Normally we come here when we want a decent steak with attentive service and a full bar. It is a comfortable place that is somewhere between casual and higher end in atmosphere, but make no mistake -- it is a classic steakhouse with linen tablecloths and an ala carte menu with prices commensurate with a nicer restaurant in our area....

Expensive, not great service and the steaks have never been exceptional. I have been dragged here several times by friends, but came away disappointed every time. Do yourself a favor and go to Longhorn instead for a much better experience.

The food here is good, not great. The prices are high. We've been here a few times and every time I say that I'm not going back. I want to live it, but I simply don't.

As soon as you walk in to the Mahwah location, you feel that this place is old, tired, and past its prime. We were a party of four, celebrating a birthday. One guest was still taking off his coat when the waiter asked for our drink order. We ordered onion rings as one appetizer. They were the strangest-looking, flat, tasteless... More

This was our 5th New Year's Eve dinner here and we always have a pleasant experience. We do miss the Frank Sinatra crooner but he has retired, they could plug in a Harry Connick CD and add some sound over the loud dining area. They were obviously short staffed last night - the very excellent waiters were bussing tables but... More

The hostess, and waiter were nice and helpful. The food was good! We went out with two other couples for date night and it was so loud at the beginning that we had to shout to each other. Also our table was as you came in and out of the dining room and there was a party of 60 in... More

Steaks are first rate, onion soup blend, deserts were well executed. Service was excellent. Unfortunately you cannot park your car!

The location in Edgewater is ten times better than this location. Don't get me wrong, the steak is as good as Edgewater but that is where the comparison stops. The bar area is not great. The salad is solid but some times the dressing is not mixed in like in Edgewater. I had the Cajun shrimp, again not as good... More

Came here with a group from work and promptly ate way too much but still, portions were large and tasted good. Seemed a bit pricey but still a good meal.
