Service was absolutely fantastic, that's for sure.

However there were some problems with the food and they weren't addressed to my liking which is dragging this experience down in my book.

The good/amazing:
App Tomato Bacon Salad - Unreal how good this was.
Side - Potato Cheese Gnocchi - Unbelievably good.
Side - Parmesan waffle fries - Really nice.
Dessert - Sticky Toffee Cake - Probably the best thing I've ever put in my mouth.

the so-so
Crabcake App - A little undercooked and fishy tasting.

The Bad
Porterhouse for 2. They called it charred, I called it burned to hell. It was ordered medium well, however the top of the steak was burned to a crisp about 1/4 of an inch deep. The meat tasted fine under the burned part, but you still couldn't get the taste out of our mouths. We mentioned it to the staff we were'nt too pleased with it and we figured they'd take it off the bill. They gave us a free dessert, which doesn't make up for a $90 steak.

The rotten
When asked for our choice in water, I just said "still" presuming tap water. Little did I know that still meant $19.00 for spring water.

Overall I think if the steak wasn't so badly burned we would have enjoyed it, but the kick in the guts was the charge for the water and the fact they didn't do anything other than give us a dessert that, even though it was really good, we didn't want and still doesn't make up for the steak.

One of the best statehouse I have ever been: great food, kind and efficient staff, nice environment. Despite the prices, it is a very popular destination, therefore it is better to book well in advance if you want to experience their great fillets

Amazingly cool atmosphere, almost cowboy chic. The decor is definitely an homage to all things meat but in a very elegant and upscale way. Service was great, wait staff was knowledgable, attentive, and friendly. Everything we ordered was fresh and delicious although we were a little disappointed in the ribs we had. Overall would highly recommend to someone who enjoys a good steak and a unique dining
