Standard fare for a steakhouse, a la cart experience and expense. The only app..horseradish overkill unseasoned shrimp. Unless I have a sinus infection I’ll never order those again. Not a fan!!More

Sensational shrimp cocktail, lobster bisque soup, wedge salad, bread, ribeye steak and fresh peach blue berry pie with vanilla ice cream. WOW, the service was extremely helpful and efficient. I would go again, again, and again.

The shrimp cocktail is as advertised. A must have to start your meal. Lobster Bisque was vert good. Steaks come with a real loaded bake potato. The filet and ribeye were delicious. Really a must if your visiting Indy.
