    Betty was our server. She was very attentive and pleasant. She was familiar with the menu and gave us some good recommendations. The food was awesome! Cooked exactly the way we wanted. It did not take a long time to get our order. It was our first time there and we will be back.

    Our server, Betty, was absolutely amazing. They didn't have a drink that my friend would like, she offered suggestions and between her and bartender created a perfect cocktail for her. She was very attentive and made our celebration even better!

    Seated at a great table!!! Bread was hard. Husbands steak was not done. He asked for medium and it was still bleeding rare. Steaks had no seasoning or favor. Not worth the money. Sides were small portions. Overall great service but terrible food. Not a good Valentine’s Day.

    Greeter warmly by reception & promptly seat; server arrived but failed to mention all the off menu items that were available (ribs, chicken parm, ect) when she told us about the specials; learned of other items by overhearing a different server greet/rap her table; ordered Irish egg rolls & they were lacking corned beef; Ribs were my dinner choice & they were also a disappointment - nothing but bone

    The special stuffed mushrooms were excellent and the filet mignon were cooked exactly as requested. The service was excellent. The chocolate mocha cake was rich and too much for 2 people at one sitting. The remainder of the cake was definitely brought home.

    Service was great. Food was average. Everything was cooked well but nothing was seasoned properly and for the price point I expected better. I could've gotten a better meal at Longhorn for half the price.

    Great place if you’re looking for great service, friendly staff & good food. Bar tenders are great as is the wait staff. Great place for New Year’s Eve dinner. Not overly pretentious, but clearly a good quality steakhouse. Owner was there talking with customers. The atmosphere was inviting.

    We were sat when we arrived for our reservation. The server stopped by almost immediately and took our drink orders. The bread was served warm, was fresh and good. We ordered an appetizer and dinner at the same time and the app never got to us...which was fine as the meals were enough. The prime rib was very good. Others had the salmon and filet and both said they were good as well. To full for dessert but they sounded good!

    Great apps, cocktails, steaks & deserts. Server was very nice, attentive & brought out a candle in the cake for my Dad’s birthday. We were seated rather close to the kitchen entrance so it was the only part that was a little awkward, there isn’t really a door, just a curtain, so lots of servers bustling behind me & we kept hearing the timers going off. But the place was very crowded/full on a Friday night, so just happy we had a table!

    Went here for a much deserved night out with my hubby after not feeling well for over a week. We were excited to try something and i was so happy to be out. We were able to get a reservation same day. The server was a sweetheart and really cared about us, but the food was HORRIBLE!!! I literally cried after the chef refused to take the steak back. I ordered the 6oz filet and it literally shrunk to more than half its size. I was presented with a 3 oz steak and it was like shoe leather and dry/bland. There was no seasoning. My hubby’s prime was bland as well. For $40+ a steak, this place definitely does not deliver on quality. My husband was told the chef would not fix anything and that he stood on his decision. We were offered a free cheesecake. After much more pleading to fix the steak, the manager took it off the bill. I left there in tears as I just wanted to eat a meal out one night. I didn’t want anything off my bill, I wanted to eat a filet that tasted like steak. I am heartbroken that this place sees this as acceptable. We were told the chef has been there for nearly three decades. This frightens me that unless you do as the dictator wants, you won’t be taken care of at this establishment. We will never be returning. Tears were the bottom line and I simply wanted to go home. Restaurants shouldn’t bring up this much emotion on the negative side.

    We have not been here in years (old location), but we made a special trip from the East side (50 min drive) to revisit what we did remember b/c it was one of the most amazing dinners I've ever had. I recalled amazing french onion soup, amazing black and blue filet - and wonderful ambiance. We made reservations and were seated immediately. Waitress was wonderful and attentive. I ordered the french onion soup as an appetizer and the Surf and Turf (filet/scampi) with blue cheese crust. My husband ordered the surf and Prime Rib. To start I was disappointed that my soup and (both of our salads) were delivered at the same time. I felt rushed to eat as to not let my soup get cold, but enjoy our salads together. I would have liked to enjoy my soup separately without having to rotate back and forth between the two. When my filet was brought to the table, it was missing the blue cheese sauce on top (my biggest request). The waitress brought me a "side" of it which seemed microwaved b/c half was hot; half was cold. Filet was cooked perfectly and the side of garlic mashed was eh. I thought the scampi was cooked well, but it was so bland even with the butter (which seemed unsalted) My husband's prime rib was "average ...and not the best he ever had." He also said it was a bit on the fatty side. He loved the scampi and ate the remainder of mine. I was also surprised at the dress code seated around us. We spent over $200 on this meal and were seated near two tables that had guests in construction work attire (neon sweatshirts, baseball caps, and work boots). Not that it affected our dinner, but when you're spending over $200 to dine - you'd expect some sort of dress code policy to make it feel a little more upscale. Overall we won't make the trip to return. If we lived locally - perhaps we'd revisit, but certainly not what we remembered.
