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.

Nothing artisan, but solid steaks and sides. The drinks were good, too. Not world class, but nice. Reservations required on weekends.

Award-winning chef Mike Mariola and wife, Emily, opened The City Square Steakhouse in 2008. City Square Steakhouse pairs small-town charm with unmatched sophistication, and has been recognized as one of the Top 100 Steakhouses in America. The City Square Steakhouse has been a staple in the community over the past decade, serving juicy Certified Angus Beef steaks and burgers, fresh seafood and vegetarian entrees, house-made sides and desserts, along with craft beers and cocktails.
