My man friend and I had dinner here a week ago. The service was excellent! I had a ribeye and it was perfection! The atmosphere is very nice and romantic. We really enjoyed ourselves. We will definitely be back

Lots of choice, the food was great. I had an incredible steak. The locals seem to like this place. Service was fine too.
