Food is good, not great and it's not worth $35 or $45 for a steak--- A steak with some butter on top. Everything on the menu is 20% overpriced. I've eaten organic aged steak, thick and juicy for $45 and has a ton more flavor!

So: take a steak sort of cooked to your liking, add a couple of little chunks of blue cheese on top, then charge $36.95. But that's not all folks: charge $17.50 for a large helping of scalloped potatoes, or $10.50 for the vegetable of the...More

Service was rather inattentive, had to wait 10 minutes for a water while all the servers were huddled around the bar chatting. Food was worse than service, could only taste pepper in he tar tar and the meat looked highly oxidized. Would save your money...More

Sorry we did not meet your expectations, our upstairs dining room is more traditional steak house with other dinner options as well and our lounge is a more casual menu with inclusive meals. I would love to hear more about your experience if you wish...More
