Being from the Midwest, where beef is king, we are often disappointed with beef in NC. We tried the Porterhouse Steak for Two special, and were absolutely wowed. As the owner came by to check on each table, we mentioned we noticed the steak was happily reminiscent of the delectable steaks we were used to in Kansas City. Sure enough,... More

I love their ribeye. I keep going back for more. Watch out for dessert though. Can be very addicting, especially the buttermilk pie! A bit pricey, but worth the trip. I would go more often, if the prices were a bit lower.

The homemade salad dressing were a treat. The wife's chicken was served just right and my steak was tender was a grilled flavor. No rush. Homemade desserts.

The salad bar is basic, but very fresh. Not a bunch of EXOTIC stuff you will not eat anyway. The steaks are cooked, my wife and I share a rib eye and a shout plate charge gives you salad and a side. Then the desserts... you can count on all off them being very good. We like the buttermilk pie.

We live in Clayton and this is one of our regular spots for "date night." Not a big meat eater, so I can't say much about the steaks, but I do enjoy their Frenched chicken breast, which has a little bit of the buffalo wing still attached and is always perfectly cooked. Good salad bar, impeccable service. Highly recommended is... More
