I took my Girlfriend here to celebrate a special occasion. From the moment we were sat down, the service was terrible. Menus tossed onto the table in front of us. Waiter was all smiles and cheerful talking to the guests at the tables around us,...when he got to our table we got a curt 'you know what you want?' Other tables received their orders, including people who arrived after us, and when I would try to flag down the waiter, he would always say, I'll be right there, then continue ignoring us. When we finally got our food it was obvious that it had been sitting for awhile. We tried to make the best of it anyways, and when we saw other tables getting a dessert that involved catching it on fire and the server made a big presentation of it, me and my Girlfriend wanted to try it as well. When the waiter finally came to our table with the cart to prepare the dessert he just made it as quickly as possible with none of the flair and excitement he had for the other diners. The waiters attitude towards us that other diners were commenting on us and someone even asked if we knew him, I replied that we did not. I assume that the fact that we were younger, our waiter might have figured we wouldn't tip well. Well, it was a self fulfilling prophesy if that was the case. I tipped the minimum 15% tip and now I warn everyone to avoid this place. There are better restaurants for the price.More

Expectations were not met. We were given the worst table in the house next to the kitchen entrance (28) with constant Server traffic. Enjoyed the food. Service was not polished. Thought we were going to have a dining experience. We just ended up out to...dinner but spent $400. Had been really looking forward to this evening out and left completely disappointed.More

The noise hit me as soon as we walked into the restaurant. A large party of approximately 40 people were seated in the center of the restaurant. They were VERY LOUD! It made it very hard for us to have our own table talk and...hear the waiter as we were seated right next to them. I would recommend large groups have their own room if possible. That aside, the restaurant is outstanding. The food and service were impeccable. My rating would be 5 stars if not for the noise. I had the filet mignon and lobster tail which was excellent. We had a couple of bottles of very good wine. I loved the decor with it's rich dark wood. It was my wife's and I 50th wedding anniversary and the staff took our picture and presented it to us upon departing. That was a nice touch. I recommend this place and would go back the next time I am in town.More

A great dining experience starts with great service. We started off with the Crab Cakes and the mango salsa was the perfect compliment. I had the Porterhouse which was perfectly grilled. My husband had the Bone-In Ribeye. He enjoyed it very much. I really wanted...to try the Cornish Hens and the Sea Bass but I’m only one person and when you’re at a steakhouse, you have to try the steak. Perhaps we’ll have to return!More

Hy's is fine dining at it's best. I love to eat out, as witnessed by my many reviews, and I cannot recommend Hy's enough. I have been eating there for the last 6 years, never had anything that wasn't first class. Word of caution to...newbees, if you order the aged steak, which I do recommend, do not eat the fat. Stick to the meat.More
