“Nice Steakhouse”
Reviewed July 2, 2014 via mobile

My husband and I like this steakhouse better than the famous chains in the area. The atmosphere is great and the food is delicious. I have found the steaks to be great and most the sides I have ordered are pretty good too. My favorite is the Sunday morning breakfast buffet. Great value for good appetites.

“Relaxing Place for Lunch!”
Reviewed June 27, 2014

We met a group of friends for a reunion lunch at Rods. The restaurant is beautifully furnished and meticulously clean! The service is impeccable and the food was served hot and fresh! They bring a wonderful basket of fresh breads and crackers along with a date nut loaf which was terrific. I had the free range chicken that was served with potato and fresh vegetables --all were season perfectly. The waiter advised it would be 25 minutes preparation for this dish and I thought that was very impressive to alert you before others began to wonder why food was taking so long! My husband had the Prime Steak Sandwich and it was excellent --tender as could be with mozzarella and red peppers served on a long baguette with shoestring potatoes. I was glad I tasted it --when we return that is what I will order!!! The rest of the group was very pleased as well.
If you are looking for an upscale lunch spot, this would be a great choice. Be prepared as the prices are on the high side - lunch ran $60 a couple. Dinner is much more expensive - but if it is a very special occasion, would be worth the experience.

“Great steak - best in the area”
Reviewed June 17, 2014

Prestigous local restaurant with great steaks (why can't I find steaks of this quality in the UK?) Excellent service without being pretentious and a great ambience. We dined in the railway car which was a little twee but the USA contingent enjoyed it! Would recommend

“Great food in a grand old time restaurant”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

You first see opulent old railroad cars as if arriving at a 19th century rail station but upon entering you are visually greeted with beautiful saloon and dining area reminiscent of the the finest dining places of that period. The richly paneled walls are adorned with large paintings and the chandelier is incredible hanging under a large Tiffany style skylight. Music provided by a single piano was a perfect touch. The food was pricey but well worth it as the chef and staff saw to every detail. The wait staff was always helpful and attentive. This place is a time capsule well worth stepping in to as if actors were on stage trying to convey what life was like in America during a specific time period.
