One can always count on good food, good drinks, and a friendly staff at this old time chophouse. Welcome starts as one enters through the kitchen to a chorus of "Hellos". We went on St Patrick's Day, fully intending to have the generous plate of corned beef and cabbage. After considering our options at the "big boy" bar, we selected... More

It was interesting entering the restaurant through the kitchen. We were sat immediately and tended to very well throughout the entire meal. Our waiter was very efficient and never let a drink go dry. One minor thing was that our waiter had zero discernible personality. As my brother said "He has all the personality of a State Patrolman". I would... More

You cannot visit Phoenix without a stop to Gail, best bartender I've ever met. She makes the best martinis. Great to sit at a booth in the bar to watch the scene which hasn't changed since it's 1950s red velvet wallpaper. Most people don't know that the scallops and shrimp are as good as the steaks. But let's talk meat.... More

One of the more memorable places we have have visited. Excellent old school waiter, said he'd been working there for 30+ years. The bread and dipping butter sauce was certainly unique and a big hit, be careful it could ruin your appetite. We both had NY Steaks and the preparation was a perfect medium rare. Sauteed mushrooms, delicious and the... More

Very good meal. Just so you don't have to ask, the Durant Debris are steak pieces on a stick grilled with green onions and served with a garlic aoli. Meal was very good from start to finish. Wife and I both had the ribeye and they were well marbled and not overly fatty but still very flavorful and juicy. Didn't... More

This place is an institution to fine dining and has been so for ages. The quality of the meals and service explain why this is so. My only problem was seeing. Coming in from a usual, bright, sunny Arizona afternoon, I was blinded by the semi-darkness inside. Had I not borrowed the waiter's penlight, I could not have seen the... More

Wonderful, big, juicy steaks. Best in town for sure and the staff acts a bit like that, too. Not the heartiest service, but efficient and does it stuff. Busy, needs an advance reservation.

The porterhouse steak is one of the best you will ever eat, but this place should have loan officers on hand so customers can finance their meals. Their pea soup in incredible, and I actually hate peas.

This is fine dining at its best. Of course it is pricey but you must evaluate it on the basis of "value" rather than "price". This is perfection in cooking, ambiance, presentation and service. My husband and I enjoyed one of the red booths for my birthday dinner and I would recommend requesting a booth when you call for reservations... More
