would have been a good idea. My only concern is that the kitchen staff appeared to be people of color with limited English skills, while the more public servers are young and white.

“Great Place and Atmosphere”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 18, 2013

Went on a Wednesday evening and the place was "packed" with locals. Always a good sign.

Lineup for the restaurant, and I got the last stool at the bar. Took almost 10 minutes to get served as the (super friendly) staff was swamped. Steak was great, and all the other food I saw looked really good too.

Definitely would recommend if you're in the neighbourhood!

“Excellent steaks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 17, 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed our recent meal here. All of our various steaks were cooked to perfection. The salad bar is plentiful! Service was great and the peanut butter pie -> yum-o. Need I say more?
