Myself and 3 others had dinner here, at 5pm on a Friday evening. I was recently diagnosed with a heart condition that doesn't allow me to have caffeine. I asked the waitress for something without caffeine, and was told Coke Zero, so I ordered it. Before drinking it, I looked online and noticed it DOES have caffeine, so I returned... More

The meals and soup while good were not exceptional nor had any style. The service was good as well as the bread. The booths are exceptionally tight.

Two couples dropped in after a movie. Two had small steaks, two had grilled chicken. Food was great and served very promptly. Steaks were done exactly as ordered. Chick was perfectly seasoned and juicy.Service was outstanding!

Not a bad place but, with so many choices nearby, not at the top of the list. Steaks are good and mostly everything is decently priced.

Me and my husband thought we would try this place again after years. First the hostess was not very happy looking. Once seated it took a long time for a waitress to come by and they were not busy. Food wasnt our taste i guess..but we ordered salads, shrimp, mac and cheese bites, and steaks. Both of our steaks were... More

My wife and I went on New Years for steak. We have visited this location many times and found the food to be terrific. Last night, my wife had a filet which she said was tender and melt in your mouth delicious. I had a porterhouse cooked medium rare, and it was tougher than the shoe I was wearing. Very... More

Steaks are decent but overpriced. Their food is ok but everything seems to be cooked from frozen and overseasoned. Service is friendly and helpful and the staff is always smiling when we are there. I just can't justify spending steakhouse prices on less than steakhouse-quality food. There are better, locally owned, places nearby where you can get good food cooked... More

This used to be an excellent place for steaks and other food. The quality has really gone down. Steak was thin and tasteless. Not a very good experience.
