The decor was typical for a steakhouse. Not my type of place. The food was average. I didn't care for the options. Don't go if you're not into steaks or seafood. Pricey for a place that wasn't fancy. The waitress was friendly.

I had been here before but don’t remember so I had to come to refresh my memory. My friend first realized that the water came straight from the faucet. We excused that and waited for our food. The chicken soup was fine...could have been creamier...More

We most certainly can. Almost 90% of our menu is gluten free. Please ask your server about specific salad dressings and appetizers. Thank you and hope to see you soon!
