I used to come here often until recently and after that visit I will never return! The food was good as usual and the service was fine however the owner was outwardly mean and vicious to to his guests. There was a table near us that was dining with their children, (a Sunday at 5:00 with a nearly empty dining... More

Lovely staff and our waiter was very nice. I had the filet minon with the mushroom sauce on the side. We also had the red bliss mashed potatoes. Everything was delicious. Mom and I had the coconut cake -- it was so big we should have shared. So delicious. We have family in the area so we are in Silver... More

I love this place! The steaks are great, and the prices can't be beat. Try the creative appetizers, in particular the bacon appetizer and the deviled eggs. You will be pleased. When you see the prices you will be shocked at how low they are compared to other places. The price aside, honestly, I think their steak quality and preparations... More

Stopped by just to meet a buddy from High School. Ended up having dinner and cocktails. Soup, salad and dessert were all well prepared and worth a return trip.

The service and food were both good, not great. I've had a better rib eye. The filet was undercooked. The wine list was minimal. Everything else was fine. I would go back.

I rank this local steak house over Ruth Chris. offerings may not be as much but what they have is fantastic plus it's the type of place where the staff remembers you. Hadn't been here in a long time but a lot of familiar faces were there to greet my friend and I. If you want a burger this place... More

My husband and I were in the mood for a good hamburger. The Classics is the place to go for it.(Also have an extensive menu for other things including hanger steak, that are well priced) The manager was friendly and greeted us. We sat in the bar area that includes tables and chairs. First, spicy cashews and bread arrived at... More

Nowhere better for Steaks, and the prices can't be beat. Everyone I take here loves it - seriously. What impresses me is the how they flavor their food. You can tell the really care about what they serve. Highly recommend.

I think this is probably a good local spot to go to for a drink, to watch a game or to have a casual meeting with friends. I had a business dinner there. The food was very underwhelming so it's not a place to impress people.
