Best filet bread and baked potatoe in town. The service is friendly and prompt. The green chili chicken soup is my favorite I have had.

We have been coming here for years. The food and atmosphere is always amazing, however the service is hit or miss. The bartenders and cocktail waitress are always great, very friendly. The waitstaff is inconsistent. Some long time workers who are professional and good at thier jobs, but service can drop off with no one checking on you. Both managers very rude and appathetic. One visit we told a manager that the cook was scratching his face and touching food without washing his hands, he acted like he was bored and could care less. We still love this place and will come back, we have just learned to only eat in the bar. Spinich cheese balls and Indonesian rice are the bomb!

We've been going to Steaksmith for years and years. It is always excellent. It's a little ways from the crowds of the Plaza, is quiet and unpretentious, and serves very good steaks.

After working with clients all day we ended at Steaksmith for a nice end to a good day. Their appetizers and bar service were great, as always. The atmosphere is really nice - great crowd, and perfect ambience. So many chain restaurants are so noisy that you can't hear others at the table, but Steaksmith serves a lot of people while keeping chaos to a minimum (even after work on a Friday!). We have enjoyed Steaksmith for years, and over time noticed the magnificent teamwork of their servers. They are seamless - attentive, prompt, and consistent. I had the all-you-can-eat salad and fresh hot cheesy baked French onion soup, which is in all ways perfect on a clear fall day. There was a nice mix of couples and groups of friends in the bar, and we enjoyed it very much.

The service at the bar is always nice, however, every time we have sat in the dining room it's as if they don't even care. The servers are very indifferent the food is very average and overpriced. This restaurant is in desperate need of a makeover and a remodel. And for some reason the bathroom always smells disgusting. I just recommend having the spinach cheese balls , they are the most amazing things on the menu!
