Dinner was very good. Our entrees were perfectly served as were the appetizers. We didn't expect to spend quite so much for 4 people however it would not stop us from going back for another special occasion event.

You will have one of the best steaks around for a realistic price. Service is outstanding and the entire dinner was excellent.

Originally had rsvp's for 2; had family drive over and easily was able to change it to 4. Our meals were great & the atmosphere was so relaxing.

We decided to give this restaurant the benefit of the doubt, especially given the mixed reviews/ some of the negative reviews. Unfortunately, the entire dining experience -from the food, ambiance, and service- was just terrible. How can a steak house not know how to season...More

I didn't take notice to be honest as we went to just have steak. I'm sure they have non meat items on the menu. I would not recommend their sides though as they were greasy and over cooked.
