Food is clearly the top reason to go. Chicken was a bit overdone and onion straws were much too salty. We dine quite frequently, 2-3 times monthly. The only other time we had a suboptimal meal was a carry out filet - not a good cut of meat.

Otherwise still one of our favorite restaurants in town.

Great service to include the parking guys.

We celebrated our anniversary here, and what a treat! We had the barrel cut filet, ribeye, truffle fries, mac & cheese (HEAVENLY) and asparagus. It all paired beautifully with a 2010 Bordeaux. The cheesecake was so smooth and creamy too. Between the food, the service, and my company - it was an incredible evening.

We love steak and they had a a great selection of different sizes and cuts. We went with the 20oz Porterhouse with béarnaise, it was so tender and juicy. We didn’t do side dishes since we had soup and bread and we could barely eat the complimentary desserts they offered us when they ran out of the 30 oz tomahawk steak my husband had husband eye on. It was such a great meal and a wonderful atmosphere.

From the moment you drive up to the restaurant you are made to feel special. The food is incredible. The manager, Charlie, was so attentive and our server Greg Rahill was amazing.
It is our first choice of restaurant when we have a special occasion to celebrate!

The staff even personally signed a Thank You For Your Service card and presented to my date! The added touch made it so personal to our experience. It was so special and the food is wonderful!

My wife and I celebrated an early Valentine's Day dinner. The atmosphere was classic Jeff Ruby in an intimate, warm dinning room. Dan was our waiter and he was spot on. Not hovering but we never felt ignored or neglected. The food was delicious. The salmon was a little tricky as it came out a bit past medium first and rare/mid rare the second time. Delicious, nonetheless. The steak was first class. I highly recommend the butter pie (chess pie for Southerners)! Will definitely go back!
