We having been coming to this place from Tennessee for 5 years for our anniversary. Never disappointed. We always get the porterhouse and crab legs for two and end up taking some home. Its pricey but with it. Everything is seasoned well and very savory.

This restaurant is always busy but they’re very good at getting people in and out. The food is excellent and I’ve never been disappointed by a choice I’ve made. The garlic rolls and Mai Tais are a must.
