I purchased a Groupon and was able to use a promo code so we paid $33.20 for a $80 Groupon. My steak wasn't exactly cooked as I requested but it was still good. My husband enjoyed his crab cakes. The baked potatoes are huge!

What I didn't like was once we finished dinner, they hurried and completely cleared the table, even of the bread; almost as to rushing us out.
