What a disappointment. There were 8 of us and 3 order prime rib. The waitress didn't mention anything about the problem with it. They are known for their prime rib, but I bet you didn't know that it's NOT cooked to order. They pre-cook it. So there was NO medium rare or rare prime rib. Waitress brought out well done I guess expecting us not to notice. Same problem at table next to us. We should have been told when ordering that the prime rib was only available as well done. Extremely disappointing. Won't be going back as we always thought the food was cooked to order. I don't want my food pre-cooked 8 hours before I get it. Bye Bye Charlie! And, the Average rating is higher than we would give, but the next lower one was poor.

Hi. Sorry to hear about your recent visit to our restaurant, and that we ran out of rare prime rib. We should've notified you of the temperature that was available upon ordering. And, yes, you are right. Unfortunately prime rib cannot be cooked to order. It is slow-roasted for many hours which is why it's so juicy and flavorful.

This restaurant was handy to the hotel where we were staying. The service was good (not excellent) and the food was great. While we were there the salad bar was replenished several times which had everything fresh. Although it is called a steak house there are many other selections.

Food wasn't bad, but can't say it was great. Salad bar was decent, alot of options. Husband and son had steak I had a Chicken Marsala. Did not taste fresh, more like frozen warmed up. Steaks were lackluster, definately had a chain restaurant feel/

Had prime rib and it was ok. The salad bar was very good and many choices. Had to wait an hour to be seated but it was a Saturday night.

Always a decent meal, but this time very disappointing that they were out of salmon. We were there early (5pm) on Saturday night. Out of salmon? Seriously? It wasn't very busy at that time but our server was not very attentive. Restaurant offers complimentary refills on your sodas, but we waited 15 minutes for a refill. Food was cooked as ordered. Salad bar good as always. We rated service as "average" because the next one was "poor". It was below average, but not poor.
