The waiters are great and the food is delicious. The only suggestion is they need more normal entre choices on the menu, such as grilled chicken breast, or center cut pork chops.

We met family for lunch. Food was decent but not worth the price. Food was not the same quality as it was in the past. Service was decent. Doubtful we will return.

Premium steaks are the typical draw for this restaurant, however, the real gem is a dessert. Please, definitely try the Steak Maui. But do not leave without enjoying the warm gooeyness that is the Carrot Cake, which is almost a meal in itself.
