Nice enough, clean enough, good enough service.

Our prime rib was just tough, not chewy, tough.

Tab with tip was $100, I have had London Broil that was not that tough

The meat was not Prime meat

Thanks Denny for the feedback. I am sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your prime rib as It is always a favorite among our guests. I always try and ensure our guests complete satisfaction. That being said I would be happy to send you a gift card so that you may try something else on your next visit.

Thanks

Excellent - atmosphere, taste, and service were wonderful. I can't wait to go again. A little pricey, but great for an occasional splurge.

We were looking for somewhere to eat at somewhat late in the day and booked this restaurant simply because of the reviews.

It's not the likeliest candidate for a great meal being a little out of the way and located in a slightly obscure strip. However, there were plenty of cars outside which is always a good sign.

It's wasn't packed - a shame for a Saturday night - but that just meant it was just fine! Overall the food was outstanding from start to finish. The warm bread and oil as a taster was excellent for example.

Fried green tomatoes and a wedge salad were followed by surf and turf kebabs and a small NY strip steak with garlic mash. All of the food is clearly prepared freshly, presented well and most importantly cooked very well. The vegetables were done perfectly for example.

Service was attentive and interested and overall I thought this was a great performance. We shall certainly be back and would recommend strongly - worth the drive.

We had heard this was a good steak restaurant. The food was fine. Steaks cooked ok. But the big screen TVs made in more like a sports bar than a restaurant. The tables are SO close that its like having dinner with strangers. If I am going to pay these prices I expect the atmosphere to be much better.

The service was great, so was the porterhouse steak I ordered. Everything was very tender and tasty.
