Great service. Great steak, cool place. The steak was a perfect medium rare as requested. The waitress rocked. Good value, I was shocked. It's on the second floor above the casino. Not a bad word.

I have eaten dinner here 3 times. It is a good place to eat if you're not looking for anything fancy. It is average, run of the mill... not bad by any means, just your average steakhouse
