Had a wonderful steak (tenderloin) but the service was just poor. Orders wrong, service slow......just a lazy attitude among the staff. Everyone was polite but slow and lacked accuracy on each order. At this price it should and could have been better.

City Square Steakhouse pairs small-town charm with unmatched sophistication, and has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Steakhouses in America.
