A fun evening with out of town family to celebrate a birthday. A very busy night at the restaurant. The waitress was very attentive. The food was delicious, 3 steak dishes & 3 pork, all cooked as ordered. Great wine & a special birthday desert.

Service was terrific. Food came out so quickly it almost startled us. It was average at best. My colleague is a vegetarian and I asked for no salt on my fries. He got his veggie burger but my fries were too salty to eat. Got the bill - outrageous. $50 for two sandwiches and soft drinks?! No thanks.

We visited here a few years ago with the family, and this time with just the two of us. I enjoyed a Caesar salad to start, with one of the few times I've ever been offered anchovies!

Lunch visit with a former co-worker friend. Very nice menu and ordered off the special menu. Had the Mexican steak tacos. The meat was great but a little on the light side to fill a taco. Three soft tacos and filling. The service was very good during a busy lunch rush.

We had a nice meal here recently. The service was excellent. We each had a steak and those were very good. The sides were fine but kind of standard. They have an extensive wine list and drink menu. The highlight though was probably the carrot cake. If that's your thing, I wouldn't leave here without having a piece for dessert.

The menu is excellent. This place is known for its prime rib. They do it very well. The rest of the menu is excellent. They now added a wood burning pizza oven. Big salads, big portions, and a great bar.

A friend recommended that we meet for a business lunch here because it was convenient and great parking. That is all true, and the food is amazingly good, best artichokes and Brussels sprouts! Amazing trout and deserts. Nice atmosphere, easy to hear each other and very professional service.
