We went there on Christmas Eve after church and it could not have been a more perfect dinner. The ambiance was lovely. It was just what we'd wanted -- a place where the adults could have a fine dinner and our son could have a...More

The portions were sooo small! I ordered a filet that was less than 1/2" thick! My wife loved it, but she ordered oysters, which she said were about the best she's had. I've had better steaks at Texas Roadhouse and Longhorn.
