Vinnie's Steakhouse and Tavern
Expecting Morton's got moreFantastic staff, chef and manager got the evening started in the right direction. The menu options were broad and the food preparation was exactly as requested. The wine selection was impeccable, and the manager was able to provide direction on a suitable wine for our desire of the evening. The signature dessert completed the experience and we left planning the next opportunity to return.6/14/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding Steak House. WeOutstanding Steak House.

Would prefer less cigar smoke. A bit pricey for size of meals6/4/2013 12:00:00 AM2nd visit to Vinnie'sOur 2nd time to Vinnie's the first was a few months ago with a large party and it was very good so we decided to try it on our own. Classic old school steak house on inside with the decor. Food was great we both had steak and it was cooked perfectly .
Seemed pretty busy for a Tuesday night but we didn't feel packed in like some other places we have been. Romantic dinner for our anniversary and it was great. Our waitress could of been a bit more attentive she disappeared a few times and our drinks ran low but over all a very good evening. Plan to go back and maybe try some of the Italian dishes they looked great when we saw some of the neighboring tables getting them.6/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Spot for Special OcassionVinnie's was great. The service, food and ambience made for a memorable wedding anniversary dinner. The quality of the seafood and steaks rivals popular premium chains like Ruth's Chris and Flemings.

We go as often as we can-either just my husband and I or with couples or with a business group. Never ever disappointed. Steve is the best bartender in town and Diane is fabulous when we dine in the dining room. Nothing but positive things to say and hoping to be Vinnie's regulars for years to come.

Menu was terrific, many things that were different from the usual and very appetizing. Wait staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Manager came to our table to ask how things were and talked about upcoming events at the restaurant. A special occasion dining experience, somewhat pricey but well worth it.4/11/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat restaurant! We driveGreat restaurant! We drive 45 minutes to eat here. The food is marvelous & the waitstaff are attentive without being intrusive.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA special dining experienceCut of meats could not have been more perfectly served or cooked. Service was outstanding. While I recall seeing avg. meal was $30, plan on twice that amount per person. While I hate to be negative toward a good alternative spot, I would come to Vinnie's before I ever go to the Angus Barn every time. Thanks for a great meal! Side note, Vinnie's is not known for their fries, so order anything else, fries just take away from an otherwise fantastic dining experience. When you cannot wait to have your leftovers for your next meal, you know you had a special divining experience.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Outstanding evening at Vinnie'sOver the years, every visit to Vinnie's -- weather its with a group, a seat at the bar, a dinner with friends, or a romantic outing with my wife -- it has always been and outstanding experience. The service is always super friendly and extremely professional and the food and wine are always top notch. I have never had a bad experience or a bad meal there. Very much worth every dollar spent.3/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe found our place!We have been going to Vinnie's for several weeks now to take advantage of their half price bottles of wine on Tuesday nights. But what keeps us coming back is the food. They use fresh local ingredients which is very important to me. Chef Tom is very creative and everything is just delicious. The service and atmosphere is a throwback from a different time where they really make you feel at home and just can't wait to go back.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding steak house withOutstanding steak house with wonderful seafood entrees as well. Side dishes and salads are also exceptional. First rate service staff!3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMA consistently great experience!My wife and I have been more than 5 times over several years and have never been disappointed! This place is a relatively unknown gem of a steakhouse, and certainly rivals The Angus Barn, Sullivan's, and Ruth's Chris. Although the steaks are awesome, it's the sides that keep us interested. Some notables: gouda potatoes au gratin, fried squash, and Gruyere mac and cheese.3/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
