“Outstanding Dinner!”
Reviewed September 26, 2013

We had a wonderful experience at this restaurant. The server was outstanding and attentive, the menu had lots to choose from (steaks and seafood) and the atmosphere is nice. We had the Mahi tuna and it was sushi grade, prepared to a perfect med. rare, and had to be 1.5 inches thick. It was spectacular. The Ahi tuna was equally spectacular. My daughter loved her tilapia. The soup was good, the house and ceasar salad was great, the apple dumpling was fantastic. Don't hesitate, give them a try.

“Here's the boeff!”
Reviewed September 20, 2013

Their claim to fame is roast beef, and it is deserved; they could serve it without a knife. Service crisp and attentive. Bit of a chain atmosphere but nice.

“BE CAREFUL USING COUPONS HERE!”
Reviewed September 19, 2013

Before the meal, we received a pretzel/cracker tray with spreadable cheddar cheese which is perfect because when busy all day, you want to eat something quickly after ordering your meal. The prime rib meals received here were very good along with a potato and delicious bread. They also bring to the table a selection of options to put on your baked potato like sour cream, bacon, etc. With our meal, we also received a brownie and ice cream dessert. We felt our meals were very good.

BUT,

I must comment on an issue that was, in our opinion, unfair to the customer. We received a coupon from our timeshare for a meal deal where a party of 2 has particular selections to choose from (like salad or soup, various meats) for a stated price. After ordering and beginning to get the cheese & pretzel tray, we were told that our coupon price had changed and would be charged $2 more than the stated price. We felt it was unfair to charge us the $2 more because we just received this coupon the day before we used it. No dates were written on the coupon so who knew. Definitely, and most importantly, not us. We felt this was bad advertising and is a bait and switch to get customers inside the restaurant. So with this issue, it left a bad taste in our mouth for future visits.

I have given this rating because of the injustice we felt we were treated.

“Used to be better!”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We always ate here every trip to Williamsburg and made sure we had a reservation. This time we were disappointed and will not go back. I think the major problem was our server was forgetful and didn't seem to know anything I asked about - drinks or food. We saw other servers who seemed to be great.
He mixed up our drink orders first.
I ordered a 1/2 lobster tail which was tasteless except for the melted butter. I also got the wrong kind of fries as they have 2 to chose from.
My husband's steak also was tender but not seasoned and he said it had no taste (we had the same thing happen the night before to both of us at another restaurant).
Our other meals in Merchant Square were much better than this one.
