One of my favorites in my hometown, I have never had a bad meal here. I always get seafood and my husband always gets a steak, always delicious.

We have always enjoyed coming here. They serve really fantastic steaks and you can add toppings of your choice. They also have great sides, great wine and good service.

I liked the price and location. It was a good meal for the cost and the service was attentive. It was not a very nice choice for a romantic evening. The dining room is really open, so there is no privacy. More booths rather than tables would help. There was loud music in the front, though they did give us... More

This is one of the better restaurants to grab a steak in the area. On valentine's day, they outdid themselves. Service was 5 star; food was 5 star; all around 5 star. We haven't been there for awhile so not sure if they stepped up their game for the occasion or if it's the new status quo. Check them out... More

We had great service tonight and our food was excellent. Our server understood the menu with our gluten free party member and accommodated my dad in his wheelchair.

My husband and I really enjoyed the service and ambiance of the restaurant. The food was pretty standard for a steakhouse but well priced. It was also nice that potato and salad were included with the price of the meal, which is not so standard anymore. Overall, we had a wonderful experience and would definitely go back.

In answer to your question, yes we have had better Steaks [for example Ruth Chris]. The service was good, but we now know to not to go on a Friday night. There were too many young children. We love our own Grandchildren, but not while we are trying to enjoy a Steak Dinner.
