Went here with a gift certificate. The place is nice inside but some of the tables are way too close to the massive grills which makes the whole dining experience hot and crowded. We had a table for two right next to the grill and...More

Cook your own or have the chef prepare it perfectly. The cuts are generous. The service is prompt and helpful. We bring a group of 30 regularly and the service isn't slowed at all. If you are near Princeton you need to treat yourself!

Lots of food to eat. Salad bar had a variety of choices. Waitress as well as the host were friendly. Prices were within range of fine dining. Cook your own steaks or they will do it for you. Very nice place...

We stumbled upon this restaurant by accident, and it was wonderful. It reminded me of a supper club restaurant. You can grill your own steaks or for 2.00 the chef will grill. They were delicious. We got a delicious baked potato and a big portion...More
