The steak here was excellent, and didn't cost a fortune. The bartender Chris, was very friendly and courteous. Tuesdays are half-priced wine nights. If you want steak in an old-style place, this is it.

Old school steak house with good food and 80's music in the background. Both of our steaks were great and cooked to order perfectly. I ordered a medium ribeye and wife ordered the NY Strip medium the sides were average.
