We were warmly greeted upon arrival, the service is good, fast and friendly. You should definately eat a steak once you’re here - the selection is great and the sirloin is very tasty.

We most certainly can. Almost 90% of our menu is gluten free. Please ask your server about specific salad dressings and appetizers. Thank you and hope to see you soon!
