"Grill your own" or the chef will grill it over open charcoal grills. Toast your Texas toast with Garlic butter or seasonings. Try the burgundy mushrooms - yummy! Great ambiance for a business meal or a night out with friends or family.

Like steaks, chops, or swordfish? Super high quality & large cuts of meat cooked to perfection on a huge charcoal grill. Cook it yourself or have their grill master handle it for you. Endless salad and baked potato bar.
